I hoped he'd come to that conclusion on his own based on the fact that gun crimes still happen in cities with minimal legal gun ownership.Chicago has much stricter gun laws than New York City. Chicago's homicide rate is ten times higher than New York City's.
Plenty of cities with draconian firearm laws have high homicide rates, and plenty of cities awash in firearms don't. The only "conclusion" that can be drawn is that gun laws' impact on violent crime is inconclusive.
