Calling for widespread action to stop gun violence in Chicago, about 70 faith leaders from the city and nearby suburbs gathered Monday for prayer and reflection.
"We're tired of doing funerals. I feel like this tiredness has awakened us to really do something," said Pastor Paco Amador of the New Life Community Church in Little Village.

And then things go back to the usual, death and destruction.
“We’re tired of doing funerals. I feel like this tiredness has awakened us to really do something,”
The violence and killings in Chicago are these people’s fault. They support the corrupt politicians and street thugs who make Chicago what it is. Then they put on this phony victim act and pretend that it is not their fault things are so bad. They are nothing but Hypocrites. They make me sick.
They want to pass more gun control laws. They want to give more taxpayer money to thugs and criminals.
Good luck with all that.
It is Democrats that are causing your problems up there.
The over/under is 6.
I’ll take the over. Hell, 6 is one drive by!
Magical thinking. Hey, pass another gun control law. The leftist morons around the nation apparently think that will help.
Pure insane stupidity...
They have their reward in full.
Gun violence in Chicago?
Guns are illegal in Chicago.
I think there were more people killed in Chicago over the weekend than were killed in the Aurora shooting.
Even if these clergy were all Mr. Integrity, they would find it extremely difficult to reach these lost, drifting gang bangers who live the ever-hating morals of the only families they know. It takes a church not just a preacher. (Shameless pun on it takes a village.)
How’s that working for ya?
First Mayor Dead Fish says don’t shoot the kids.
Now a gaggle of so-so preachers say leave it off for a weekend.
The gangs? They don’t even bother to laugh. They don’t notice. They are spiritual zombies.
“Peace” in Chicago!
Exactly. Just need more taxpayer funds. They know who the bad guys are and they accept and tolerate them.
Peace will have to live in many more Chicagoans’ hearts before it will start to be seen in the city. (The same could be said of just about any large, declining US city.)
The Gordian knot of subsidized moral squalor in the black community must be cut. What slavery and Jim Crow could not steal, white liberals bribed away.
....the most powerful nation in the world is reduced to begging criminals to stop.
It really is Obamaland. :)
