The gun violence in Chicago is getting worse as there were 58 shootings in just three days last weekend.  

According to CNN, “ there was a group of friends that had just gathered after a game and were standing near 74th street and Dante Avenue when a man inside a black van suddenly showed up and starting firing at the group.”

Chicago has very strict gun laws, but these laws have pushed people to have more guns illegally. Every weekend in Chicago is a dangerous one for youths and adults if they are out walking or hanging out in the streets. According to Fox News, Chicago’s homicide rate went down in 2017 but has started to increase with three homicides to start 2018. Now there are more shootings in a weekend than there was in the beginning of 2018.

As the battle for gun control rages on, gun violence is becoming an increasing problem not only for Chicago, but also for other cities as well.
