19 Shot in Chicago, Anti-2A Haven

Chicago is known for its incredibly restrictive firearms laws.  Why didn’t the victims simply hold up a copy of the city statutes in defense of their lives?  Surely the shooters would have realized that they were in a “gun-free” zone and been on their merry way to conduct their crime somewhere guns are allowed.  Right?

Nineteen people were shot across the South and West sides from Thursday evening through early Friday morning — 13 of them wounded over a 30-minute period, authorities say.
