This is impossible. Chicago has gun control. Can the authors be sure this isn’t about Huston, or even Burlington, VT where people don’t even need a permit to carry concealed handguns in public?

Those damn red states and their love of guns at it again!

When will they learn that the second amendment and their love only kills people and ban the damn things like the blue states do so we can stop all this death and carnage?

How’s that “No Gun Zone” working out for ya, Rahm?
Liberals will defend their talking points ‘til they’re all gone, can’t happen soon enough! Common sense will win, in the end.

It would be safer to walk across Afghanistan naked without food or water screaming hatred for the taliban and mooselimbs.

Headline says “across the city.” Well, yes. But we who know the city understand that all incidents took place in minority neighborhoods, Black and one (Logan Square)Hispanic.

I notice that a racial description is omitted for both the victims and the savages that attacked them. Is that because such a description is redundant?

BTW, I do have a solution in mind for Chicago to solve this problem. They need to institute strict gun control: hand out free guns to all sober and law-abiding citizens that want one and train them in self-defense.

Meh, this is just black people killing black people. Not a media narrative the press would be interested in spending much time with. This coverage of this carnage will remain local and the focus will be on how terrible guns are.

Is Chicago turning into a war zone?

Seems like there have been many stories about gun violence in Chicago lately.

Oh, I guess that’s because of the sterling job being done by Rahmbo.

Friendly reminder. its not “gun violence”. Its just violence. The tool used does not matter. The phrase “gun violence” is used by the left all the time.

families and kids will start buying and walking around with
bullet proof vests helmets and backpacks provided free of charge by taxpayers and homes will be designed with steel walls.

each students desk will be encased with a bulletproof glass to provide safety from school shootings.

then all employers will provide bulletproof encasement to all cubicles.

this will all be paid for by big gun taxes.

According to the media: there are hundreds or thousands of illegal guns marauding about the City of Chicago (and Cook County) wantonly shooting and wounding (or killing) boatloads of people. The reason, implied but not stated, is these guns exert a perverse spell upon a majority of “Holder's people” to carry out these dastardly deeds.

We are supposed to believe that without all these EVIL marauding guns casting spells on innocents (that is, “Holder's people”) there would be peace and tranquility in Chicago and Cook Country. Right! (Where's the barf bag, Rahm?)
