Also, but that's going to be *huge*, there must be shooting ranges, for
cyclists.

Who doesn't get shot in Chicago? I'd be surprised if a cyclist didn't get shot.

Chicago has among the most restrictive sets of anti-firearm
legislation in the country. How's that working out?

Well, as everyone knows, if you make a law against something people
will stop doing it.

There are many examples in U.S. history. The Volstead Act comes to
mind here as a particularly effective example of this.

This was very odd - most of the people of the world normally drank something alcoholic with dinner. To interfere with that only could have been attempted by some sort of insane congress.

As the so called Volstead act, involved the 18th amendment of the U.S.
constitution it required ratification by the states. The details of
the act wee as followed:

On August 1, 1917, the Senate passed a resolution containing the
language of the amendment to be presented to the states for
ratification. The vote was 65 to 20, with the Democrats voting 36 in
favor and 12 in opposition; and the Republicans voting 29 in favor and
8 in opposition. The House of Representatives passed a revised
resolution[7] on December 17, 1917.

In the House, the vote was 282 to 128, with the Democrats voting 141
in favor and 64 in opposition; and the Republicans voting 137 in favor
and 62 in opposition. Four Independents in the House voted in favor
and two Independents cast votes against the amendment.[9] It was
officially proposed by the Congress to the states when the Senate
passed the resolution, by a vote of 47 to 8, the next day.

When the act was offered to the states for ratification 46, of the
then 48 states, voted for the act.

It appears that, by a very wide margin, the U.S. demonstrated that
they DID NOT want a glass of wine with their supper.

Oh, if that were the end of it! The Volstead Act was bad
enough but it was merely statutory codification of the 18th
Amendment. The necessary 3/5 of State legislatures jumped on
that miserable bandwagon.

As well as you'd expect when it's within a few miles of a state with
super-lax gun laws.
