The problem with the word "Gangs" is that it applies to so many different Criminal Elements i.e. street gangs, biker gangs, gangs of thugs etc. The law can't out-law thw word "Gangs" but the police watch these gangs very closely. There are some very legit Biker Gangs that are formed by Lawyers, doctors, vets, accountants, paint guy at Home Hardware, fishermen etc. These gangs have rides for charity functions and worthy causes. There the ones you see with Teddy Bears on the back of their bikes.
