BREAKING: 4 Dead, 60 Others SHOT In THIS City… Here’s Why Obama’s SILENT

4 people were killed and 60 injured, including two children in Obama’s ‘hometown’ of Chicago over the weekend in spite of having some of the toughest gun gun laws in America. Those numbers are up from last year.

WGNTV reports that Taniyah Williams, 5,  and her cousin Corey Bondurant, 8, were both shot in a leg while playing with a group of kids on the South Side Monday night. Police say they were among dozens of people outside on the 5500 block of South Hermitage when someone emerged from a gangway and opened fire. Taniyah was released from the hospital but Corey is slated to undergo surgey, although he’s expected to recover. Police say the shooting appeared to be gang-related but it’s not clear who was being targeted.

The two children were among 32 people shot during a surge of violence between 12 p.m. Monday and 3 a.m. Tuesday.

It came after CPD Superintendent Eddie Johnson discussed what seemed to be a decrease in violence as late as Monday. He attributed the change to 88 suspected gang members arrested Friday and 27 on Thursday during police raids. Most were charged with drug and weapons offenses.

But despite a significant police presence there was no stopping dozens of shooting incidents overnight Monday, mainly on the city’s South and West sides.

Michael Reagan, the oldest son of Ronald Reagan, wrote this about gun violence in an article on TownHall, and it’s powerful…

The only solution liberals have for ending gun violence in the cities is to take away everybody’s guns.

But Chicago already has some of the country’s toughest gun laws. They obviously don’t bother the local drug lords.

No one ever wants to address the underlying cause of the violence in our inner cities.

It’s not the presence of guns. It’s the absence of fathers in the homes of the gang-bangers who are using guns to shoot each other.

The numbers are depressing and well known. Nearly 2 in 3 black children grow up in homes without a father present. One in three Latino kids do.

We can thank the liberals and their 1960s welfare programs for many of these broken families.

It was their “War on Poverty” that gave unmarried mothers financial independence, made fathers superfluous and undermined the formation of two-parent families.

Fathers were let off the hook for their baby making and disappeared from family life. Mothers and grandmothers raised the children.

And when the fatherless boys grew up they did what children born into broken families often do. They went out and found their own substitute families on the streets. We call them gangs.

But no matter what we do to toughen gun laws, upgrade our mental health services or increase the number of citizens with gun-carry permits, we will never prevent every future crazy person from murdering innocent people if that’s what he is determined to do.

As I’ve written in this column before, in a country of 315 million people and nearly as many guns, “crazies happen” — and there’s nothing we can do to stop them.
