Chicago is run by power hungry and greedy corrupt demonrats. Their platform is to confiscate a law abiding citizen's gun so only their base of thugs will be the only ones to have guns. How else can they become dictators and amass billions for themselves?

If the politicians and leadership in Chicago really wanted to stop this they could. I'm sure there are some retired military/special ops who could get to the root of the problem if allowed to do the job. Somewhat unrelated, but I never understood the societal acceptance of the crimes committed in prisons. It's a CONTROLLED environment with cameras everywhere and armed security. It is allowed to happen.

The left is so quick with their racist accusations when their lack of attention paid to inner city weekend massacres is the personification of racism. Perhaps black lives are less important to them.

The enemedia and the politicians don't give a fig about this which occurs in every major demonrat run city every single weekend. It's just blacks killing other blacks so what's the big deal, right demonrats? And it doesn't fit the narrative of all whites are racist and the root of all evil. While PDT is calling out the rat and drug infested filth in Cummings' Baltimore, he should make a point of reading the dead and wounded totals in every demonrat run city each Monday morning and then ask the mayors and representatives of those cities why they let this continue. And he should pointedly ask if the reason they don't try to fix it is because all the perps and all the victims are blacks who now have been shoved to the back of the bus in favor of illegal aliens.

Every weekend and this JUST Chicago. Add in Baltimore Philly and DC and the total will be shocking. What? No week long yelling by the media for gun control? There's your actual racism folks. Black children shooting black children is just ho-hum. Gun control? Chicago has plenty of that. Black lives matter? Apparently only when the police are involved. If one of these city councils decided to actually ACTIVELY go to work on a solution they probably wouldn't eliminate this scourge but they could sure as hell mitigate it.

This has to be a record. I don't remember the number ever being that high. Should somebody be celebrating? What is wrong with the Chicago Police? (rhetorical question) You ignore smaller crimes like that of Jussie Smollett so you might as well ignore murder. Fine, if that's your choice. Our choice is to never go to Chicago for any reason.

It's in a black's DNA to destroy. Nothing in their life is meaningful. All that brotherly love business is a hoax. A killing over a basketball dispute next will be to steal a happy meal or the sneakers they are wearing. A black with a gun is going to use it even if they have to try it on another family member, it's what they do. If Barack Obama himself knocked a door in a black neighborhood and asked them to stop the killings he would more than likely be shot for just standing there. Black thugs in Chicago are making Al Capone and his group look like pikers when it comes to murder and mayhem.

Chicago year to date: 1,629 shot, with 274 killed and 1,355 wounded. Of the 274 killed, 255 were black, or 82%. Excluding police and lawful self-defense shootings, where the shooter’s race was known, 17 shooters were black, 4 were Hispanic, and 1 was white. Nationwide, 52% of murders in America are committed by African Americans, who make up only12% of the population. But we are told that white nationalists are today’s new domestic terrorist bogeymen. Where are all the stories on national media demanding action against Black and Hispanic shooters? We will do anything to avoid facing the real problem. There is an element within African American culture that praises and rewards ignorance, promiscuity, illegitimacy, violence, and failure. At the root are a failure to teach and reward self control, and fatherless families. No amount of cash reparations will fix this cultural pathology. The real threats to civil order in America come from African American culture, and organized Black and Hispanic drug gangs and car jacking crews shooting it out in the streets. Random white nut jobs are little more than a blip.

I am surprised that the Progressives/Democrats missed this opportunity to scream, "Trump is responsible for these shootings." Perhaps because it was black on black crime they could not figure out how say it "racist terrorism" committed by "white nationalist." Since all of the guns used were illegal, it only proves that anti-gun laws do nothing to prevent shootings. And, since Progressives/Democrats and the MSM have been silent about these shooting, it shows that they care nothing about the victims, when it does nothing to promote their agendas.

Chicago - the hallmark of gun laws or "gun safety" as they now call it. No guns allowed but 59 people shot on one summer weekend. As noted by other posters, dead black people don't matter to Democrats because they can still "harvest"their votes.

With leftists seeking to blame the El Paso shooting on President Trump, guns, white people and whatever other boogieman will help score political points, a simple fact should be understood: Murder is a Democrat thing. We can start with the striking statistic that 68 percent of all homicides occur in just certain parts of 5 percent of America's counties — and all, or virtually all, of these are Democrat areas. Also striking is Democrats' devolution on prenatal infanticide. The line always was, though the savvy never believed it, "We want abortion to be safe, legal and rare."

While the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and other experts routinely underestimate the costs of government spending programs by huge amounts, they severely underestimate receipts and economic results when there are across the board tax cuts. The data are readily available, and they show that after the Reagan and Bush major tax cuts, the economy improved rapidly – and tax receipts shot up. Yet in all projections the CBO assumes receipts will go down and the economy won’t expand much because of the cuts. CBO said that the Trump tax cuts would cost the government $1.5 Trillion over ten years, but revenues are already rising

Garcia-Siller said there was “no justifiable explanation for such scenes of horror.” But what was clear to the archbishop, who recently supported migrants and asylum seekers crossing the southern border, was that President Trump’s “invasion” rhetoric against Hispanics, language echoed in a manifesto police believe was posted by the alleged El Paso gunman, helped create a climate that led to the tragedy. The 62-year-old archbishop

When it comes to gun control, conservatives have been fortunate in their enemies. Every time there is a mass shooting, the left renews its calls for gun control, but it spends a great deal of energy on futile and ahistorical arguments about the wording of the Second Amendment, or making hackle-raising, invidious comparisons with Europe. And when it comes time to actually suggest what should be done, Democrats generally suggest policies recycled from the 1994 crime bill, such as background checks and a ban on assault weapons. There’s little evidence that these policies did anything to curb gun violence the first time
