Chicago ranks last in prosecuting federal gun crimes: Report

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

A report from Syracuse University shows Chicago ranks dead last when it comes to prosecuting people for federal gun law violations.

Federal prosecutors in Chicago are challenging the report, claiming most gun cases here are left in county or state courts where offenders can get higher sentences.

NRA officials say it is further proof that law enforcement agencies need to start enforcing the laws already on the books before trying to pass new ones.
