"Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin delivered a letter to the governor's office asking him to declare a state of emergency," reported abc7chicago.com.
Barack Obama blamed Indiana gun dealers for the crisis; though stopped short of explaining why gun violence was low in most of Indiana.
Boykin says that will provide access to federal money and resources.
"People are living under terror. That is unfair, that is not the American way. This is not what we would expect from our government. How can we defeat ISIS abroad if we can't even defeat the gang members in our neighborhoods?" Boykin said.
In a statement, Rauner's office said he's troubled by gun violence, adding that "unfortunately, there is no federal assistance available" if the governor proclaimed a state of emergency. — abc7chicago.com
Violent crime across the nation increased after riots in Baltimore, Md. and Ferguson, Mo. compelled authorities to call on law enforcement to stand down.
