Every week, we learn on Monday just how many people were shot in killed in Chicago, Illinois… A city with some of the most strict gun control laws in the nation.
Just two weekends ago, 24 were killed in 2 days. Now, that death toll is rising!
At least 43 were injured and 9 were killed over this weekend, including a 6 year old girl and a Chicago Police officer’s son.
Nine people were killed, including the son of a Chicago Police officer, and at least 43 more were wounded in shootings across Chicago between Friday night and Monday morning.
Arshell Dennis III, the 19-year-old son of officer Arshell “Chico” Dennis, was gunned down early Sunday on the Southwest Side.
Just after midnight, Dennis was sitting outside near his home in the 2900 block of West 82nd Street with a 20-year-old man when a gunman walked up and started shooting, according to Chicago Police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
Dennis was shot in the chest and taken to Little Company of Mary Hospital in Evergreen Park, where he died at 12:45 a.m., authorities said. The older man was shot in the arm and chest and taken in serious condition to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.
The weekend’s latest homicide happened Sunday morning in the South Side Park Manor neighborhood.
About 9 a.m., a man was found with multiple gunshot wounds in the 6700 block of South Wabash, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities have not yet identified him.

This is unacceptable and shocking. Citizens in Chicago have no reasonable way of feeling safe, yet law abiding citizens are strictly limited as to how they can defend themselves from criminals.
But President Obama and liberals in Congress wouldn’t dare mention the shootings in Chicago, as it doesn’t help their anti-2nd Amendment agenda.
