The Wisconsin Anti-Violence Effort says about 450 people were killed in Wisconsin last year because of guns.
"This is a slap in the face to those of us who have lost children to gun violence," said Annette Nance-Holt [of Chicago, murder capitol], mother of a gunshot victim.
In April, Twanda Thompson of Madison, her son, and two nieces were murdered in Chicago. And the violence there continues -- 52 people were shot -- eight killed-- over Father's Day weekend.
Said Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley, "Common sense tells you we need fewer guns on the street, not more guns."
