Sad day for the folks in Chicago. Until someone is willing to step up to the plate, take on gangs, and lock up violent criminals, the carnage will continue. Gun control hasn’t worked and isn’t going to work, and young people are being killed every day. How bad is it going to have to get and for how long before voters can see through the facade? Gun control won’t save them,and neither will Bloomberg and Obama. The smart ones will just vote with their feet and move out.

As if this were any surprise in a district that was overwhelmingly Dem to begin with.

@moondogblue…you got half of it right. More gun control in Chicago certainly won’t work but neither will locking up criminals more criminals as we already incarcerate more, per capita, than any other nation.

What we need to do is legalize drugs and remove the profit margin from their nefarious industries so that these communities are forced, organically, to apply higher value to an education, entrepreneurship and the like.

I am flabbergasted, why a city with the highest murder rate and strictest gun control laws, would determine that voting for more gun control is the solution..
As posted before, it is a sad day for Chicago, and Illinois. I feel sorry for them, reminds me of greyhounds at the race track, always thinking, “I can see the rabbit, if I was just a little faster..”.
