Confirmed: Spike Lee Movie “Chiraq” Will Push Gun Control

posted on September 15, 2015

Spike Lee’s upcoming feature film “Chiraq”—which is set in Chicago and focuses on the gang violence, shootings and murders that allegedly make that city more dangerous than wartime Iraq—will reportedly examine the debate on gun laws in the United States. 

In discussing the film, the first movie to be fully funded by Amazon Studios, Lee said, “Guns are out of control here in America. There has to be some gun reform, and that is going to be a fight because you have to go up against the NRA ...”

As we’ve pointed out, however, Chicago has some of the toughest anti-gun laws in the nation (including, until recently, a ban on handguns). Furthermore, federal, state and local prosecutors refuse to enforce existing gun laws against the repeat offenders who’ve turned Chicago into a war zone. So what’s the point of more laws that will only disarm more victims?
