System Failure: More than Half of Weekend Gun Arrests already back on the Streets

(FOX) 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.

In total, shootings within city limits over Father’s Day weekend left at least six people dead and 22 others wounded.
