The pro-gun folks keep using these stories to try and say gun control laws don't work. Well, of course it don't work, since we don't have proper gun control laws in place.A 14-year-old boy, a 12-year-old boy and two other people are dead and at least 18 people were wounded in separate shootings since Friday night, police said.The bloodiest single attack killed a 23-year-old man and wounded five others when a shooter opened fire at a crowd gathered in the 11600 block of South Peoria Avenue at 2:28 a.m. on Saturday. Melvin Jacobs, of the 16200 block of South Paulina Street in Markham, was taken to Advocate Trinity Hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.
What our gun friends are trying to do with those nonsense claims is deflect attention from the fact that one of the primary factors in bloody weekends like this in Chicago is gun availability. It, gun availability, is a direct result of the lack of proper gun control laws which would work to diminish it.
And whose responsible for that? Those very folks who are trying to deflect the argument by blaming the laws. Of course they have some formidable help from the NRA and the gun manufacturers, who benefit from things just the way they are. Dealers in death they are, all of them.
