Eight people were shot to death, and thirty-nine of them were seriously injured. This all happened in the city with the strictest gun laws! Hmmm, I wonder why…
Reports like this come in after every weekend, yet Obama refuses to address the violence. Why is that? Most likely because it doesn’t fit his political anti-gun agenda.
From CBS Chicago:
Eight people were killed and at least 39 others were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday evening and Monday morning.
A 25-year-old man was driving a black SUV, stopped at a red light on Western Avenue at Division Street, when a dark-colored car pulled alongside his vehicle and someone inside opened fire, according to Chicago Police.
The rear driver’s side window of the SUV was shattered in the shooting and multiple bullet holes lined the driver’s side of the vehicle, an officer at the scene said. The SUV pulled forward and crashed into a traffic light in the northeast corner of the intersection.
The man was shot in the head, but three female passengers in the SUV were not injured, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Less than five minutes earlier, a man was shot to death in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the West Side.
Officers responding about 2:25 a.m. to a call of a person shot in the 3200 block of West Walnut found the man lying on the sidewalk, police said. The man, thought to be in his 30s, had suffered gunshot wounds to the head and back and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Cook County medical examiner’s office could not confirm either fatality early Monday.
Early Sunday, a man was killed and a woman injured when a birthday party attended by more than 100 people was interrupted by gunfire in the University Village neighborhood on the Near West Side.
This is horrific. By having the strictest gun laws, Chicago has made their citizens prey to the bloodthirsty criminals, who don’t obey the law anyway, and purchase guns illegally. There are steps we can take to improve gun safety from the mentally deranged, and still keep our second amendment right at the same time.
Gun’s, despite what liberals say, prevent violence from happening. Far more people are protected with guns than harmed by them, every year, guns are used over 80x more often to protect a life than to take one!
