At least 35 people were shot in Chicago, four of them fatally, in 36 hours over the weekend, with more than half of the shootings occurring over a half-day period stretching into early Sunday.

Officers responded to at least 26 incidents, starting at 3:30 p.m. Friday in the West Woodlawn neighborhood on the South Side involving an attack that left a 17-year-old girl dead and two other people wounded, police said. There were also fatal shootings in the South Shore neighborhood Friday night and the Washington Park neighborhood early Sunday, both on the South Side.

"we continue to be challenged by lax state and federal gun laws..."

I'm in the mood for pancakes on the head of a rabbit. Can someone post it?

It sounds like Chicagoans need more range time.

Yeah, with kill rate of 4/35, a range time is definitely needed for Holder’s people.

“While the city continues to see reductions in crime and violence, there's obviously much more to be done, and we continue to be challenged by lax state and federal gun laws,” Collins said...

In other words, relaxing the laws is actually working at reducing crime and violence, but gun grabbing fascists are still facing challenges.

I believe overall the death rate (approximate) for handgun wounds is something like 1 in 7. This 1 in nearly 9 definitely indicates a lack of skill... Or maybe just a small statistical aberration. I'm sure Chicago criminals will increase the sample size shortly.

cops shouldn't waste one more minute of their time or another penny of taxpayer money on anybody shot not of tender years or over 65 unless and until these chickenheads ACTIVELY HELP CATCH THE SHOOTERS!!!

this stop snitchin but still bitchin about guns is nothing more than a ghetto joke and waste of time/effort/resources that could be used elsewhere

The ferocious cold of Chicago’s winter is over. Time for the President’s sons to emerge from their lairs and resume doing what they do.

I noticed that Obama made a statement regarding the shooting today in Kansas where 3 people were killed did he also make mention of the Chicago shootings?

There is no political gain in mentioning Gakirah and/or Tyquan for the Dems.

Lax federal & state laws? Illinois and Chicago have very strict anti-gun laws which are followed by the vast majority of its residents who follow laws, pay taxes, raise healthy families and go to church to hear the word of God.

What the Chicago & his master the mayor won’t admit is the gun problem is a people problem, too many thugs, mugs, crazies and feral youths who commit deadly violence. Such bad people are lawless - printed laws mean nothing to them.

When SHTF, trained gun owners will have little to fear from the starving youth mobs.

A repeat of a story: years ago there was a debate between Jessie Jackson and Orin Hatch on gun control—Jesse for it, Orin against it. Jesse ranted on about the need for gun control, but never stating the obvious. After a five minute rant, Orin said: “If we remove the killings performed by black males between the ages of 17 and 30, the US would have a lower murder rate than Switzerland.”

Jesse looked like a deer in the headlights...crickets...

Note the race and the causes. Why aren't other cities like this?

and yet, Apr 10, 2014, "“The City of Chicago is thrilled to take the second spot on TripAdvisor's Top U.S. Destination in their annual Traveler’s Choice Destination Awards." - Rahm Emmanuel press release

Rahm dreams of 55 million annual visitors to Chicago by 2020 - to a city that's shooting itself to death. Now that's what I call a reality-disconnect.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think Obama has EVER mentioned Chicago violence directly, or visited the Chicago ghettos, or talked to the victims there.

He’s been in power for freaking 5 1/2 years now, and not once does he show concern for his “hometown” or its people.

And not a peep from the cheerleading media either. Does anyone in Chicago notice this??

Chicago gangster rappers refer to Chicago as Chiraq, (it's not a homage to the former French politician Jacques Chirac ), but a mashup of Chicago and Iraq.

You would think Obunghole would want to visit his pal, Rahm Emanuel and say "Good job, Rahmie".

Just getting tuned-up; they’re a little ‘rusty’ from the winter layoff. Have faith. They’ll get their ‘groove’ back...

Yep - and that “spousal person” of his issues not a peep about it, instead choosing to blather on inanely about vegies and “Let’s Move”.

He is a fraud and does not care about people. There is something off about him.
