6 Shot at Memorial For Victim of Chicago Gun Violence

Six people, including a 12-year-old girl, were shot Wednesday night on Chicago’s South Side during a memorial for a victim of a previous act of gun violence, police said.

The shootings occurred about 8:16 p.m. in the city’s Greater Grand Crossing community in a “business establishment” on the 500 block of East 75th Street, Chicago police said.

Community activist Jedidiah Brown told reporters that “the opposition” to those attending the memorial came through an alley before opening fire on the group of mourners. He added that the mother of the person being memorialized was also among the victims, though police have not confirmed that information.

A 12-year-old girl suffered a graze wound to the head from a bullet, police said, and was taken to Comer Children’s Hospital, where her condition had stabilized.

    What we need are more gun laws. Chicago has the most restrictive laws for private gun ownership and it is not working. New, common sense laws need to be put in place. If we can require health care be paid for out of pocket by all, we can require guns be required in every home. If you can not afford one, you can take your pick from those confiscated by the PD. Maybe this will stop, or at least slow this level of violence. This makes as much sense as anything that will follow by the gun grabbers who must believe that making more and more laws will generate one that will be followed by these lawless cretins. Hasn’t worked up to now, but hope springs eternal, I guess.

    The areas of Chicago that are experiencing these problems should be place under martial law. They should ask for federal troops to take over and those troops should be given approval to shoot to kill. The people caught committing these acts of terrorism should be sent to death row.

    For too long liberal Democrats have made Chicago into their dreamland. We now see what the seeds they sowed have produced. The voters should kick the current batch of corrupt politicians out of office and replace them with law and order conservatives.

    Time for a huge drug bust and gun bust. If Robert Kennedy to clean out the mob then a real DOJ and allowing the agencies to do their jobs, can wrap these people up and ship them out to a deep dark prison.

    I can’t remember one big raid during O’s terms. Hummm.
