How long before we find out he played the kazoo at the Obama 2012 victory celebration and Michelle heads to the funeral to bash the NRA?

Prayers for the victim and his family.

Will Obama be using the “if I had a son.....” thingy on this one, too?

Meanwhile the “solution” according to them is to disarm the law-abiding citizens, as usual, insulting the memories of all these victims.

PS. Speaking of the “if I had a son” rhetoric, the ones most like Trayvon would be the thugs who shot this kid in the back.

This appears to be the victim. No doubt Rahm Emanuel will be trying to politically-capitalize on this tragedy.

I saw that movie in the 90s. Never liked it; I always thought it promoted and glorified violence, thus making it worse.

My daughter mentioned something on Facebook that she “liked”.

When a bomber sets off a bomb we blame the terrorist.
When a drunk driver kills somebody we blame the drunk.
So how come when someone shoots somebody - we blame the gun?

(Although I WILL have to tell her that some stores have taken pressure cookers off their shelves for awhile).

Yes, I saw that story. Won’t stop the trade of illicit pressure cookers, of course (to turn a phrase).

Indeed. Therefore, all the bloodshed it inspired is on its makers’ heads.

Not an issue to the left.

They thinks it’s cool.

Until it hits their doorstep. And by fomenting it, that becomes inevitable.

I wonder if Michelle will go to this boy’s funeral?

The AP and their obama ass-kissing stories. It’s like the story was important only because Odumbo’s home was involved but if it any other shooting, it wouldn’t even be a blip on their radar.

Lucky thing firearms are illegal in Chicago; otherwise someone might get hurt.

That boy might have looked very much like Barack’s son..... if only Barack hadn’t been a rump ranger.

Perhaps if they ban Obama’s Chicago home the shootings will stop.
