My 2 cents...
You can't blame the "Rank and File" officers. The crime statistics are cooked by the upper echelon and City Hall. Their current Stuporintendent is some *****hat Daley got from New York who had a habit of getting plowed and shooting out street lights back home.
Most Chicago police officers would like CCW, let alone having guns in the home for self defense.
