Once again, President Barack Obama’s hometown of Chicago, Illinois had a deadly weekend.
Over the long Labor Day weekend alone, 13 people were killed and 65 were shot.
This is something Obama and anti-gun politicians in Congress would never talk about:
After another violent holiday weekend, Chicago police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said Tuesday his department is doing all it can to combat violence rooted in “impoverished neighborhoods” where “people without hope do these kinds of things.”
“It’s not a police issue, it’s a society issue,” Johnson told reporters outside police headquarters after a long weekend that saw 65 people shot, 13 of them fatally.
“Impoverished neighborhoods, people without hope do these kinds of things,” he said. “You show me a man that doesn’t have hope, I’ll show you one that’s willing to pick up a gun and do anything with it.
“Those are the issues that’s driving this violence. CPD is doing its job,” he continued.[…]
Farther south, a retired pastor from East Chicago, Ind. was shot to death outside a senior housing complex in the South Shore neighborhood around 6:30 a.m. Monday.
Police say the man was found dead, shot in the face outside the Senior Suites of Rainbow Beach near 77th and Exchange around 6:30 a.m. Monday. Residents identified the man as Allen H. Smith and said they heard him arguing with another man before shots were fired.
Police said they took into custody another resident of the home. No charges had been filed.

Anti-gun liberals will never focus on Chicago, because the city has some of the strictest gun laws in America.
But despite the laws of Chicago, the city is a war zone. No one in Chicago should feel safe outside.
While most Americans were enjoying the holiday with family and cookouts, Chicago cops were working overtime to handle the endless shootings and murders.
If it doesn’t help politicians, maybe black lives don’t really matter, after all?
