Series Description
"Now in its fifth year, the Chicago Matters project, a collaborative effort of WTTW, The Chicago Community Trust, and WBEZ radio, grapples with a hot topic that is on the minds of people everywhere--violence. The four programs in the series all address a different aspect of violence, concentrating on rehabilitation, understanding and weapon control ... GUNS UNDER FIRE examines the fact that almost 46% of all households in America have at least one gun. Weapon owners and law-abiding residents of high crime Chicago neighborhoods come together to give their view of gun control"--excerpts from 1994 Peabody Awards entry form.
