    Bad-Chicago has 7 shooting deaths in 24 hours

    Chicago had seven shooting deaths in 24 hours this weekend, and police say they have no suspects in custody.

    All seven victims were men in their 20s or 30s, and all were shot to death.

    The shootings occurred between 6:15 a.m. Saturday and just before 6 a.m. Sunday.

    One victim, 30-year-old Demond Stansbury, was shot along with two of his cousins, who survived and are in fair condition.

    The shootings spanned the city, happening on the North, South and West sides.

    Chicago Police spokesman Roderick Drew says investigations into the shootings are ongoing.

    On Saturday, police Superintendent Jody Weis spoke at an anti-violence march and rally on the West side.

    I thought Chicago was a Gun Free Zone??? Wait a minute I forgot, it is a gun free zone only for the law abiding citizens. For criminals it is a "Crime Spree Zone". The sad part is that there are no suspects for any of the shootings in custody.

    But I thought gun control legislation would fix all of that.

    Sounds like they need some more restrictions......Oh, yeah, they already don't allow their citizens (or subjects) to OWN a handgun. Looks like that's working out well for them.

    And we thought that "gun control" laws don't work. Only 7 gun deaths in a 24 hour period. That's like waaaaay down from what it was when people in Chicago could legally own a firearm.

    Sarcasm aside, this just goes to show that gun control doesn't work and never will.

    Obviously, they're not posting nearly enough "no forearms allowed" signs.

    That, and I blame Al Capone.

    It will take a lot more than this since many have had their American Spirit neutered long ago.

    There are some interesting comments to the Daily Herald article, BTW....

    Editorial: Concealed carry is right for Illinois

    Daily Herald | Concealed carry is right for Illinois

    Recent events have changed the way people must look at gun control. Last June the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in D.C. vs. Heller that the Second Amendment is indeed an individual right unconnected to any militia service; "and protects individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation". Thus the court has affirmed the right to keep and bear arms.

    Any restriction on a protected civil right must be questioned. Bearing arms for lawful purposes is just that, a protected right. Any regulation placing a prior restraint on the exercise of that right is unconstitutional. If citizens of Illinois want all gun sales to undergo a background check at the time of sale, then all the taxpayers of Illinois should bear the burden of this cost. Requiring a gun owner to pay for the exercise of an individual right is the equivalent of a poll tax.

    Under penalty of law you are required to wear a seat belt and have smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home for your own safety. But when it comes to responsible citizens providing for their own armed protection, Illinois law makes that a felony.

    Earlier this year the Wisconsin Attorney General made clear the fact that citizens of Wisconsin in the absence of a concealed carry law have the right to bear arms openly in public places for self-defense.

    With our neighbors to the north allowed the carry of arms for self-defense, that leaves Illinois the only state in this union without a lawful way for citizens to bear arms for self-defense in places other than their own property, concealed or otherwise.

    Illinois needs to reign in rogue local governments such as Chicago and Cook County by passing a firearms pre-emption law. Gun laws should be uniform throughout this state. Fundamental rights should not change because of urban/rural or political differences.

    It is time that Second Amendment rights are treated with the respect and reverence our system affords the First, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Amendments.

    The Chicago schools need to teach the fact that it is a crime to shoot and kill other people for no reason.
    Spending more money for education should help.

    Absolutely disgusting!
    One of the most gun restricted places in the U.S. and they still just don't get it.
    Watch for the politicians to scream for more gun laws.

    The story has been found to be bogus. All 7 were killed in Indiana and the bodies transported and dumped in Chicago to make the city look bad!
