AMERICAN POLITICS - Gun Control Chicago Style

"How Mayor-Elect Lori Lightfoot plans to address Chicago’s gun violence ‘epidemic’" PBS NewsHour 4/3/2019


SUMMARY:  Democrat Lori Lightfoot was elected mayor of Chicago Tuesday, in a landslide victory that represented several historic milestones.  Lightfoot, who is openly gay, will be the first black woman to lead the city.  A relative outsider to Chicago’s political scene, she interprets her triumph as a "mandate for change" from its people.  Lisa Desjardins talks to the mayor-elect about what comes next.
