    In 14 hours on Sunday in Chicago, 44 people were shot, including 5 who died, police say

    Source: CNN

    Chicago police records show 44 people were shot on Sunday, including five who were killed.

    In three hours beginning at 1:30 a.m., records show, 30 were shot and two killed in 10 incidents.

    "The city of Chicago experienced a violent night," Bureau of Patrol Chief Fred Waller said Sunday afternoon. "Some of these instances were targeted and were related to gang conflicts in those areas."

    In at least one incident, shooters opened fire into a crowded street party, Waller said.

    In one instance, a 17 year old girl was shot in the face and pronounced dead at the scene.
    Well, that's one answer to the question, "How is years and years of DEMOCRAT government control working out?

    1. So far this weekend 63 shot 9 dead here in Chicago.

    They say things were worse in the '90s. I don't remember it this bad.

    4. Remind me again how guns make us safer?
    When only criminals have guns, then criminals rule.

    And why is it that other cities that have just as many or more guns don't have the same problem? Almost all, if not all, that have high murder rates are DEMOCRAT CONTROLLED.

    Keep in mind the violence took place in Chicago, a city ruled by DEMOCRATS for decades, and which has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, to the extent that it's nearly impossible for a civilian to legally own a firearm there.
    Why, it's almost as if violent criminals with murder on their minds don't care if they break a few gun laws!

    A fine reminder of how Dems work. I lived in the Chicago burbs years ago. When riding the train into town (think L or elevated), I asked why people were only sitting on one side of the train. I was told bullets. The folks in the projects were shooting at the train. And that was in the 70's. Can't imagine how bad it is now.

    If law abiding citizens had the ability to carry personally owned guns in Chicago...even better...have concealed carry permits...then you wouldn't have every day in Chicago looking like a scene from The Purge.


    I'd be willing to bet my strips not a one of those thugs involved in the shootings was a legal gun owner who obtained their firearms via a gun shop.

    Actually if they had better gun control the kill ratio would be a lot higher.

    Then this would be a self solving problem.
    I love the sound of liberal heads exploding in the morning!!

    Toxically masculine and proud of it!

    I will give up my guns when the liberals give up their illegal aliens.

    One of my best friends moved to Chicago from Texas during the years I lived there. He asked his girlfriend (soon to be his wife) what he had to do to register his guns. She laughed and said that he couldn't in the city. He brought them anyway.
