We think it’s high time the media planted themselves in Chicago to remind us how violent the president’s home town is. Thus far in the so-called “national conversation” about guns there’s been no conversation about Chicago.
Two shootings on the South and West sides left three people dead and two wounded at 2:15 and 4 a.m. Saturday morning.
Three men were shot outside of a diner at the corner of Wallace Street and Pershing Road in the Bridgeport neighborhood about 4 a.m. Saturday. Two men died at the scene.
At the north end of the 1100 block of South Mozart Street in the Lawndale neighborhood, two people were shot. One also died there, police said. That happened about 2:15 a.m.
Meanwhile, opponents of the Second Amendment have a rally planned in the City of Blood today. Hopefully nobody gets whacked during it. Would make for bad optics.
