Description

"The Gunrunners" revealed how thousands of handguns purchased legally in Chicago's suburbs end up in the hands of gang members and felons in the city, where possession of handguns is illegal. The practice makes a mockery of Chicago's gun control laws. The story documented that suburban gun stores were the primary source of weapons for Chicago gangs.
