Guns and state borders: Trekking north | The Economist

Andrew Arulanandam, director of public affairs for the National Rifle Association, called Mayors Against Illegal Guns “intent on enacting some form of gun control” and predicted that people would be “wary about believing so-called studies that come from groups that have an interest in the outcome.” And he ought to know.

“…in 2009 ten states (Arizona, California, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas and Virginia) supplied almost half the interstate-trafficked guns recovered at crime scenes”
“…90% of the guns recovered from crime scenes in Mexico and traced led back to American dealers”

Surely there’s a clue in there somewhere.
