Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review, Oct. 2

Joel Weisman and his panel of guests discuss the issue of gun violence and a new push for tighter gun laws in light of Chicago's deadliest week since September 2002.

Other top stories the panel will address: The impact of recent cuts by Chicago Public Schools to special education; the Cubs momentum as the team heads into the playoffs; and the 0-3 Bears, who host the Oakland Raiders this weekend after trading two veterans. Also, Derrick Rose is injured again and says he is innocent in civil rape case.
