In response to the question, are gun rights groups somehow corrupting public safety, McCarthy had this to say, "Well, how is it that they're controlling politicians. How are they controlling elected officials? It's not by popular vote."In his world, Chicago is the only place that exists and those other 9 million people and 57,000 square miles of land outside the city limits don't exist. It's all about what goes on in his little district is what's reality.
This is how detached the leadership of Chicago is from the rest of the world. Not only do they have no clue what's going on in the rest of the world but they don't even recognize (or comprehend) the political process that runs most of the rest of the country.
