There is a crime problem in Chicago. 2 dead, 16 injured in city shootings – Chicago Tribune.
Obama et al will blame the guns, because that is easy. But it is gang violence, as evidenced by this statement from a person in Chicago.
The woman, who lives near where the shooting happened, said she was driving west on Division, on her way home, when she saw the man lying on the ground.
“I had to stop. … I couldn’t just keep going,” she said, declining to identify herself because she feared retaliation from the gangs in the community.
She feared retaliation for the crime of having seen the victim of gang violence die in front of her. And they want to blame the guns.
It would make more sense to blame the War on (Some) Drugs™, but they won’t do that either.
