Chicago police: Half of all weekend gun arrestees already back on streets

"Guns from Indiana," one of fall guys for Chicago's gun violence, doesn't figure into a real problem.

From Fox Chicago:
Chicago police say they took 56 illegal guns off city streets between Friday and Sunday and 22 people were arrested.

The weekend before that, there were 53 weapons arrests. A police spokesman says more than half of those 53 arrested have already been released on bond.

Despite the efforts, gun violence across Chicago from 5 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday claimed the lives of several people, including a teen shot to death Saturday in Englewood.
