(CBS News) CHICAGO - There is a war going on -- not overseas, but right here on the streets of America. A gang war has taken over parts of Chicago.

So far this year, there have been more than 2,364 shootings and 487 homicides.

"When you have them coming out of school, and there's any kind of gang conflicts, you've got a mix like fire and gasoline," Schmitz said.

It's all those white middle class types with their AR15s going at it again I guess.

I’m sure we can rest assured none of those were committed by hussein’s sons. Frankly, I don’t believe any of these ever happened because Senator Present must have cleaned his town up thus proving himself to clean up the nation.
More than 100 children have been murdered in Chicago..where they have the most strict gun control..not a peep from the media yet they claim to care about the children
Hey I know, lets ban the guns least frequently used and punish the people least frequently responible because that will surely solve the problem.
they've made the beaches and parks in some areas totally uninhabitable....
The left wants total disarmament and the total destruction of the 2nd amendment..they could give a rats ass about the kids
what? Leftists love kids, that’s why they rip them to pieces in their momma’s womb by the millions. Because they live them that much.
My wife and I were going to go to Hermann Park a few months back. Drove around it and saw one white woman. I thought I might feel out of place. Is that racist?
All these kids getting killed in Chicago and obama has not hauled his presidential podium with the presidential seal to a memorial service up there one damn time.
Given that the Chicago way now rules the nation, I can’t imagine that it will be long before the rest of the nation looks a lot more like this.
