Guns dominate race to replace Jesse Jackson Jr.

In this Feb. 7, 2013 photo, from left Gail Mahome, Dr. Willie Wilson and Dr. John Gray, smile at a news conference in Chicago, as they join other members of the International Ministers & Community Alliance in endorsing Robin Kelly, center, a former Illinois state representative and Democratic hopeful running in a special primary election Feb. 26 for Illinois' 2nd District seat to replace Jesse Jackson Jr. who resigned in November 2012. Like much of the national conversation these days, the race to replace Jackson Congress has been dominated by one topic: guns. Nearly half of 2nd District voters live on the South Side of Chicago, where some of the nation’s worst gun violence has been heavily concentrated. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)
