Mayor Richard Daley reacted coolly Monday to a suggestion the National Guard be called in to help slow the violence on Chicago's streets, suggesting the idea offered up a day earlier by two state representatives was too simplistic.
"You have to look at long-term solutions," Daley said, adding he understood the "frustration" expressed by the legislators.
The mayor also sounded his familiar theme of needing more gun control laws and suggested Fritchey and Ford back him in those efforts.
"This is all about guns, and that's why the crusade is on," Daley said. "We hope to get their cooperation in Springfield."
And you're about to be on the losing side of history Dick. Stop wasting taxpayer money - you're already broke, or so you claim.
