Chicago has a very real and very terrible gun violence problem.
Just this year, 176 people have been killed in the city, and the vast majority are shooting deaths. So any gun that police get off the streets there is a good thing.

Despite their tweets rife with mocking disdain, the good people of Twitter dot com are surely happy police are keeping the streets safe.
