    WI Gun crime stats?

    Does anyone know if the LEOs, DAs etc obtain info on HOW a person using a gun to commit a crime obtained that particular firearm? Might be interesting to see where the source really is. Im guessing that info is something the antis would not want out there..

    The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel wants you to believe that all crime guns in WI came from Badger Guns.

    I guess id like to see how far back one has to go before we find out the gun is stolen or illegally transferred. Probably not far.

    Try this:
    http://gunfacts.info/pdfs/gun-facts/...5.1-screen.pdf

    On page 33 there are references to a study done by the USDOJ showing that 93% of guns used in crimes are obtained illegally.

    Does that work for you GlockRDH?
