All cities well known for gun violence.
When it comes to spree killings they're almost always conducted using legal guns. In fact I don't know of any where they were carried out using illegally acquired firearms.
Makes sense if you think about it: These killings are generally carried out by psychotic and socially awkward loners. They tried to set up a gun buy on the black market what's the betting the "seller" comes away with both the money AND the gun he was supposed to be selling?
