Obama Gun Control doesn’t work: 3 children among at least 60 shot over holiday weekend in Obama’s hometown of Chicago
Gun control is a favorite topic of Democrats to divert attention from real issues such as Islamic terrorism.
But, in the real world of the city of Chicago with the toughest gun control laws in the country, people are shot in droves day in day out. Gun homicides are up an astounding 50%. And the national media doesn’t report any of this strictly for political reasons.
ChicagoTribune reports a 5-year-old girl and 7-year-old boy playing on an Englewood street were shot in their legs late Monday night, the two among at least 60 wounded in shootings over the holiday weekend.
The two were in the 5500 block of South Hermitage about 11 p.m. when at least one person started shooting, hitting the two children. The younger was first taken to Saint Bernard Hospital and Healthcare Center by family members before being transferred to Comer Children’s Hospital. The older was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital by paramedics.
The girl and the boy, who are cousins, were playing outside in a group of children when someone came out of a gang way and fired shots, according to family. Dozens of people were on the block, and people scattered.
The girl was the first one the family realized was shot. Her cousin, Darryl Smith, drove her to Comer Children’s Hospital.
“I literally ran through every red light,” he said as he stood outside Comer’s early Tuesday morning.
More people are shot in Chicago every week than what happened in Orlando. And it happens every week. Have you heard any Democrat talk about what’s happening in Chicago?
