Gun Control Not Working in Chicago: 7 killed, 39 wounded in Chicago weekend shootings since Friday 6/24


The corrupt media machine conveniently ignores the gaping hole in the Democrats Party’s argument for more gun control. 
Almost no city in the country has tougher gun control laws than Chicago.  What is the result?  How a record number of homicides in the Windy City for 2016!   It ain’t the guns folks, it’s the lowlifes who use then.  Wake up, please! 

ABC 7Chicago reports seven people were killed and at least 39 more - including a pregnant woman - have been wounded in gun violence across the city since late Friday afternoon, according to Chicago Police.

The most recent fatal attack happened in the Austin neighborhood on the West Side.

Officers responding to a call of shots fired at 5:08 a.m. in the 900 block of North Massasoit found a man unresponsive in the driver seat of a car with a gunshot wound to the chest, according to Chicago Police. He was dead at the scene, according to police, who said his age and identity were unknown Sunday morning.

Earlier Sunday, emergency crews responded at 4:27 a.m. to the shooting near 72nd Street and South Chicago Avenue, where the man had been shot in the chest, police said. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he was pronounced dead. Additional details were not immediately available.

About 1:30 a.m., a 55-year-old man was killed in an East Garfield Park neighborhood shooting that left two women wounded. He was shot twice in the chest and one woman, 35, was shot in the leg in the 700 block of North Ridgeway, police said. The man was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he later died, police said. The woman's condition was stabilized at Stroger Hospital. Another woman, 19, later showed up at a hospital with an ankle wound and was listed in good condition.

The Cook County medical examiner's office did not immediately confirm those deaths.
