Its important to note that this girl was killed with a handgun - not an ‘assault weapon’ of any time, semi-automatic or fully automatic.
Just an illegal handgun in Chicago...and no law against assault weapons is going to change that.
But it gets worse - one of the perps, Michael Ward (18 years old) was on probation for a weapons violation conviction. If the city fails to enforce current gun laws, why should others suffer new ones?
Yes indeed. The Chicago PD’s study of 2011 Chicago murders shows ONE homicide that year committed with a rifle (any sort of rifle). Seems awfully curious that big City pols and Paris Hilton wannabees like Michelle want to fix attention on “automatics” and gun bans when gangs are the obvious problem.
How do the gangs make money? By trafficking banned commodities. Expanding gun bans expands markets for banned gun, which expands and enriches gangs. Why do I suspect that they know this...(excepting Michelle — evidence suggests low IQ).
