AA Rayner Interview with PBS Chicago

WYCC PBS Chicago brings an in-depth look into the challenges of repeat gun offenders, ways to fight crime, and how communities are working to keep people safe. After a sickening spike in violence that included more than 4,000 shootings and 760 homicides last year, legislation to get tough on gun felons is pending at the state capitol. But whether a crackdown on repeat offenders is the right way to fight crime remains a matter of fierce debate. Joining host Chris Bury to discuss the push for tougher gun offender laws are Chicago, Illinois 15th Ward Alderman Raymond Lopez, Stephanie Kollmann, Policy Director of the Children and Family Justice Center at Northwestern University-Northwestern Law and Shibani Mahtani, crime reporter for The Wall Street Journal.
