ALERT: TERROR as 55 Shot, 13 Dead

With such a large number of dead and injured, you would think that liberals would be all over this like white on rice trying to figure out exactly how much gun control is needed to prevent this from ever happening again.

I wonder why that hasn’t happened yet…

Liberals are on one of their anti-gun kicks again, calling for gun control, bans on assault weapons, you know, the usual.

Yet, we have absolute proof that strict gun control laws do nothing to stop violent criminals from killing people.

Just look at what happened to Chicago over Father’s Day weekend.

This is insane.

From MSN:

Chicago recorded its 300th homicide this weekend and tallied six others over a 60-hour period that saw 55 people shot, 13 fatally, from Friday afternoon through early Monday morning.

So far this year, close to 1,800 people have been shot across the city and more than 200 of those wounded have died from their wounds, according to records kept by the Chicago Tribune. A total of 306 people have been killed this year, by shooting, stabbing or other means.

A 3-year-old boy was among the wounded who survived the weekend shootings. Police said he’s in critical condition. The 3-year-old was shot in the right shoulder near East 61st Street and South Kimbark Avenue in the Woodlawn neighborhood at 6:15 p.m. Sunday, police said. The boy was in a car seat when an unknown attacker fired shots at the car, police said. People in the vehicle managed to get the boy to University of Chicago Medical Center. He was then transferred to Comer Children’s Hospital in critical condition.

Five people were fatally shot and nine others were hurt between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Four of the fatalities occurred in seven hours. The fatalities included a 16-year-old boy who was killed in West Englewood about 9:05 p.m. Friday. He was in the front passenger seat of a car driving through an alley in the 6500 block of South Hamilton Avenue when two males came up and fired shots, according to police.

At least 28 people were wounded, three fatally, in shootings from 8:30 a.m. Saturday to 4:30 a.m. Sunday, the equivalent of somebody shot every 43 minutes. One fatal shooting occurred during a possible murder-suicide in Hyde Park about 9:50 a.m. Saturday, police said. Police responded to the 1400 block of East 54th Street for a well-being check and found a 65-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to the head. A man, 73, also was found shot in the head.

 

Oh that’s why! Chicago is the Democrat-run, gun-free utopia that progressives have wished for, except not really.
