Chicago police are calling for increased gun controls after another
deadly Fourth of July weekend saw 65 people shot, 10 of them fatally. A
7-year-old boy was among the dead. At one point, police said they were
confiscating an illegal firearm every hour.
Thirty people were shot across Chicago from dusk on Saturday
until dawn on Sunday, after Independence Day celebrations. One of
them was Amari Brown, seven, killed in his front yard late
Saturday night in the Humboldt Park neighborhood.
