Seven people were killed and at least 30 others were shot in violence that plagued Chicago over Father's Day weekend.

Six of the fatalities and 11 other shootings occurred overnight Saturday leading into Father's Day, including the fatal shooting of a 16-year-old boy.

On the Southwest Side, five people were shot, one fatally, in two shootings in the Little Village neighborhood.

Gun free zones rule!!! Right there rahm-en noodle? Sounds like a case for the MAIGgots to undertake. Like addressing the bad guys and leaving the law abiding citizens alone. Calling buttinski bloomberg! Message for buttinski bloomberg!

They have such strict gun laws in Chicago, but the youth gangs apparently do not follow those laws. Who knew?

Liberals are puzzled. How could removing guns from the hands of law abiding citizens and leaving the law abiding citizens at the mercy of criminals possibly result in more deaths?

Has anything changed in Chicago? It’s always been a violent place from the days of Al Capone to the present. Hmmm. Haven’t Democrats controlled that city in all of that time?

Less ‘gun control’ Chi-town, and more gang control. Start patting down some of these thugs.
Why d’ya think they dress ‘baggy’?
I suspect they wouldn’t hesitate to accost one of us if some eagle-eyed hysteric noticed us printing. Difference being, we don’t have criminal records and do have CCLs.
Both strapped, so why us and not them? Becuzz they knows we won’ twist they funny caps aroun’ cuz.

On the bright side,

none of the victims or shooters had any plans for Fathers Day anyway.

DemoRatz are all for late term abortions. So what if they extend it out a decade or 3 longer. The sheeple are the victims and the guns are at fault. Go figure...then again why waste good brain energy.

Father's day in the Southside of Chicago. The confusion was just too much to handle.

“Father’s day in the Southside of Chicago. The confusion was just too much to handle. “

You don’t mean that there are more guys like the one “brother” in Nashville, with the 22 kids (that he will admit to fathering) and those 14 “egg carriers?” I mean it would be racist to even suggest that the “Chicago Amish” are “profligate procreators” with “egg carriers” to whom they are not married.

I think it is beyond the time for the community organizer in chief to get out there and have some face time with this apparent criminal element. With his gift of gab, I am sure he can talk them into disarming. I also think it would be destructive to that message to have him ringed with secret service and police when he gives those speeches.

Not entirely true, there was a time when Daley Sr. dealt with the little urchins in a much swifter harsher manner.

Now, it’s a free for all. Our Chief of Police is a flippin drunk without a clue.

I have no clue what they think the solution may be, I can only guarantee that tossing more money is not the answer, but alas, it’s what they’ll do in the end.

The added benefit to the Left is that, with every newly filled plot in Cook County cemeteries, several new voters are created.

I have read no news out of Illinois about what is happening with guns there right now. Since the clock ran out without a gun law, can the people in the state buy guns and wear them in public?

I’ll bet if they had strict gun control laws, the criminal element wouldn’t have guns and the death rate would decrease./s

Liberal logic, OK for gang bangers to have guns cause they are all victims, the rest of us can’t have guns because we don’t understand the struggles that gang bangers have gone through..notice all this garbage happens in liberal areas

Thirty shootings and only seven dead? Chicago thugs not getting enough range time. Try holding the pistol straight and use two hands guys. It will up your production

That's what created the confusion on Father's Day in the first place!

This president so disgusts me. He and his worthless wife could have had such an influence on “their people” during his soon to be EIGHT YEAR tenure as our leader. They have done absolutely nothing for them .... they had every chance.

All she could do is advise them to eat their vegetables, for God’s sake.

But, no ...they’re too busy enjoying time on the golf course, time in Air Farce One, time with Beyoncé, time in the Hamptons, time posing for magazine covers, etc.

I hope to GOD the both of them punished beyond belief in the afterlife for such an opportunity squandered. I hope one day “their people” (and it’s odd, because he’s not even one of them), will wake up and realize what they could have done, but did not do.

They should be forced to stand in the ER and watch as the bodies come rolling in on a weekend.
