Ke'Shon Newman's daily routine is guided by guns – the hundreds of illegal pistols, revolvers and other firearms that torment his South Side neighborhood.It was a triumphant moment, but it also offered a glimpse into the overwhelming task faced by law enforcement – and the wounds inflicted on just one Chicago community – when guns are readily available and violence so common that, one study found, an estimated 1 in 2 young men had at some time carried firearms, almost always illegally.The department's 6th District, one of 22 in all, leads the city in guns recovered, accounting for almost 15 percent so far in 2018 .The community has rallied to rid itself of guns.By December, the 6th District had recovered more than 1,200 guns.
