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.
