"We hardly ... have any crime," said Jennifer West, who lives close to where the incident occurred.
I'm sorry, what planet are you living on??
Urban youth, gang violence.
Impossible.. they have "gun control" over there!
RIP little girl.
Sorry to hear about the girl.
But this reminds me of a line from a movie ("Car 57, where are you?", I think):
"We have the lowest repoted crime rate in the city!"
"That's because you don't report any of it!"
They brought her up in the gun control hearings today.
They also made a point to say that Chicago's gun violence issues are due to people getting guns in other states and that without that, their gun control laws would be working.
Let's see now if I have this correct. A lot of gang shootings in Chicago, so they want to take away guns from the honest citizens so they can't protect themselves against the gang shootings. Does that about say it all?
Well there you go. Bannig guns must be working.
Well, if their gun laws are working, that means the police are not doing their jobs and should be kicked to the curb. Right?
Along with the moron mayor.
The murder rate has been cut in half over the last 20 years. Many forget, Chicago had a murder count close to a 900+ per year from the 70's to the early 90's. So as bad as 500 sounds, it is nearly 1/2 of what it was in recent history with a higher population.
Sounds like a good argument for building a border fence around Chicago, to keep the guns out. "If it saves only one child's life!"
(Obama should regularly go back and do more work in Chicago. The community's organization seems to be unraveling a bit.)
Chicago has some relativity safe neighborhoods on the north side and scattered throughout the city that have crime rates at or below the national average.
And 500 is still higher than the (firearm) murder rate in entire state of Arizona...............with twice the population.
Just another example of gun control failing to perform as promised.
Now the left will say we need to take them all off the streets and that will fix it....... yeah ok.
Oh...I agree there is still a major problem. Just pointing out what so many forget, in 1992 Chicago had a murder rate of 34 per 100000 persons which is unheard of outside of a 3rd world country. While 500 is bad, they have made some progress.
Beautiful young girl murdered for less than nothing...
A civilized society would feed the shooter's entrails to a pack of starving wild dogs while he was still alive to watch it happen.
Condolences to the family and shame on the administrations in illinois, and in Chicago, where for years they have ignored, and/or failed to act on the numerous acts of violence by the drug dealers, gangs, and thugs, while instead, going against the good, law abiding citizens who happen to own weapons.
If they take all the gang bangers and other BGs off the street, and allow law abiding citizens to have handguns, that will fix it.
The Chicago machine, will never allow that. it would put the machine, out of business, if they did that.
I irony is, a murder that illustrates that the strictest gun control in America DOES NOT work, will be used to support more gun control.
