The issue of gun violence in our nation, our city and our community has taken on a renewed sense of urgency in the last few weeks.
Twelve days ago, our nation was once again witness to yet another mass shooting, this time in San Bernardino, California. Here in Chicago, we were appalled at the police shooting of young Laquan McDonald, as recorded in a recently released police dash cam video.
And, of course, Rogers Park is by no means immune to gun violence. In the past two years, we’ve experienced a rash of shootings, almost all of which involved young men shooting other young men.
As we struggle for answers to the violence, I want to share with you links to several videos, in which the issue of gun violence is discussed and possible solutions raised.
