Proposed Laws Target Gangs

It turns out gangbangers are a lot like cockroaches. They don't like the light of day. Lawmakers are hoping some new laws will have them scurrying out of sight.

Republican leaders are proposing eleven new laws this fall that would allow police to arrest gangsters who try to recruit new members under the age of 18. The law would also prohibit gang members from contacting each other after getting out of prison. Lawmakers hope these new measures will make criminals nervous.
