A Truly Sad Story From The City Of Chicago

police line

This is a story I simply did not want to cover. A 15 yr old girl that had performed at Obama’s inauguration was shot and killed near her home in Chicago, yesterday. We’ve reported numerous times that the city of Chicago has some of the toughest gun laws in the country and one of the highest crime rates. The state of Illinois was named the most dangerous state in the union by the FBI.

I’m not suggesting in any way that someone else with a gun would have prevented this from happening but I am suggesting that it does prove the point that outlawing guns will not remove them from the hands of criminals who wish to do you harm.

This is a very sad story and I grieve for this family. The saddest part to me, though, is that Rahm Emmanuel and his ilk will use this story to justify further disarmament.
