The shooting rampage that took place in Odessa and Midland, Texas is getting all the press, but the violence in Chicago was just as bad, if not worse.
Labor Day weekend was not even over, and in the city of Chicago, already more than two dozen people were shot, with seven fatalities, according to Breitbart.
Late Saturday night and all day Sunday, all the media could talk about was the shooting spree that took place in West Texas.
Normally, the shooting would have been called a rampage, but the media purposely called it a mass shooting to create more outrage.
A man was stopped by local officers for a minor traffic violation, and he responded by not only firing at the officers but by firing at random cars and pedestrians in two different cities as he led the officers on the chase.
As of the latest reports, 21 people were wounded and seven were killed. Among the wounded was a 17-month-old little girl, and among the fatalities was a teenager.
Sadly, over the first 36 hours of Labor Day weekend, that same level of violence took place in Chicago. Early Saturday morning, a 41-year-old man was shot and killed. Just a few hours later, a teenager was shot and killed.
Roughly one hour after that, two men were shot to death and three others were wounded. Early Sunday morning, a 15-year-old was shot and killed only 20 minutes before another man was shot and killed at a party.
Before the sun came up, another man would be murdered, this one the victim of a drive-by shooting.
At the time of the report, there were still roughly 36 hours left in the weekend, so that total could very well be doubled, just as we predicted several days ago.
Mass shootings and rampages are horrific, nobody is denying that fact, but the violence that goes on in big cities like Chicago is just as unacceptable.
Democrats always cry for gun reform after mass shootings, but the city of Chicago is proof that tough gun laws don’t work. If they did, cities like Chicago, Baltimore, and Philadelphia would not regularly rank among the top murder rates in the country.
