May 26, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- At least 17 people have been shot over the Memorial Day weekend, and six of them died.

The most recent victim was a man shot on the Near North Side just before 3 a.m. Sunday. Chicago police say the 42-year-old victim was shot in the head in the 1000-block of North Branch Street.

Another man died after he was shot in the head in a possible drive-by Saturday night in the 7300-block of South Dorchester.

Among the other victims was Leetema Daniels, 17, who was shot in the head Friday night in the 400-block of North Central Avenue. Another 18-year old man was seriously wounded in the same shooting.

Strict gun laws in place, so the only change needed now is their culture.

This is why the DNC and its state media have to ignore the deaths there,

"The mobs of great cities add just so much to the support of pure government, as sores do to the strength of the human body. It is the manners and spirit of a people which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution".

Thomas Jefferson

This is exactly what Newt was saying months ago in the gun debate. Arm the citizens and if Obama really cared about violence, he would begin to help those in Chicago where murders are the highest. The liberals were saying, we can’t do that...we need more gun control... so more die.

Yep. No profit for liberals in a change of culture.

A change in culture would only hurt the political fortunes of the democrats.

It is not the level of gun control laws or easy access to guns that drive crime. It is solely, the number of criminals present.

It is said that Ayers helped to finance Obama’s house.

This is why the DNC and its state media have to ignore the deaths there,

Their value was as voters for the election of Emmanuel and Obama. Those two jobs are filled and the winners don't need them anymore or care how many of the Obamabots kill each other. Washington DC, Chicago and New Orleans are portraits of years upon years of pathetic democrat rule.

6 dead in Chicago, good thing those darn gun control laws are rock solid in that state/sarc
The media will never discuss the real cause of the violence in Chicago, they’d rather just blame the gun

....what is needed is what we have around the U.S......................namely, the more weapons in the hands of the good guys the less crime there is!

If Chicago would follow the best state model, which means a state with large urban areas but CCW, their crime would go down IF and only IF they prosecute existing gun laws which they are too lazy to do. They are looking for a quick and eash fix!

Not true. Criminals can only function where they are permitted to function.

Come June 9th, Illinois is likely to go for gun liberty by default, and the big drop in crime is projected so much that Rahm Emanuel has already tried to claim credit for it.

The Chicago situation is exacerbated right now because the two major crime gangs that used to dominate the city have both been broken up. Fragmented, some of the tiny gangs control as little as a single block of territory.

And if three or four honest citizens on that block get guns, it will neutralize the ability of the local gang to maintain control.

The big question is how rapidly law and order will be restored. It may literally be in as little as a few weeks to a few months.

And yes, a lot of criminals will die before this happens, before they get the message.

It will be a sight to see, and gun liberty advocates will have a full scale, real world model to show what happens when gun liberty exists.

Actually, the murder toll through the end of April was only 93 versus 161 last year.

It was the lowest number of homicides in Chicago at April 30th in 50 years.

IMO Chicago is being set up to fine-tune procedures for martial law. Same as Cyprus showed the way to clean out our bank accounts, Venazuela showed the way to install communism in a country totally and fairly bloodlessly.

No doubt, armed law abiding citizens will drive crime down if Chicago actually gets ccw, but I’m not sure I beleive that will happen to any great extent. BTW, Detroit has ccw and many armed citizens that kill criminals regularily, yet they still have very high crime rates.

Was anyone stabbed or beat to death? I’m guessing there must be some killings that didn’t use guns.

The body count in Chicago by 5:00 AM Tuesday will probably exceed the OK tornado toll of 24. Will Obama take a trip to the bullet-riddled streets of the hood that he “organized” to view the carnage? Of course not. He feels much better going to Red States where civilized people with common sense vote for competent Republicans.

Detroit is kind of a special case, because it had a huge exodus of good citizens, leaving it in a position of collapse. Chicago is going to need a giant bucket of popcorn.

Obama lived on the southEAST side in the hoity toity “liberal” 5th ward all near the U of I campus. The southwest side is where Midway airport is located not the Midway Campus, which is 12 miles east of the airport
