    I kind of love checking, at the end of every weekend where Chicago is on Firearms woundings/deaths................. Just because I personally love how well Progresive Liberal Gun Control works............

    But..............

    But..............

    Wierd................. the Chicago Tribune is not reporting (or making the normal elevation of) gun shot crimes....

    What happened? Darned, we had a betting spread (not for cash) on this........

    I can see why they'd quit reporting it.

    If you do not report it it does not happen, correct?

    Oxymoron, isn't it? "BG gun crimes," when ostensibly all uses of firearms are criminal, since the little suckers are bad tools?

    Of course, there are plenty of news items out there on all sorts of incidents in Chicago, including shootings. On average, there are a couple of shootings a day there, with some days logging far more than that. (ie, SpotCrime map)

    A simple Google/News search shows plenty of reporting, though it's hard to know whether all such incidents ever make it to the news.

    I visited an aunt and uncle in Chicago when I was 5 years old. That was over 50 years ago and I haven't been back. As far as I'm concerned Chicago could just disappear and I wouldn't be upset. They made this mess and they can live with it.

    I do like the Cubs though.

    Well we know that for years, a lot of the news media would refuse to air reports of defensive gun use (and still do). Nothing new about the news media printing what they think is important.
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.

    I agree. If it fits their agenda they report it. If it doesn't fit, no report. It's so maddening.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Yep, that sums it up pretty accurately.

    Maybe they stopped reporting it because they are afraid of the new "IL has 180 days to write a new CC law" ruling. They don't want to encourage legislators to let more peaceful people carry without restrictions so they can protect themselves from all the IL BGs already carrying.

    I don't know if they've stopped or not, the OP's link just leads to all the "breaking news" in Chicagoland. I do visit The Redeye Which is a record of homicides in Chicagoland and they haven't listed any since the 9th... Maybe they are quitting the redeye reporting...

    That would be a shame. They've done it for quite a few years.
    Rats!
    It could be worse!
    I suppose
