The problem is that it is as difficult to get guns away from these gangs as it is to take away their drugs. Not surprisingly the solution, in a city that already bans guns, is more gun control
for the rest of the state and the nation:
Chicago police Superintendent Jody Weis said all but three of the 26 shootings were gang-related.
Seven victims were juveniles, five of whom were out after the city curfew of 11 p.m. So he's also asking parents to be more vigilant about where their children are after hours.
Weis also supports Mayor Daley in his call for tougher legislation that will make it more difficult to get and own guns.
"You just have too many guns and too many gangs, and too much drugs on the street," Weis said. "There's just too many weapons out here." . . .
