Chicago: 862 People Shot in 2018

More Than Six People Injured or Killed By Guns Daily Since January

A “Parkland Massacre” Every Week

These shooting victims do not receive nationwide publicity via corporate media because they are predominantly 1) Poor,  2) Black, 3) Their assailants wield illegally-purchased and/or stolen firearms (unlike Adam Lanza, Nikolas Cruz, and other bogeys) 4) Their municipality’s intensive gun control efforts have failed, and 5) They and/or their assailants do not receive support or abetment from the Democratic National Committee, US Department of Justice, US Department of Homeland Security, FEMA, FBI, BATF, CNN, their state government, corrupt state and local law enforcement agencies, and the Gun Control Lobby

For almost 50 years Chicago has enacted some of the strictest gun control laws among major US cities. Certain pro-gun control news media argue that such restrictions have been relaxed in recent years. Yet this position is disingenuous as it overlooks the fact that such laws are only followed by lawful gun owners in the first place.

5 thoughts on “Chicago: 862 People Shot in 2018”

  1. I wound up on south side of Chicago stuck in rush hour gridlock. I had no GPS to bail me out, just a map. I was running low on gas and jumped off the interstate to fuel and find an alternate route. When I got out of the car my head was on a swivel. I felt like a lame wilder-beast separated from the herd and surrounded by hyenas. It was maybe the third time I’ve ever felt truly naked without a gun. Our system created this never ending ghetto? If I lived here I would carry a gun no matter the laws. That’s why there’s so much gun violence, the have and have nots… people that have guns verses people that don’t. You must own a gun to survive here in the concrete jungle. Why do cities always polish certain parts while two blocks away it looks like an urban war zone? It’s a facade to hide the failure of our system. Baltimore is very much the same… one minute you are in the shiny Inner Harbor but as the light rail heads north you’ll see areas you wouldn’t send your worst enemy at night.

  2. I like the way this is formatted.

    A “Parkland Massacre” Every Three Days

    I do not know the textbook journalism student instruction about using emotionally laden words in an article, but I have always wanted the word ‘massacre’ to either be not used at all or maybe a phrase containing the phrase preceded by the word alleged.

    I just think use of neutral words and phrases conveys objectivity and quality reporting, where the reader / viewer is appealed to on the basis of data and facts known rather than biased positions.

    I realize that when the entire event is fake, phony and false in every way, it becomes difficult to be consistent in choosing neutral wording.

    I looked up the official meaning of the word ‘massacre’ and only found this.

    “School massacres are counted as incidents involving at least two deaths, excluding the potential death of the perpetrator.”

    That definition is specific to the data and the report published at
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_school_massacres_by_death_toll
    List of school massacres by death toll
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    international school events with Parkland Florida event included.

    Other words that cause me to stop reading an article include
    rampage
    attack
    tragedy
    shooting spree
    opened fire
    chilling
    horrifying, horrific, horrible
    gun violence, mass gun violence
    slaughtered
    heartbreak

    1. Will have to change the wording to “more than one Parkland incident per week, since according to authorities 34 individuals were shot at MSD, half of these
      were fatalities.

  3. MSD Marjorie Stoneman Douglas

    I agree with all but one of the five reasons stated why
    “These shooting victims do not receive nationwide publicity via corporate media ..”

    I question
    “4) Their municipality’s intensive gun control efforts have failed…”

    I all depends on how you define the word “failed.”

    I think the entities pushing for “stronger” gun control regard themselves as having greatly succeeded.

    Also, I think a reason these individual shootings/deaths on the streets of Chicago and other cities is kept nebulous in the reporting is that this whole promotion of gun control is best kept in the collective, that is, only use words like “massacre” when referring to a mass shooting event, not individual shooting events on the streets. Those individual shootings need to be kept out of the conversation.

    But as you write, when you look at the large numbers of these individual shooting events in one week in one city, correct observation is that these are really “mass shooting events.”

    Another reason to keep discussion collectivized is that, to the controllers, individual lives do not matter. Shooting and killing of individuals does not matter to the gun control issue.

    Second Amendment Sister just sayin’.
