19 People Shot Overnight in Chicago

Will Mayor Blame Chick-Fil-A?

In a particularly bloody night of this brutal Chicago summer, 19 people were shot throughout the city of Chicago Thursday night into early Friday morning, including 13 who were hit between 9:15 and 9:45 p.m. During that period 8 people—many of them teens—were shot at 79th Street and Essex Avenue.

The terror ended just after 1:30 a.m. Friday, when a 17-year-old was shot in the Homan Square neighborhood. The overnight shootings were concentrated in Chicago’s south and west neighborhoods, which have had a devastating summer with shootings and homicides in the gang-plagued area. In the first 20 days of August, 38 people were killed.

It looks as though Chicago has it's own war zone. I'm sure that if this continues to escalate, the mob will declare martial law through the use of government officials.

BTW, doesn't Chicago and the state of Illinois have some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation? How's that working for ya?

I wonder if Sharpton and Jackson will be holding demonstrations there soon? I hear Kevlar is in style there this time of year...

Sorry guys, that welfare check just isn't making the payments and insurance on junior's black escalade...

But we all know the sad truth: it's all Bush's fault...

I suppose, as long as the Mayor can throw the vile Chick-Fil-A out of town, order will be restored and his administration a success! Could a Nobel Peace Prize be on the horizon?

And the answer to your final question, "No, I haven't been drinking..." DC

At least they are attempting to rid the city of guns.
You know, so the law abiding citizens have no chance to defend all.

I guess its lichen your poison, watch your family members get shot or face "gun possession charges".

Sad thing is, Pike county Illinois is the most famous county in the country for producing trophy whitetails.

Wow...those were great comments. Especially the first few from someone named "Denney Crane".

Obama needs to call on his Muslim brothers in the Nation of Islam to help quell the violence in his hometown. I'd love to see them come to Dallas afterwards. On the other hand, the "progressives" could very well be staging many of these gun-related events around the country in order to bolster public opinion against gun ownership. Murder, you say, is the result? Well, yeah! Actual blood flowing gets public attention every time and, let's face it, an ordered society is worth a few measly lives. At least, that's what our current leadership seems to think. Hey, it worked for Pol Pot.
