“This young girl was killed by gang members. Yes, gang violence.”

You’re right on.

Instead of tackling crime the politicians instead want to ban guns.

Many of these street gangs in Chicago are just proxies for the Mexican drug cartels, and organized crime is getting their weapons from numerous sources including military stockpiles from the civil wars in Latin America not so long ago.

Imposing further restrictions on law-abiding citizens against their Second Amendment rights isn’t going to do anything to curb street gang/organized crime violence among rival factions fighting for drug turf.

Frankly, the U.S. probably could dramatically reduced gun violence much more efficiently by legalizing drugs rather than banning guns.

Quite so - in the same way the murder rate dropped when we legalized the drug alcohol.
