NEWS ALERT: 60 Shot in US City… Please Pray

NEWS ALERT: 60 Shot in US City… Please Pray

Dozens were shot in THIS one U.S. City over the weekend. One of the more regulated cities for firearms, Chicago has created a city of helpless victims. More laws will NOT stop criminals from criminal acts, but it will inevitably create an environment where criminals feel safe to do as they please. Do you disagree with me? READ ON…


From Allen West:

The Chicago Tribune reports, Thirty-two people were shot in 15 hours between about noon on Monday and 3 a.m. on Tuesday to end the July 4th weekend, doubling the total number of gunshot victims from the three previous nights, according to police.

The attacks raised the number of people shot in the city over the Fourth of July weekend to at least 60, according to data collected by the Tribune. Among those, four people were fatally shot over the weekend holiday.

At least three of the victims were children under the age of 10. But the answer isn’t simply more gun control because a fifth person killed over the weekend was stabbed to death in a “domestic-related” incident.

Still, one can be grateful this long holiday wasn’t as bad as Memorial Day weekend when six people were killed and 63 were shot.

Here are some very telling statistics on gun violence in Chicago…

Week in Progress (7/3 – 7/9)
Shot & Killed: 3
Shot & Wounded: 48
Total Shot: 51
Total Homicides: 3

That’s a lot for the beginning of the week… (even more if you count the entire weekend)

July to Date
Shot & Killed: 6
Shot & Wounded: 65
Total Shot: 71
Total Homicides: 7

See how this entire month of stats compare to just THIS week!!! CRAZY!

Year to Date
Shot & Killed: 304
Shot & Wounded: 1738
Total Shot: 2042
Total Homicides: 338

Rather than create more laws and more laws, wouldn’t it be safer to have firearms training programs for the citizens of Chicago so they can protect themselves and deter criminals from the safety of Gun Free zones? My favorite saying rings even more loudly looking at these numbers…. An armed society is a polite society!
