Obama Talks Gun Control in Chicago; Six Shot, One Dead Afterward

Posted by on Feb 16, 2013 at 10:31 am

The make-believe president finally decided to address the out of control gun violence in his hometown Friday before departing on a long-awaited vacation. Apparently nobody was paying attention.

Chicago police were flagged down by a man on the street as they responded to the sound of gunfire Friday night and found a woman lying on the ground, bleeding from gunshot wounds to her upper body.

She and three others were wounded between about 5:55 p.m. and 7:20 p.m. on the South and West Sides, according to Chicago police, among a total of six people shot Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

The woman, whose name and age were not available, was shot in the 1100 block of North Pulaski Road, just a bit south of Division Street in the West Humboldt Park neighborhood about 7:05 p.m., police said. Officers in the area heard the gunfire and headed toward it — that’s when they were flagged down.

The woman, who suffered a wound to her back and a second below her armpit, was talking when taken away in an ambulance but was pronounced dead at Mount Sinai Hospital. She may have been stepped on as people fled the scene, police said.

Four others survived shootings Friday night and Saturday morning.

Guess it could have been worse if Obama didn’t show up, huh?

    Media hides too many details. I want more info. The race of those involved is obvious – it’s Chicago and it’s violence so we know their race. But, was there a dispute over screaming hot Cheetos or a chicken wing? Did someone say something about someone else’s store bought “hair?” Who dissed who? Come on people we have the right to know.

    But I thought Shitcago was a golden utopian paradise full of chocolate fountains and unicorn petting zoos?

    Experts believe that the problem was that our dear leader didn’t precede every sentence with “let me be clear”. This was the obvious cause for the shooting gallery-like appearance.

    If only our dear leader had talked…….even more.

    Maybe he should write an executive order banning shootings. If only one childs’ life is spared………….
