Daley to hold gun conference, conduct search for Duncan successor
Posted by Carlos Sadovi at 11:15 a.m.

Mayor Richard Daley said today that Chicago will host a "gun conference" next month to look for ways to beef up gun laws and get guns off the streets.

The mayor said he would bring in leaders from across the country and people who have lost loved ones to gun violence. He said the attendees plan to review recent Supreme Court decisions that limited how cities can regulate guns.

"I believe the court's ruling presents us with an opportunity to continue our efforts," Daley said.

Daley also announced that Arne Duncan, chosen by President-elect Barack Obama as his U.S. Education Secretary, will not leave Chicago Public Schools until Obama is sworn in Jan. 20. The mayor offered little about finding Duncan's replacement, but said the search would include people inside and outside the district.

Barbara Eason-Watkins, a top Duncan aide, is considered a strong internal contender for Duncan's job.

The mayor spoke alongside Duncan at DuSable High School, 4934 S. Wabash, where they announced funding for student-led peace projects at city high schools.

Martian traitors?

"Can't we all just get along?" I mean that with the least most sincerety. The sheople hve spoken, too bad they drag us along with them. I have little hope things are going to get better on our current path that we are being hauled kicking and screaming down.

Christmas man,

It's Christmas, I don't like using the X-thing. Christ is the reason for the season. Nothing out of "Stinky River" surprises me, look who they sent us as our new savior and redeemer. As samD says, "The new messiah" has spoken, he will lead us. Change, we can! Lets hope it's only four years. All those yankee states make me sick.

my take

the mayor will meet with actavists, speeches will be made, hands will be held, babies will be kissed, Then they will announce Chicago got the 2016 Olympics and all gun talk will dissapear, also Mayor Daley will get a big campaign contribution from all the gun shop[s getting rich over a rumor and all will be well in Ebear's world.I will get a Smith AND Wesson 357 magnum to celebrate, my wife will leave me and i will sell oranges to Martians on the polar express.
