A bloody weekend in Chicago left at least 22 people shot and four dead in incidents from Friday afternoon through Sunday evening.
On Sunday afternoon, five people were shot, including a 17-year-old boy, who was wounded in the 1500 block of South Millard Avenue. He was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital. Three people were critically wounded in a shooting in Grand Crossing, and another in the Oakland neighborhood.
At least six people were shot between Saturday and Sunday morning.
A 28-year-old man, identified as Larry Randle, of the 1200 block of West 97th Street, was killed near his home about 1 p.m. Saturday, Chicago Police said.
Police said Randle was walking when a light-colored vehicle pulled up, and two men got out and fired shots, hitting him in the back. Randle was taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park in critical condition and pronounced dead at 1:35 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
Let's see if I understand this; Chicago has some of the most stringent and restrictive gun control laws in the U.S., so what happened?
IMHO, just another example of how criminals do not and WILL NOT follow any laws regarding guns (or anything else for that matter). Only the law-abiding citizens will be affected by these irrational, emotionally-fueled, knee-jerk reaction laws in the quest of doing "something".
Infringing the 2nd Amendment will not stop criminals from being criminals. If you can't understand this simple principle, I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
Funny how they do not cover any stories that will prove that they are wrong.
Well, of course not! That would be very smart of them, now would it?
MSM won't cover any story that will make King Obama look bad ! These people are like lemmings, they will follow him to the gates of hell if he asked them to ! I know there is such a thing as freedom of the press , but is there also a thing as freedom to SUPPRESS the TRUTH from the American People ??????
Backpack registrations and limits on sizes being recommended by Obama Administration. Also they want a backpack free zone around all high population centers like large cities schools and Universities.
“An organizer working in and for an open society is in an ideological dilemma. To begin with, he does not have a fixed truth — truth to him is relative and changing;everything to him is relative and changing. He is a political relativist.” — Saul D. Alinsky, Rules For Radicals, 1971.
Take away the money and power from DC politicians.
>>> IS ANYONE SURPRISED ??? < THIS IS THE HORRIBLE HOME OF ALL CAPONE , MEYER LANSKY , ERIC ' WITHOLDER ' , barry soetoro obummer , AND MANY OTHER MONSTER CRIMINALS .
Yessir, By Golly. That Gun Control is Really werkin Aint It ?? LMMFAOOOOO. Fuggin LIB/DEM Anti-Gun @ZZWIPES
I agree: Take away the MONEY and POWER from D.C.! Vote these bastards out ASAP and IMPEACH OBAMA!
Great idea ... unworkable plan, Terry. The Senate holds the impeachment trial for removal from office and Lib Dems control it. Elections and election fraud matter. We need massive changes to happen in 2014 which means ALL OF US must volunteer to get out the vote to regain the majority. The only other option, and that is looking more like a future reality, is too bloody to contemplate.
Sounds great Glenn, but the voting-majority has proven ( twice ), that this nation has been sabotaged by the takers...the weak, naive, and appeasement-driven fools that put the king in office, so, elections be damned, when a tyrant gets a grip, all is probably hopeless until option 2 takes place, and since the GOP ( The Gutless Old Party ), has become neutered, lost, and in a coma, they do not provide me with any confidence of massive changes even if they take the numbers. There is no get-well-soon for our America.
Well put...We need more who are all about the USA, brave, strong and willing to
stand up to their convictions !
Glenn, according to the 25 th Amend., the VP and the cabinet can remove the Pres. from office, if they fail to do so , then the Congress can, if they fail to do so, then the Supreme Court can , if they fail to do so, then the Military can, and if they fail to do so then a CIVIL WAR is upon the American People. Now in reality who do you think will do the Job......that's right..... WE THE PEOPLE ! Elections don't work with this adm., they control the outcome of the elections.
I'm inclined to agree with you. If the Military doesn't remove Obama from office and put him on trial for sedition and treason, all that's left is a bloody revolution targeting the head of the snake first, followed by his subversive followers.
