At least 11 people, including a 13-year-old boy, were wounded in shootings across the city over a hot and steamy night, according to Chicago police reports.

Those shootings beginning Sunday evening added to a weekend violence toll that earlier included at least two deaths and 11 woundings by gunshot.

As Rachel Maddow said a couple of years ago about the wonders of San Francisco “This is what happens when liberals run things. So why are Conservatives afraid?” As long as people with similar beliefs to Maddow are in power, this will never stop.

IL is the ONLY state that doesn't allow concealed carry. Gun violence and crime in Chicago is through the roof. When concealed carry finally comes, and it will, lots of perps will have a rude awakening.

“No arrests were made in any of the shootings.”

There’s a shocker! {sarc}

After reading the article it sounds like the most popular weapon in Chicago is a BB gun.

Well, the liberal excuse is the legacy of slavery and discrimination. Plus, due to lack of jobs, people in the ghetto commit crimes because they have no food or money. At least that’s what I’ve heard some liberals say, to excuse the violence among ghetto dwellers.

Why are liberals never held responsible for the failures of the war on poverty? Almost 50 years later, and trillions of dollars spent on various anti-poverty programs, and the problems of the ghetto are worse than ever.

It’s a good thing guns are banned in Chicago otherwise we would be witnessing a blood bath! Oh, wait...

“The wonders of San Francisco” are overrated. In the event you may be a stranger to Northern California, SF is a toilet, filthy and disorganized.

It costs money everywhere you turn, from the bridge tolls entering the city, to outrageous parking fees, and overpriced restaurants, hotels and entertainment venues.

I have made it a practice of many years to avoid going south over the GG Bridge or west on the Bay Bridge. If you want to see SF, see it from Sausalito, and go no closer.

I’m going to personally man the Chicago containment wall, because I’m tolerant and I like heavy machineguns, especially because I like MGs.

How could this be?

I thought Chicago had these stringent gun regulations that kept people safe!

Gee, it’s pretty warm down here where I live in Alabama.
Maybe I missed it on the local news about all the shootings here because it was a “steamy” night. /s

“Part of me badly wants to hear about a flash mob in Hyde Park.”

All of me wants to see it.

Only the best for michelle antoinette, she who would be queen, and her husband who appears queer.

Wow. This is really, really bad. I read the headline and said to myself as I clicked the link, “Chicago.”

I think that this report is probably inaccurate. No one, other than Police, are allowed to own guns in Chicago.

Well, maybe those people with guns were really police, you know the undercover kind. It is really hard to tell the good guys from the bad guys in Chicago. Maybe they should have uniforms: blue suits with checkered hats for police and bandanas tied around their heads with blue/black tattoos for the bad guys and Democratic National Committee badges for the really bad guys!

How about scarff-ring carry?

Tripod carry?

Maybe trailed carry -- behind a 6x6?

Or better still, triaxially-stabilized quad carry.

<small voice> "I want that one!" </off voice>
