Huh. As gun laws were loosened, gang violence increased too. Well I be damned.

I wonder if the increase in guns helped gangs in other places too?

Maybe somewhere like, say, Mexico...

I don't think I'd bring up border states where Obama had a penchant to arming Mexican cartels.

In the four years following the expiration of the U.S. Federal Assault Weapons Ban (AWB), the homicide rate in Mexico increased 45 percent. Over the same period, over 60,000 firearms recovered in Mexico have been traced back to the U.S. A difference-in-difference approach is used to estimate the effect of the expiration of the AWB on homicide rates in Mexico; states with a strong pre-2005 drug cartel presence are defined as the treatment group. The baseline estimates suggest the expiration of the AWB is responsible for at least 16.4 percent of the increase in the homicide rate in Mexico between 2004 and 2008.

I'm assuming you're furiously looking for data to pin this all on minorities - oops, sorry - I mean "thugs".

Who needs 2 parents when the government provides.

I would be curious about how many of those murders actually came at the hands of someone wielding a sub machine gun or "assault style" rifle?

And how many were just plain old pistols.
