December 17, 2012 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- A call for action against gun violence was made at Rainbow PUSH in Chicago Monday evening.
The vigil, which came in the wake of a massacre Friday at a Connecticut elementary school, was made in the memory of the young people killed by gun violence in Chicago this year.
The chapel at the Rainbow PUSH Coalition headquarters was crowded with people who came to pray for the victims of the Newtown shooting and demand that their elected officials take action to prevent any further gun violence.
"Congress should revive the ban on assault weapons. Number 2, universal background checks. Number 3, stop conceal and carry," said Rev. Jesse Jackson of Rainbow PUSH.
Congressman Bobby Rush said he plans to jump into the gun control debate and reintroduce a bill that would require all guns to have identification numbers similar to vehicles.
He also says that the 20 children and 6 adults who were killed will be honored with a moment of silence in the chamber of the house floor.
"A moment of silence is appropriate," said Rush. "But also, a moment... or hours or days or weeks of debate is also appropriate."

Who is going to hold a vigil for all the Rainbow PUSH victims?
Who is going to hold a vigil for all the Rainbow PUSH victims?”
...ACORN of course. Ya silly.
Any one of these mass shootings is like a Chicago week end. Except instead of stretching it out over three days, the majority of the incidents occur on one particular day.
One can only hope that one of these days, some of Jesse’s feral followers are going to wake up and realize that the conditions that they live in are because of Jesse and his friends. Jesse and the rest of the pimps NEED to keep the status quo in order to keep their game going.
Jesse and the pimps don’t care about the true believers, they care about Jesse and the pimps. Someday, somebody’s going to wake up and realize that they’ve been played by Jesse and Bobby and Barack and company.
In the meantime, blame the guns.
When are JJ an Twinkle bell going to to the South Side to convince their supporters to relinquish their pieces?
Trying to stay relevant.
Congress should revive the ban on assault weapons. Number 2, universal background checks. Number 3, stop conceal and carry,” said Rev. Jesse Jackson of Rainbow PUSH. “
Because all those black dudes in the inner city you avoid living with will be so deterred by a bunch of crackas and their little laws, right.
How about we make sure you don’t have any bodyguards with them first, ok?
They already do. They are called serial numbers.
Jesse Jackson smells money
It is truly frightening that people like that are voted into office.
Nobody with an IQ above 30 pays attention to thugs and mooching fakirs unless they become a threat. Now run along and give a high-five to your Chicago gang-banger savages.
