I have a co-worker who is from Chicago (as is his wife) and he has asked me about guns. He knows I own some and he is interested in purchasing his first gun.
When I first met him, i assumed he was an anti and possibly quite Liberal but it turns out he is very pro-gun and not at all a Lib. In fact, he doesn't think he could ever move back to Chicago even though his entire family still lives there.
It's funny listening to him tell me that the way things run in Chicago seemed normal because that is all he knew until he moved away from it and saw that the rest of the Country runs much better and with no corruption, at least in comparison to Chicago and the state of Illinois as a whole.
