46 Shot - 7 Dead - Thank Goodness for Strict Gun Laws

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2...t-north-avenue

Welcome to Obama Gun Regulation. For your own good.

Bloody weekend violence leaves 7 dead, 46 shot

As she headed out the door Sunday morning, Adrianne Wilberton put on a brave face. It was time to tell one of her sons the news, and she didn’t want him hearing it from anyone else.

But her composure unraveled as she walked toward the car, a barrage of neighbors hugging her on the way out of her apartment. By the time she reached the front lawn, the mother of six was in tears.

“Our son is dead! Oh Jesus!” the 57-year-old screamed, referring to her other son, Cortez, who was killed earlier that morning on Chicago’s West Side. “Oh my God! Oh my God! We were just talking.”

At least 33 people were shot — six of them fatally — Saturday afternoon through Father's Day Sunday, stretching from 94th Street and Loomis Avenue on the South Side up to about North Avenue and North Pulaski Road on the Northwest Side, according to authorities. The youngest person who was killed during one of the bloodiest weekends in Chicago this year was 16.

Shootings from Friday afternoon into Saturday left another 13 people shot, 1 fatally. The combined tally resulted in 46 people shot, and seven killed this weekend. Last year at about the same time, there were 53 people shot, nine fatally in one weekend.

The rash of violent crime came as Chicago has seen a large dip in overall homicide and shooting numbers so far this year.

When asked whether this weekend's shooting numbers cast doubt on the department's crime-fighting strategies, Chicago police spokesman Adam Collins insisted they are working, noting the city has so far in 2013 posted its lowest homicide totals in years.

Collins also reiterated a position that police Superintendent Garry McCarthy has expressed publicly throughout the year when discussing the department's crime-fighting efforts. “There's going to be good days, and there's going to be bad days, which is why we've been calling this progress, not victory,” said Collins, who pointed out drops in overall crime.

Across the city, reminders of the bloody weekend literally stained some of Chicago’s streets. In the city’s Little Village neighborhood, 15 lit memorial candles stood in blood where Ricardo Herrera, 21, was fatally wounded and two others shot on the 2500 block of South Ridgeway Avenue.

About five miles away, a long trail of blood remained splattered in a Northwest Side alley — and on the bumper of a nearby car — where 16-year-old Kevin Rivera tried to run from a gunman on a bicycle, authorities told the Tribune.

Rivera’s family was planning to move in two weeks from their sometimes violent section of the Hermosa neighborhood, and a social worker was enrolling the teenager in the city's summer jobs program.

But late Saturday night, someone shot Rivera in the 4100 block of West North Avenue, police said. He attempted to run but collapsed a few feet away. The boy, who lived a few blocks away from the scene, was pronounced dead about 1:35 a.m. Sunday at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, authorities said.

What role do you believe Obama has in the current state of Chicago?

They won't answer. That requies some thought and effort. They just want to lazily throw out theor talking points and blame Obama.

The cities with the worst statistics on crime, teen pregnancy, drop out rate, etc. are generally cities with liberal democratic leadership from Mayor to city council. Weird that liberal leadership perpetuates the problems versus minimizing them.
I love posts from people with zero clue on how the world works.

I don't know what, if any, input or "blame" Obama has to do with it, but he certainly agreed with it back in the 90s:

FactCheck: Yes, Obama endorsed Illinois handgun ban
Obama was being misleading when he denied that his handwriting had been on a document endorsing a state ban on the sale and possession of handguns in Illinois. Obama responded, “No, my writing wasn’t on that particular questionnaire. As I said, I have never favored an all-out ban on handguns.”

Actually, Obama’s writing was on the 1996 document, which was filed when Obama was running for the Illinois state Senate. A Chicago nonprofit, Independent Voters of Illinois, had this question, and Obama took hard line:

35. Do you support state legislation to:
a. ban the manufacture, sale and possession of handguns? Yes.
b. ban assault weapons? Yes.
c. mandatory waiting periods and background checks? Yes.

OK. Obama agreed with gun control laws while he was in Chicago. But I still don't see how that implicates him for the current troubles in Chicago, as Otter implied. I asked what role he had, not what Obama's opinion was on gun control laws.

There is this not quite so new thing called google. You should try it sometime. Whule you're at it, you should also look at how much larger Illinois's population is than utah's.

It doesn't implicate him, just that he was a part of a leadership that is failing in Chicago. But let's be honest here, this has been a problem in Chicago for over 100 years. They're raising a vast amount of poor-uneducated people there and this behavior shouldn't be a shock.

"Chicago was settled by people from New York, who said. "I like the crime and poverty, but it's just isn't cold enough."" -Richard Jennie.

As long as well allow the poor to mate the way they are we will continue to feel the pinch of a lack of education and resources due to high population growth. I don't know what the right answer is that wouldn't be tyranny, but there you go

It is truly impossible to fathom how utterly and completely the mainstream media is up Obama's asshole...Even in the days of the Soviet empire, I doubt Pravda was as slavishly pro-communist party as our media is pro-Democratic party...
