Going Nuclear in Chicago Has Light Consequences

Going Nuclear in Chicago Has  Light Consequences

Thanks to some busy researchers, it’s been found that setting off a nuclear weapon in Chicago has some pretty light consequences. According to Municipal Code of Chicago:

No person shall knowingly, within the City of Chicago, design, produce, deploy, launch, maintain, or store nuclear weapons or components of nuclear weapons.

And if you do:

Each violation of this ordinance shall be punishable by up to 30 days’ imprisonment and a $1,000.00 fine. Each day of violation shall be deemed a separate violation.

We suppose you would also be charged with a murder count for every person you killed — manslaughter if you set it off by accident. Of course, if there is no one left to indict you, or if you’re dead, too, there probably isn’t much point.
