TAKE A WILD GUESS: I Wonder Which Major City Led the 4th of July Gun Violence
Posted on July 7, 2014

Which city takes the cake with gun violence for the 4th of July weekend? If you guessed the most dangerous city with the most gun control, you guessed right – Chicago. According to NBC Chicago, the amount of people shot since the holiday began on Friday has risen to 60 with at least 7 killed.

According to NBC Chicago:

Violence in Chicago continued over the Fourth of July weekend with at least 11 people shot in roughly four hours Sunday afternoon, bringing the total number of people shot since the holiday weekend began to more than 60.

At least seven people have been killed over the long weekend.

Most recently, a 21-year-old man was killed and a 19-year-old man was wounded in a shooting in the 5200 block of West Lake Street around 5:40 p.m. Sunday. Police said the two were sitting in a car when someone approached their vehicle and opened fire before fleeing on foot. The 21-year-old man was shot in the head and pronounced dead at the scene. The 19-year-old man was shot in the upper right thigh and was taken to Stroger Hospital in stable condition.

Earlier Sunday, a 20-year-old man was shot sitting in a vehicle around 12:20 a.m. near Montrose Avenue and Malden Street in the city’s Uptown neighborhood when a man walked up and fired shots.

The 20-year-old was transported to Illinois Masonic Medical Center with gunshot wounds to his back and he was later pronounced dead.

Police responding to a call of a person shot around 7:30 p.m. Saturday found an 18-year-old man unresponsive in the street in the 6500 block of South Seeley Avenue. The teen suffered wounds to his upper torso and neck and was transported to Advocate Christ Medical Center in critical condition. He was later pronounced dead, police said.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

Their idiot police chief called for just that, said the US needs more gun control and as usual, blamed anyone who opposes it for the violence.
