Two state representatives called on Gov. Pat Quinn Sunday to deploy the Illinois National Guard to safeguard Chicago's streets.

Chicago Democrats John Fritchey and LaShawn Ford said they want Quinn, Mayor Richard Daley and Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis to allow guardsmen to patrol streets and help quell violence. Weis said he did not support the idea because the military and police operate under different rules.

"Is this a drastic call to action? Of course it is," Fritchey said. "Is it warranted when we are losing residents to gun violence at such an alarming rate? Without question. We are not talking about rolling tanks down the street or having armed guards on each corner."

Or they could loosen up the gun laws and let the people not be sheep to the slaughter instead of using the Guard in a Posse Comitatus situation illegally as there seems to be no insurrection or invasion in Chicago at he moment.

If Chicago PD is unable or unwilling to handle the problem, put the power in the hands of the people. Guaranteed to fix the problem in six months time. Of course taking that power over their own lives back away from the people will be a huge problem.
