Agree with the first sentence. Agree with the second half of the second sentence only if you're talking about high-performance snow tires, but they're not that great in a situation where you would otherwise be considering using chains. If you're on "true" snow/ice tires, you're bad weather performance is greatly enhanced and I'd agree with the first half of the second sentence, but dry and wet driving really do suffer.
