I believe the FBI uniform crime reports track the number of gun related crimes... but there wouldn't be a differentiation between legal and illegal gun owners.

If there were a way to tell the difference you would see interesting patterns in cities and first tier suburbs.

It also depends on your definition of a "gun crime". If you are talking robberies, of course illegal will come out ahead. If you are talking about situations where guns are illegally used in traditionally non criminal events....then the legal gun owner stat would start to rise quickly.

I did not think there would be a break down. Thank you.
