It's surreal to watch people dance around the problem and pretend like guns are the issue in Chicago.
There is nothing surreal about a lack of geography knowledge, it's pretty common.
Yes, NW Indiana has a lot of poor black and hispanic people that shoot each other with...guns. Gangs are the main problem over here however, access to guns isn't helping. It's very easy to get weapons in Chicagoland. You can take public trans just a few miles and buy it legally. In NYC you have to go way way further (VA is popular) and that makes a difference.
