The city of Chicago typically leads the nations in shooting and gun related homicides. This year the city has had about 300 people killed and more than 1700 wounded by gunfire. On June 1, a task force was formed by the Chicago police, Illinois state police and the ATF to combat the gun violence in the city. ATF has formed similar task forces on a temporary basis to fight regional spikes in gun violence. Chicago’s task force is the only one in the nation formed with the idea to be permanent.
