It will never make the streets safe. Jobs , jobs and more jobs will help some. Education that gives more people incentive to stay in school. Cracking down on gangs and breaking the power struggle between the gangs and law enforcement will help. Taking weapons away from law abiding citizens and taking our rights away from us to protect ourselves and our families is not the answer it is really stupid . There will always be guns everywhere. There were guns everywhere during the Revolutionary war, why would it be different now ? There are more guns now than back then. There will always be criminals and there will always be illegal guns . I for one want and demand my right as a law abiding citizen to protect myself and my family against the criminals and the illegal guns.
