1,000+ Shootings in Chicago This Year; Here’s Who Liberals Blame

 So far this year more than 1,000 people have been shot in Chicago despite some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation. As you might expect liberals blame the guns.
The Chicago Tribune reports:
The mother’s cries filled the empty street in Bridgeport as her 17-year-old son lay under a white sheet behind yellow crime tape.
“I just need to touch him,” she cried out. “I just need to see it’s my child. Please.”

Then in a final plea, she screamed, “Just let me get him. Let me get him.”
But a friend held her back, wrapping his arms around her as police took photos of Richard Edwards, who was shot around 2 a.m. Saturday in the 700 block of West 35th Street.
He was one of five people killed in Chicago over the weekend as the number of people shot in the city this year passed 1,000.
Chicago has hit the somber milestone even sooner than the violent year of 2012 when the city saw 500 homicides for the first time since 2008. Shootings that year were up 11 percent.
The city reached the 1,000 mark on June 6 in 2012. In 2013 it was on June 26 and last year it was on June 15.
This year, Chicago passed the mark sometime late Thursday into early Friday morning, according to data collected and analyzed by the Chicago Tribune.
Gun control kills, and only a good man with a gun can stop a bad man with a gun!
