    How long before Chicagoans can be armed to protect themselves against this?

    19 and 14 year old team up for the 14 year old's gang initiation... 19 year old on probation for felony cocaine-related conviction.

    They shoot a man putting his child into a car seat... 6 times. The 19 year old admits to it, leads the police to the gun used in the attack! What? It's okay to shoot him 'cause you thought he was a Satan's Disciple?



    Story here

    Mayors Against Illegal Guns need to get with the program and insist that gun crime gets punished to the fullest extent of the law... And quit blaming the gun. Start keeping these thugs in prison... no probation, no early release...

    Hey, Rahm! How're your gun control measures working for you?

    As much as I hate to say it, I don't think there's really much he'd be able to do to defend himself in this situation. Sure, maybe he'd be able to get a couple shots off at the BG, but he'd still be in the hospital with the same holes.

    I'm okay with that. If I'm getting shot, the very least I can do is shoot the guy who's shooting me.

    Find me in a pile of brass.

    the best response i've ever heard came from a DC member whose name i don't remember:

    "Has any victim of a violent assault ever said afterwards, 'Boy, I'm sure glad I didn't have a gun.'?"

    Unfortunately, this shooting statistic will go down in the books as yet another reason why you or I shouldn't have guns.

    Oh hey, I was just wondering if anyone knew how this guy's background check went? Anyone know?

    Sotelo is on probation for a felony cocaine-related conviction, Kent said. He also has two findings of delinquency as a juvenile for a 2007 robbery and a 2009 aggravated battery.

    I don't think Rahm or the other Dems in power give a flip. As long as the freebie lovers keep voting them in...It's all good.
