    which is already illegal since someone selling guns as a "non dealer" is most likely violating federal law

    Seems to me that gangs might have something to do with it, but that could be wrong, too.

    Thats the whole point ditto...it is the same...take an all white neighborhood, put in all the ingredients that make for a high crime black neighborhood and you get the same RESULTS...crime is not a RACE driven event in itself....
    Heres some facts...there are few all white neighborhoods left in inner cities...number 1....black neighborhoods are far poorer than white neighborhoods.
    and none of us can deny that.
    People like to put labels on crime...there is none...crime is driven by environmental and economics..peer pressure everytime you walk out your door...IDLENESS remember its the devils workshop TRUE!!!....poor people, uneducated, have wants and desires...they see what others have on TV...just like you or I....and IN THEIR MIND they have no other way of getting it except to steal it...or sell something illicit to buy it...I know all the excuses for that...GET A JOB...no one will hire them for anything less than peanuts if even that....some want to achieve, want to get ahead and cant...they cant get a break period...now i know everyone is going to come out of the woodwork and say there govt this and that...that doesnt overide ignorance hoplelessness and PEER Pressure...these kids dont get out of their teens without huge rap sheets...that stops them cold for alot of opportunities.

    Yeah, I know from measurement. I've been on both sides, and I will be looking to get back west ASAP. The East is terrible, full of terrible people and terrible things and terrible weather. I wish we could chop it off, clone the West, and stick it on the East. Boarded on both sides by California? Hell ya!

    I'm sorry, this is measured fact. All places have their assholes, but the East sets the bar. Biggest assholes in the country.

    It will be easier to ignore it though.
