Why the shooting won't stop in Chicago.

The story of why they won't stop shooting in Chicago.

This is the story of why they won’t stop shooting in Chicago.

It’s told by the wounded, the accused and the officers who were on the street during a weekend in April 2008 when 40 people were shot, seven fatally.

Two years later, the grim reality is this: Nearly all of the shooters from that weekend have escaped charges.

Of course, this bit of information will be ignored by the gun controllers when years later post-McDonald Chicago still looks like a war zone on warm weekends. They'll say that arming law abiding citizens did nothing to prevent the loss of life, when the real fault lies within a broken criminal justice system that fails to keep dangerous people off the streets.

So while mayor Daley is coming up with new and exciting ways to harass law-abiding gun owners, perhaps he should invest some of that effort into properly imprisoning those who have broken the law.
