HOST: [Chicago Mayor] Lori Lightfoot [D] has made statements saying that illegal guns are the problem in the city. What do you think?
ANTHONY NAPOLITANO: I think that’s pure nonsense. We have the strongest and the strictest gun laws in the state, if not the country.

“We have a state’s attorney who is by far the worst in the nation and it’s all a trickledown effect,” he concluded.
