The issue of gun control will be a top priority at the state capitol. Chicago City Council members and city officials boarded buses for Springfield Wednesday morning.

They are going to lobby state legislators for tougher gun control laws.

This has been a particularly violent year for Chicago Public Schools. More than 20 Chicago Public Schools students have died as a result of violence this school year.
