    Chicago is mostly gang-ridden, and gangs almost always obtain their guns illegally. And again, other states have very lax gun laws but low homicide rates. Look at Vermont, for starters.


Vermont is a slight outlier. If you look at all 50 states, there is a clear trend in which more guns = more gun deaths:






 Given as most of the guns are obtained illegally (Or in Chicago is due mostly to gang violence, gangs don't obtain their guns lawfully.). Also, suicides are the majority of gun deaths. Homicides are thirds after accidents. And again, it doesn't all have to do with the laws. California has tough gun laws but they still had  that big mass shooting not that long ago.
