And The Chicago Tribune has this one.
A West Side man was charged with attempted murder Sunday in the shooting of his girlfriend this weekend, Chicago police said.
The 21-year-old woman was critically wounded after being shot in the chest about 9:45 a.m. Saturday at the home of Clinton Watkins, 23, in the 500 block of North Lawler Avenue in the Austin neighborhood, police said.
Watkins was charged Sunday with attempted murder and aggravated domestic battery, police said.
An investigation indicated the woman had been shot by her boyfriend in a domestic dispute, Officer Michael Fitzpatrick said.
Chances are in Georgia it was a legally owned gun while in Chicago it was not. But who cares? What's the difference? When men abuse women the gun often makes the difference.
