This simply can not be true. You can't hardley have a gun in Chicago therefore, there should be no shootings there. Probably just someright wing news rag trying to make trouble in paradise. There can't possibly be shooting where it is illeagle to carry guns...John

For those of us old enough to remember , it's like the 60's on the news at night. Back then it was a body count in Vietnam now it's a body count in the city of Chicago. And the Democrats want us to be unable to protect ourselves why?
