I hope they keep it up. You can talk presidential elections, healthcare, immigration, Obummer's birthplace, Bain Capital, and all that, but Chicago is going to play very heavily this fall as it represents everything Obama, and it's a total failure.
Wait, the anti-gun laws aren't keeping the city safe? Who woulda thunk?
As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper
But, but, but--there shouldn't be any shootings in Chicago!!!! What about their restrictive anti-gun laws????? You mean to tell me people are breaking the law and actually have guns!!!! Oh my!!! I'm so surprised!!! NOT!

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Don't these guys know that it's illegal to shoot someone? Or kill someone? Or having a weapon in that "great" state of Illinois?
You know what they need? MOAR LAWS!!! That ought to do it.
checked the addresses....I lived on the Southside back in the day, and I would not go into any of the neighborhoods listed armed with anything less than a Humvee with a .50 mounted on the top. All these shootings are in the very deep "hood", and
in no way is representative of the entire city of Chicago.
This is thug shooting thug with a lot of innocents caught in the cross fire. No different than any other ghetto is the U.S., except its a whole lot bigger..... and will get worse long before it gets better.

Why do they rate a special place that is a S-hole? Because people for it.
More important, Chicago is the perfect example of where too many gun laws against lawful citizens only allows gang bangers and criminals to have guns, because the police will not go into the 'No Go' zones and enforce the laws.
Move along... Nothing to see here. Mayor Rahm, like his buddy in the White House, has everything under control.
Oh, and they'd appreciate your vote in November.

Same article now edited to 15 people shot as of 1:30 a.m. CDT ... and the hits just keep on coming. Still 28+ hrs. to go before Thurs. 6:00 a.m.
Gun Free Zones are totally effective, and 100% safe ... (wait for it) ... (wait for it) ... until a bad guy with a gun shows up! Then suddenly, you have an uncontested Kill Zone of defensless sheep, patiently awaiting their turn for the slaughter.
I guess gun laws are effective at keeping guns out of the hands...of VICTIMS!
