Chicago Shooting Spree, Day 30: 42 Killed So Far

Washington DC - -(Ammoland.com)- The number of homicides in Chicago for January stands at 42, and the month isn’t over.

This makes it “the most deadly January in more than ten years.”

The most recent of the 42 homicides was the Tuesday murder of a 15-year old girl who took part in Obama’s second inauguration. The girl, Hadiya Pendleton, was standing with a group of friends in Vivian Gordon Harsh Park when a gunman ran up, opened fire, then fled the scene.

In short, while gun control proponents in Chicago promise peace and safety, it seems they are actually on the verge of delivering another year like 2012–a year in which more than 440 school age children were shot and wounded and 500 homicides were committed.

Chicago is the gun-control capital of America, yet NBC News accurately describes it as “bullet-scarred.”

      While gun control isn’t helping in Chicago, it’s not the problem either. Besides what that father said about ‘civility’ being a big issue in America, and I agree, I think the biggest issue in all of these places, including my own state, is the drug cartels and gangs. They only thrive because they are selling illegal products, prohibition, oops, I mean the war on drugs is I think one of the roots of our problems.

    2. Lets dismember Chicago from the state of Illinois so we can move on with life.
