Interesting comparison – – Coupled with the only possible reason / conclusion for the pronounced differences between the two cities – – It’s quite obvious – – Don’t you think?
Note: In the future some of these stats may change because as all you knowledgeable gun people know during 2014 Illinois was forced by the courts to allow Concealed Carry in the state. So it may help the crime rates in the future there. We can only hope, but based on these Stats there is nothing really going to help them until this whole Global Warming cold weather thing goes away;-)
Take care and Stay Safe
