Gun Summit in Gary Targets Many Issues

Share this post

Law enforcement and other officials from Indiana and Illinois attended a "Gun Trafficking Suppression Summit" in Gary Thursday afternoon. Authorities say gun shows were one of the main topics -- and so-called "straw purchasers", people who buy guns there then resell them to criminals. Lake County, Indiana, Sheriff John Buncich said problems in Cook County and the city of Chicago are "bleeding over" into Lake County, and vice versa, and "that's why law enforcement and everybody, the community as a whole, is going to have to come together to work out these issues in the future".
