I think I heard that Brian Williams from ABC News was responsible for these shootings.
Wait maybe it was a different Brian Williams.
Unpossible. Guns are illegal in Chicago.
The daily carnage in Chicago will get one one-trillionth of the media coverage of the movie theater killings.
Did you mean Brian Ross? Brian Williams is with NBC.
Any description of the shooters?
Brilliant PHD students?
Or maybe they were bullied in high school?
Chicago needs Bloomberg...and I bet the residents of NYC would let them have him.
It’s a shame Colorado doesn’t have Chicago’s strict gun laws.
Yeah, but The Rahmfather says overall crime is down, so we have THAT going for us. See, it’s actually GOOD news. Never let a crisis go to waste.
The Chicago police should go on strike until Chicago has better gun control laws, as Bloomberg wants for NYC (snickering)
Where are Sharpton and Jackson? Oh, that’s right, it’s black on black shootings — no need for them to show up; race is not a factor.
Tribal warfare; not bad for a Monday night. Can’t wait to see the weekend results. Sounds like Mayor Rahm needs to again scold them against killing children.
Was the dead 17year old Trayvon? or will we ever hear of him?
We need to make guns illegal in Chicago!
I’d be willing to bet that not one gun involved was acquired by the user in a legal manner.
But, but, maybe there aren't enough gun laws on the books at this time. Rambooo should get on the stick and write more anti gun laws right away.
I think you mean Brian Ross...

Something must be wrong in my neighborhood here in semi-rural east Tennessee. We're gun saturated, with just about everybody having and keeping loaded guns, the sherif's police are at last a 10 minute call away, and we haven't even had an accidental shooting since 1987 when I moved here. Of course, we don't have very many Amish either.
Maybe they're BOTH responsible.
Truth be told, it's Rahmbo's problem. Its his gun-free city.
When you outlaw guns, only the outlaws have them.
Chicongo is a democrat stronghold of thugs (politicians), gang-bangers and murderers.
Yes I did.
I am now qualified to work for the major networks as a investigative journalist. Sorry Mr. Williams (wink wink not)
IDM! They all look alike to me.
These people think they are in Africa engaging in old fashioned tribal war. The tribal wars are basically wars of hatred and revenge. Wars over someone having something (land, rights, money, status) that someone else doesn’t have. How is this different from the gang wars Chicago?
And we’re expecting The One to show up for face time on this when??????
I agree with Ann Coulter. They all should have a gun. That should solve the problem in a short time.
What do people expect when they keep voting in Democrats to run their cities that do even know what they are doing.
What do people expect when they keep voting in Liberals to run their cities that do even know what they are doing.
Ah Chicago, the next Detroit.
Pretty soon they will be killing themselves faster than they can reproduce which will make the population bomb, pro-abortion, planned parenthood crowd happy as their real goal is to reduce the world’s population.
In the case of liberals, democrats, Marxists, Muslims, they might be on to something.
A giant circular firing squad for all the above groups would certainly improve the quality of life in the USA and most countries of the world.
Have at it you low life vermin and when you have eliminated your defective DNA from the gene pool we will all be much safer.
From their leader, B.H. Obama: If they bring a knife to the fight , we bring a gun.
