    At least 21 people were wounded in separate shootings around the city, including a man who died this morning after he was shot in the head, Chicago police said.

    One of the shootings happened about 3 p.m. in the 6200 block of South Cottage Grove in the Woodlawn neighborhood. A 56-year-old man was standing on the corner when a passing car fired in his direction, said Police News Affairs Officer Laura Kubiak. He fell to the ground in pain and discovered he was shot in his calf, Kubiak said. He was taken to an area hospital and listed in good condition.

    About 8:10 p.m. in the 2900 block of North Milwaukee Avenue in the Logan Square neighborhood, a 47-year-old man was shot in his arm. Police said the shooting might have been a drive-by. The victim was taken to Norwegian-American Hospital and is now listed in good condition.

    In another shooting, which happened roughly 20 minutes earlier in the Ashburn neighborhood, a man, 19, was wounded in the leg in the 3900 block of West 79th Street outside Bogan Computer Technical High School. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn and is now listed in critical condition. The victim has gang-affiliation and was not being cooperative in the police investigation, Kubiak said.


    A little earlier, about 7:30 p.m., a 17-year-old boy was standing on the sidewalk on the 7400 block of South Evans Avenue when he heard shots and felt pain. He was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to the upper right side.

    Two people were shot at about 6:45 p.m. in the 8400 block of South Muskegon Avenue, but both told conflicting stories, said Kubiak.

    An 18-year-old gang- affiliated man suffered a graze wound but refused treatment. He said he was walking in the 8400 block of South Escanaba Avenue when a suspect walked up and shot him, police said. The other victim, 19, told a different story. He said he was driving when someone pulled up and began shouting gang slogans and shot into his car, police said. He drove himself to Advocate Trinity Hospital where he was treated and released.

    Police could not locate either victims for interviews after the shootings, Kubiak said.

    Earlier Saturday at about 11 a.m., a 25-year-old man was shot on the 5300 block of South Laflin Street. He was wounded in the arm and hospitalized.Police said the Laflin shooting appeared to be gang-related, but witnesses were giving conflicting accounts of the event.

    About two minutes later, a 28-year-old man was shot in the Roseland neighborhood in the 10500 block of South Corliss Avenue, police said. He was taken to Roseland Community Hospital with a gunshot wound to his right calf and was described as in "stable" condition.

Another victim, 27, was treated and released from Trinity with a graze wound to his arm, police said. The 18-year-old and 27-year-old have gang affiliations, Kubiak said.

    Meanwhile law-abiding citizens are forbidden arms to defend themselves with. But criminals use firearms with impunity.

    Not in college yet (Head off to Wesleyan in laterish August!), but I was never anti-gun guys...
    As I always keep saying, I'm by no means liberal, everything is issue by issue for me, and the only reason you guys believe I am an extreme liberal is only due to the fact that compared to your extreme right beliefs I am on the opposite end of the spectrum. Do not fail to remember and recognize the middle ground!

    That looks like a slow night in Chicago, and only one dead, ..? The new generation ain't near as good a shot as the generation before them obviously ... Those areas are Prime real estate in Chicago, all inhabited by some of Chicago's finest scum ... People in Chicago don't need no guns to protect themself, they got the Chicago PD and if you don't believe me ask Mayor Daley, the Democratic Committee men, Alderman, and City Council all who carry guns without permits by the way or at least they used to ... Cleaning of the gene pool at its finest ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Meanwhile, Commiefornia is half-way to making it illegal to open-carry. Assembly voted in favor of it yesterday. AB1934 passed 41-25 and now moves to the senate. When will we sell Kali back to the mexicans?

    To quote Mr. Miyagi:

    Miyagi: Walk on road, hm? Walk left side, safe. Walk right side, safe. Walk middle, sooner or later
    [makes squish gesture]
    Miyagi: get squish just like grape. Here, karate, same thing. Either you karate do "yes" or karate do "no." You karate do "guess so,"
    [makes squish gesture]
    Miyagi: just like grape. Understand?

    Every politician we have in this country thinks that they are representing the middle ground, and that compromise solves every problem... Except for when they encounter one of their hot-button issues. Then you truly find out where they stand in the political spectrum.

    PS, Mayor Daley will tell you that his gun laws would work fine if they didn't sell guns in the suburbs of Chicago. Because all of those poor, underprivileged kids that join gangs spend their days driving out of the city to pay hundreds of dollars for a gun with a paper trail.

    Our government is full of Democrats and a few Republicans who supposedly occupy the "middle-ground". Obama can always count on them in a pinch.
