Ray Lewis addressed gun violence in Baltimore in front of lawmakers Friday. 

In 2017, there have been 58 homicides, many from gun violence. Lewis wants to find a solution. 

He says guns are too accessible and it's putting out children in danger. 

"Gang life starts at 9 years old," he said. "So if we're not getting our babies coming out kindergarten, almost then we're losing them immediately to be desensitized to what it feels like to pull a trigger and take another man's life."

"Gunbail" is only available to non-violent offenders, but Lewi says it could help get more guns off the street.
