Other Opinion: On gun-violence research, California sets an example for the nation

Reader Opinion: Correlation?
See if you can figure it out. Chicago ended 2016 with over 4,300 shootings and 762 murders. In 2017 they already have 27 shootings and 3 murders. Chicago has been under Democrat leadership for decades. Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country. Is there a logical...
