Good News: Only 9 Killed, 47 Wounded In Chicago During This Year’s July 4th Weekend!

Welcome to Liberal World, where this is almost cause for celebration

Chicago holiday violence: 9 killed, at least 47 wounded, but better than last year

Chicago was yet again riddled with a flurry of shootings this Fourth of July weekend, with at least 47 wounded and nine killed, according to multiple media reports.

The numbers were down from last year’s holiday weekend after police increased their presence by nearly a third — 2014 saw over 80 shootings with 16 fatalities. Police also seized over 80 illegal guns over the holiday, averaging around one per hour, DNA Info reported.

Some 3,400 illegal guns have been confiscated so far this year, according to the city’s police department.

On the bright side, Leftist Gun Grabbers want to take legally owned guns away from law abiding citizens, who need them to protect themselves and their families, heck, sometimes other citizens, from the violence rampant in Liberal cities. Let’s not forget that there is a 1 in 111 chance of being a victim of a violent crime in Chicago, 9 attacks per 1,000 residents, almost 3 times the national average. And this isn’t even including the assault and rape rates, which have not been reported for 2013 yet. And the crime rate did also drop after concealed carry was implemented in Chicago.

In Baltimore, two were shot and one killed Sunday. There were multiple shootings and stabbings, several fatal, since July began. But, hey, at least there were no roving gangs of youths causing rampant violence, which had become a pattern. And it was slightly better than the Memorial Day weekend. Not by much, though.

(Chicago Police Superintendent Garry) McCarthy said this year at least 12 people have already been arrested on their second gun possession charge and then released.

“We need some help here, folks. We have to fix this broken system.”

Huh. So, catching and releasing criminals. From the comments

Yet no President Obama so devastated as to break out in song over these lives? No demonstrations crying “black lives matter”?

No one to sue or blame? No race card to play? No huge media attention wanted.

Hey, no flags or “rogue” police officers are around to blame, so, let’s just shove this all under the rug and let business as usual continue.
