    That "liar liar pants on fire" bit told all of us (well most of us) you must be an old fart. Old farts know stuff.

    So what were the true facts of this story? How many were SD shoots? How many that were shot were criminals who like as not had it coming? Nine dead out of 45 shot tells me Chicagoans need a lot more range time.

    I'll not be reading the so called news story cuz flat out I could care less what goes on in Chicago.

    Again trying to use guns laws to fix a problem that isn't impacted by them. How about actually putting the scumbags in prison for a long time and handling things with the laws on the books.

    But something like this makes sense and requires them to admit that gun laws aren't the problem.

    Ronald Holt, the commander of the Chicago police department’s special activities division, said that the city was witnessing “fratricide” among young men who had come to believe “that the only way to resolve a conflict is to get a gun and go shoot to kill”.

    Two things:
    Obviously the Chief stills fails to see the cause of the problem and insists on treating only the symptoms.
    Two: The editor of this article failed to learn that periods go inside quotation marks.

    “It would do the rap and hip-hop industry some good if gang violence was denounced and acknowledged as being a part of the problem,” said Holt. “Never before in the history of any American music genre have we associated murder and pistol-play with such consistency as we have witnessed in the rap and hip-hop world of music.”

    Might be easier to ban this sort of "music." Make them all listen to country music and the world will be a better place. Just a Southern boy's take on this.

    Making people listen to country music rather than rap might decrease murders, but it would increase suicides...

    Get a list of "gun free zones" and you won't be far off.

    Most of the shootings are happening in the south and west sides and in poorer gang and drug neighborhoods. Really has nothing to do with gun free zones unless they happen in a park!
