"Survey: Crooks get guns from pals, don't keep them long"
Even so, attempts to compromise the 2nd Amendment roll on...
This Chicago Sun-Times story, written by Frank Main, confirms what many of us already know:
"In a survey of almost 100 detainees in the Cook County Jail, few said they get firearms at gun shows or through the Internet, said Harold Pollack, co-director of the crime lab. They also said they don’t normally steal guns or buy them at a licensed store.
'Some of the pathways people are concerned about don’t seem so dominant,' Pollack said. Most of the inmates said they had a gun within six months of getting locked up. And most said they got the weapons through personal connections because they feared getting caught in a law-enforcement sting or being robbed by a stranger. "
