Chicago’s been out of ideas for a long time. “More gun control!” Yawn. That’s so 1974. Apparently acknowledging that fact, they’re appealing to Chicagoans for advice on dealing with the city’s massive gun violence problem. “The city of Chicago is asking residents with ideas on how to solve the problem of illegal guns to share them – in 140 characters or less on Twitter. The initiative grew out of preparations for Chicago Ideas Week, an annual forum for innovators, artists, scientists and others to share ideas and inspire action. Those who think they know how to cut off the flow of illegal guns into Chicago’s streets are being asked to tweet them with the hashtag (hash)whatifchicago.” We’re sure they won’t mind a little input from non-residents, too, so what suggestion will you be tweeting to Hizzoner?
