For their effort, they (group) will also announce Bi-Weekly initiatives to challenge the NRA, Chucks, The Illinois Riffle Association and the negative culture of the Chicago Violence, in addition to the ongoing campaign of belief that the integrity of the black and anti violence communities are being threatened by the violence, bad gun policy and that ongoing and progressive solutions must be sought.
