Surprises in Chicago's 'most dangerous neighborhoods' news story. The NRA Illinois Lobbyist Todd Vadermyde joins Cam Edwards by phone to respond to a recent Chicago news article that references a study showing that Chicago houses four of the top 25 most dangerous U.S. neighborhoods. According to the article, residents who live near 55th and State have a one in four chance of being a victim of violent crime each year, despite the fact that Illinois has (or perhaps because Illinois has) some of the strictest gun laws in the country.
