This evening on CNN, Anderson Cooper will explore why Chicago, which has the strictest (or one of the strictest) gun control laws in America, is overrun with guns, mainly in the hands of criminals.

It's possible (likely I'd say) that he'll conclude that it is the "lax" gun laws in surrounding areas that are flooding the streets of Chicago with guns.

Of course if he does I wonder if he'd ask the obvious next question... why aren't those other areas as dangerous as Chicago? After all, if the guns are coming from these other areas then these other areas have just as much access (moreso in fact!) as the denizens of Chicago, so why are the streets of Chicago running red with blood while those other areas are not?

One could also ask the same question of Detroit and the suburbs (which have the SAME gun laws as it happens).
