Pence rejected a suggestion by CNN host Jake Tapper that lax gun safety laws in his own state, Indiana, may be stoking violence in Chicago. A study by The Trace gun tracking project of firearms recovered in Chicago from 2010 to 2014 found that most out-of-state guns originated in Indiana, which neighbors Illinois to the east.
“Firearms within the hands of law-abiding citizens” increase public safety, Pence said.
