The El Paso Miracle

El Paso, Texas, has high poverty and minimal gun control. It’s right across the river from one of the most violent cities in the western hemisphere, Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Yet, El Paso is one of the safest big cities in the U.S.

Chicago, famously, has strict gun control and is one of the most dangerous cities in the country. Gee, maybe gun control doesn’t work quite the way its proponents imagine.
