This is something I ran across somewhere. And by rights, its true. Chicago does have VERY strict gun laws, but still has a gun huge crime rate. Hence the dubbing “Chiraq” by some locals.
End of story? I would have thought so to.
I encourage all to watch the episode of Vice that visits Chicago. You will learn there, that though the city of Chicago has strict controls on weapons sold within it, THE LAWS DO NOT APPLY IN ITS SUBURBS. Nor does any law cover guns purchased in southern states (or anywhere else) and distributed in cities as far North as Toronto.
The message here is, what you see on the surface, is not always the WHOLE picture.
