President Barack Obama and his liberal friends in Congress are moving quickly to use the deadly shooting in Orlando, Florida to ban guns.
Somehow, Obama thinks banning assault weapons and limiting handguns has something to do with Islamic terrorism.
But over the weekend – Father’s Day Weekend – in Chicago, Illinois alone, many people were shot and killed. Obama used to be a state legislator from Chicago… Why isn’t he talking about this?
Chicago recorded its 300th homicide this weekend and tallied six others over a 60-hour period that saw 55 people shot, 13 fatally, from Friday afternoon through early Monday morning.
So far this year, close to 1,800 people have been shot across the city and more than 200 of those wounded have died from their wounds, according to records kept by the Chicago Tribune. A total of 306 people have been killed this year, by shooting, stabbing or other means.
A 3-year-old boy was among the wounded who survived the weekend shootings. Police said he’s in critical condition. The 3-year-old was shot in the right shoulder near East 61st Street and South Kimbark Avenue in the Woodlawn neighborhood at 6:15 p.m. Sunday, police said. The boy was in a car seat when an unknown attacker fired shots at the car, police said. People in the vehicle managed to get the boy to University of Chicago Medical Center. He was then transferred to Comer Children’s Hospital in critical condition.
Five people were fatally shot and nine others were hurt between Friday afternoon and Saturday morning. Four of the fatalities occurred in seven hours. The fatalities included a 16-year-old boy who was killed in West Englewood about 9:05 p.m. Friday. He was in the front passenger seat of a car driving through an alley in the 6500 block of South Hamilton Avenue when two males came up and fired shots, according to police.
At least 28 people were wounded, three fatally, in shootings from 8:30 a.m. Saturday to 4:30 a.m. Sunday, the equivalent of somebody shot every 43 minutes. One fatal shooting occurred during a possible murder-suicide in Hyde Park about 9:50 a.m. Saturday, police said. Police responded to the 1400 block of East 54th Street for a well-being check and found a 65-year-old woman with a gunshot wound to the head. A man, 73, also was found shot in the head.
Anti-gun liberals don’t want to talk about Chicago because it’s run by Democrats and has some of the most strict gun laws in America.
Clearly, taking away guns from law-abiding citizens doesn’t stop gun violence. In fact, criminals would rather victims not have weapons to fight back with.
There is evil in this world, and we must be allowed to defend ourselves and our family from criminals. Guns can always respond faster than 911, and they can save lives. As Obama works quickly in his final few months in office to repeal the 2nd Amendment, it is essential that we stand up for the principles of our Founding Fathers.
