Gun control, Chiraq style: 21 shot (4 killed) over the weekend & woman grazed by bullet in her living room

Welcome to Chicago sign

Please tell me, those who support #GunControlNow, how’s that strict gun control working in Chiraq?

The details of the weekend shootings are below. The details about the woman grazed by a bullet in her living room are here.

From MyFoxChicago: Four men were killed and at least 17 other people have been wounded in President’s Day weekend shootings across Chicago (as of 2:00 pm on Sunday).

The most recent fatal shooting happened Sunday morning in the Scottsdale neighborhood on the Southwest Side. A male, whose age was unknown, was shot in the back about 5:22 a.m. in the 7700 block of South Kilbourn, according to Chicago Police. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The circumstances of the shooting weren’t immediately known.

Hours earlier, a man was killed and another was wounded in a shooting in the South Side Gresham neighborhood, police said. The men, ages 23 and 33, were standing on a sidewalk at 12:58 a.m. in the 1500 block of West 80th Street when they heard gunfire and realized they’d been shot, police said. The younger man suffered multiple gunshot wounds and the older man was shot in his legs. They were both taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where the younger man was pronounced dead and the older man was listed in good condition.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office didn’t immediately confirm the fatalities.

Another man was shot dead Saturday night in the Far South Side Altgeld Gardens neighborhood. About 8:50 p.m., 28-year-old Courvoisier L.M. Thurman was walking on the sidewalk in the 700 block of East 133rd Street when someone fired shots, striking him in the head, police said. Thurman was pronounced dead at the scene. He lived in the same block as the shooting.

Just over a day earlier, a man was killed in a Far South Side shooting that left another man critically wounded, police said.

Kaprice Griffin, 19, of Joliet, and an 18-year-old man were sitting in a vehicle about 8:15 p.m. in the 10200 block of South Hoxie when a group of males walked up and opened fire, police and the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said. Griffin was shot in the head and the younger man suffered a gunshot wound to the back. Both were taken to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where Griffin was pronounced dead at 11:58 p.m. and the other man was listed in critical condition.

The most recent nonfatal shooting happened Sunday morning in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side. A 37-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the thigh about 5:45 a.m. in the 4500 block of South Hermitage, police said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital, where his condition was stabilized. The circumstances of the shooting weren’t immediately known.

Last weekend, five people were killed and three others were wounded in shootings across the city.

  1. The people of Chicago should request that Obama’s presidential library be erected in a cemetery, considering how many Chicagoans his gun policies have sent there.😎

  2. Unfortunately, the idiots who advocate gun control actually believe it’s the guns available OUTSIDE the city that is the problem, and that the solution is to make guns illegal EVERYWHERE else. And then, only then, will there be peace in places with strict gun control.

    They also advocate, the ones I know, that they would be more than happy to die by bullet as martyrs for the cause.It has not been tested, so far as I know.

  4. Legalize drugs and the crime and murders drop by 75% overnight. But the CIA And FBI will then have to find other means of income to fund their manufactured terrorist FF operations.

  5. Will the March for Our Lives march be about stopping violence in Chicago, too? (Probably not, just about banning guns and how evil the NRA is– like its funders/supporters want.)

  6. And it’s still cold February.

    Interesting stats broken down all sort of different ways.

    Note that February is the slowest month for shootings.

    Peak violence was 17 killed in one weekend:

  7. As improbable as it sounds, Henry Gruver was used by the Holy Spirit to deal with this type of problem in Grand Rapids with incredible results. Maybe we need to listen to what he shares, and start applying it –

  9. Funny, the folks in Chiraq never cared about their people being shot, until Moms Demand Action came into play (along with their continued backlash against Trump):

    “Thousands of people descended on Chicago’s downtown to demand action from Congress to tighten the nation’s gun laws. The group, a cohort that included Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, walked from Federal Plaza, stopping at Daley Plaza in the Loop, before walking to Trump Tower, a symbolic location as the President maintains residence in Washington.

    Participants held up signs, many of them directed at the National Rifle Association, a national advocacy group for gun rights.”

  10. There is too much self hate and ignorance among many young blacks in Chicago. Those who hate themselves have absolutely no love for anyone else.The ignorant believe that they are proving how tough they are.(Gangster rap lyrics and drug use are destroying these fools) As far as gun control goes, the good guys and the rule followers are the only ones affected. Criminals don’t give a damn about Gun control. The idiots aren’t afraid of Jail because all their friends and gang affiliates are already there. Its a family reunion and the only order that any of them ever will know is the Prison system.

  11. They’d spend a lot less energy and money if they would just turn in their neighbor/cousin/brother/etc. Everybody knows what everybody is doing. Somebody wants it this way.

  12. Somebody does want it this way; Obama, Rahm Emmanuel and others. As far as turning people in, firstly, you’d have to know who did what to whom and secondly, who’s going to protect you after you tell on someone? The Police? Police informants have been killed on several occasions. Honestly Most black people i know are afraid of the police, whether the fears are warranted or not, its true. A heavy Police presence would stop this crime wave in an instant.Why aren’t there more Police on the street in high crime areas? as the saying goes “they only kill each other”. So yes, somebody does want it this way.

  13. Frankly, I don’t care about Chicagos problems. Not about its poverty, not about its crime rate and certainly not about its murder rate. I care about people enough to practice tough love. They created this problem, they’re quite willing to live with it and much like an alcoholic who has to hit absolute rock bottom before admitting he has a problem Chicago must be turned loose! It will either sink or swim but the decision will ultimately be its own.

    “Students who engaged in violence, drug sales, robberies, burglaries, theft and other various crimes were intentionally kept out of the criminal justice system. County administrators and School Superintendents told local and county law enforcement officers to stop arresting students.”

  18. Ummm,.

    Well, OK, it’s just a thought, but I noticed that, the ,..’shootees,.. are are all, identified as a,..’man’ or,..’male’,..,,..,…


    In no case, is the,.. race,.. of the shootee mentioned,..

    So,..My question would be, .

    Why is it important that we know, the biological gender of the shootee, but , at the same time , it is un-important as to the ,..race,..of the shootee,.?

    I mean, why is it necessary to identify the shootees by gender, anyway, but not by race.?
    I mean, what is the difference, as far a the story is concerned as to whether the shootee is a man or a woman,


    I have noticed, that,very often, in such stories,, ..’IF’,.. the victim just happens to be Jewish, then, that fact is very often included in the story/
    So, sure, I understand, that the news media is under total Jewish control, but, surely that fact would not effect how news stories are covered,..would it,.?

    Ya think,.?
