Only 2? We've got to take up a collection to send more ammo. 2 down equals 6 Obama votes lost.

Remember Chicago values. As long as they gang bangers support homosexual marriage, then they support Chicago values, no matter what else they do.

Considering all of the violence in Chicago, mostly centered in the ghetto, the violence could be called one of the Chicago values which Rahm Emmaneul holds dear.

20 shot and only 2 fatalities.
Damn somebody needs to teach that bunch of Holder's People how to shoot. Even in Pockeestan and Alfgannystan they do better than that.

I understand there's Fed stimulus funds available for more instruction and range time....it comes with the grant money for midnight basketball...if all goes as planned the range will be open after basketball...thus getting the kids thru to daylight at which point they can go home and get some much needed sleep....

What a hell hole!

Where's the outrage?

Oh that's right, only white on black crime is an outrage.

Black on Black crime is just a culture thing.

The press doesn't care either. If ever - ever - a Tea Party member kills someone - they'll care. It'll be NEWS for years. The effing hateful 'press' is waiting...

Looks like they took Rahm to heart and are trying not to kill the children, merely maiming them now.

This is the Democrat party “base” that’s getting slaughtered in the streets of Chicago.
Maybe Chicago should try passing “gun control” legislation. Oh wait..

If the 20 shootings were done by just one person, Barry would be there with the teleprompter and camera.

“If it wasn't for the murders and woundings, the crime rate in Chicago would actually be pretty low.” Mayor Rahm Emanuel doing his ex-DC Mayor Marion Barry imitation. Chicago is on its way to being No. 1 as murder capital of the United States.

Hey Rahmbo, I realize you could probably care less about this (I say that because apparently you’re doing nothing about it), but I was wondering if y’all are having fun yet?

I've walked the streets of the Bronx a few times...at night...and they were paradise compared to the streets of Chicago.

I think you've misunderstood his strategy....if Illinois was a swing state he'd be there.

Sorry but the 40 or so shootings that happen in a typical Chicago weekend far exceed a typical week in Detroit.

I believe there is a “banglist”.

I’ve flagged it, perhaps someone will come and add you.

They need the Homeboyz Nightsites that mount on the side of the slide for shooting sideways.
