The Chicago Sun-Times interviewed a young Chicago teen and police informer to find out how gang members obtain guns in Chicago. The answer? After phone call to his “gun guys” and a bicycle ride down the street he is strapped.
Chicago police give more details into where these guns actually come from: they’re either purchased legally (by “straw purchasers” and then sold into the black market) or stolen.
Remember, keep your firearms safely locked up and know what we are up against: easily obtainable guns for criminals.
