And what is the city in question?
The gun-free, utopia of Chicago of course.
That in itself isn't so unexpected. We all know that gun control doesn't work and that the unattended consequence of increased restrictions on firearms is almost always an increase in the illicit trade and use of firearms.
What's particularly troubling is the way the story is reported. NBC Chicago engaging in the same hatchet job reporting CNN was caught in years ago: Talking about assault weapons while showing video of fully automatic weapons.
Either NBC Chicago is intentionally confusing the public, looking for high ratings, or they are just plain idiots who can't do basic fact checking. I personally think it's a combination of all the above. This doesn't excuse the ATF though. They should know better, but then again, they've never been on the side of honesty or integrity.
Either way they make Josh Sugarmann proud.
