Seven people were killed and at least 41 others were shot in violence that plagued Chicago over Father's Day weekend.

Six of the fatalities and 13 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.

This is what happens when kids in Chicago ask, “Daddy?” on Father’s Day.

Is there a lot of confusion on Fathers Day in Chicago?

Maybe Chik-fil-A could get a permit to open a store there if they promised to shoot a couple of customers every week; that would be reflective of Rahm’s beloved Chicago Values.

I guess some families celebrate “Fathers Day” a little differently than people in other regions of the country.

Chicago has become a “turd world” city, and is headed the way of Detroit.

If cities can have a “buy back” program for guns, why can’t we have a “buy back” program for illegals? Turn in an illegal and get a free iPad or something.

In recent years Chicago has lost two of the finest “community organizers” since Saul Alinsky himself.We know what happened to Osama Obama but let's not forget the esteemed (but not by me) Marxist Governor of Massachusetts,Deval “Coupe Deval” Patrick who was a Chicago “community organizer” at the same time Obama was.In fact they're long time,*very* close,pals.

2. Maintain Marksman qualifications....regularly
3. “Carry”........a Weapon.

You never hear about this?
I am not surprised. This does not advance the Liberals’ Agenda.

I love the Charter Arms Bulldog! They are a great gun, especially for the price! The .44spl is very lethal as well.

.44 spl is ballistically identical to the .45 ACP.

This is not possible because Chicago has gun control! Besides, Mayor Rahm Emanuel told he street gangs they needed to shape up and take their shootings to side streets and alleys so as to minimize the risk of killing kids in the crossfire. The plan is an EPIC FAIL so far, but hope springs eternal in the mayor's office and the Chicago Tribune.

You and I think more alike than different.

My idea has always been as follows:

- First, get all children 13 years old and younger OUT of that craphole Chicago Adopt them out, give them a chance at a better life elsewhere.
- Second, wall-off the two or three neighborhoods that have the gun and drug problems (those would be Austin, Englewood and Gresham.)
- Third, drop an unlimited supply of guns and ammunition in the centers of these three neighborhoods.
- Fourth, wait two weeks or whatever it takes for all gunfire in the aforementioned neighborhoods to stop.
- Finally, send in the National Guard, Army, Marines, whatever's required into the above neighborhoods and scoop up any survivors. Hopefully there aren't many. Put those who survived on trial for murder and carry out the punishment.

Problem solved, IMO.

They don't bother with aiming anymore. They haven't for years. They simply spray bullets using their mac-10's and mini's that have been modified to go fully auto. As long as they hit what they think is their target, they don't give a damn' about anyone else that they hit/kill.
