Mayor Tom Barrett says state leaders must help address the the city's gun violence. Milwaukee’s homicide rate is running 160 percent ahead of last April.
He criticizes people who lose control of their emotions and pull the trigger and new state laws that allow more people to possess guns.
“You’ve got this horrible combination, this toxic formula of lack of control and let's just flood these streets with more guns. Let’s just flood these streets with more guns, and this is what you get, as a result,” Barrett says.
