Now the first book was published in 2000 And in a few of the books it was a point that his guns weren't exactly.... legal not just to carry but to even own.
(Not that the McDonald ruling wasn't until 2010). And now, as of last year, CCW is legal in Chicago.
How's that for history outpacing events in a book?
Though in fairness... I don't think Harry Dresden even has a FOID card...
