ABSTRACT
The article, the first of a three-part series on youth violence, focuses on the hundreds of young people who were murdered in Chicago, Illinois in 2009. The case of Derrion Albert, a 16-teen-year-old honors student who was beaten to death, is cited as one example. Efforts to ban firearms are discussed, but Chicago's ban on handguns, in effect since the early 1980s, has led to cheap pistols becoming widely available on streetcorners.
