Because of a lack of funds, Ceasefire is closing up two locations in Chicago:

City funding for the anti-violence group CeaseFire Illinois has run out in one gang-infested community on the West Side and will eventually in another on the South Side, putting employees out of work.

The one-year, $1 million contract was the first of its kind when it was forged last summer as Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy looked for unorthodox solutions as the number of homicides last year exceeded 500 for the first time in four years.

As Robb Allen notes, that mythical “ninety-percent” that support all of Barack Obama’s gun control agenda must be broke, cheapskates, or more likely, nonexistent.
