Two years after her initial report, Ginny tells us that very little has changed in Chicago, and Independence Day 2015 was no exception. It was another deadly weekend — 55 people shot and 10 killed — and among the victims was a 7-year-old boy whose life was cut short by a bullet that was meant for his father, a ranking gang member who has been arrested 45 times.

While politicians continue to push for tougher gun laws, more innocent lives are tragically lost. Yet Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel continues to ask "Where are the gun laws?" Ginny Simone speaks with gang members and retired police officers who say that criminal control is what is needed, not gun control.
