In this Feb. 7, 2013 photo, Anthony Beale, a Democratic hopeful for Illinois' 2nd District seat, speaks at a news conference in Chicago. Beale is one of more than a dozen candidates running in a special primary election Feb. 26 to replace former Congressman Jesse Jackson Jr. who resigned in November 2012. Like much of the national conversation these days, the race to replace Jackson in 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)
