This is Chiraq: 7 killed, 42 wounded in weekend shootings across Chicago

This gun violence occurs REGULARLY in strict gun-control Chicago. Yet there are no protests and outrage nor moments of silence for those killed every weekend. And I’m really surprised that the liberals aren’t blaming the NRA.

This is Chiraq: As of Sunday afternoon 4 are dead and 36 were shot in holiday weekend shootings

putthegunsdownlg

Keep in mind that this month the good mayor Rahm Emanuel started a “Put the Guns Down” initiative. A “Put the Guns Down” event was held this weekend, which apparently had zero impact on Chiraq.

The Memorial Day weekend technically ends on Monday. Expect these numbers to go up since I originally scheduled this on Sunday morning (when 3 were fatally shot and 12 others were shot).
