Town Hall –
Gun control in Chicago worked really well over the Independence Day holiday weekend as 82 people were shot and 14 were killed in multiple deadly gang rampages. More from the Chicago Tribune:
Five of the people were shot by police over 36 hours on Friday and Saturday, including two boys 14 and 16 who were killed when they allegedly refused to drop their guns.
Many of the long weekend’s shootings were on the South Side, clustered in the Englewood, Roseland, Gresham and West Pullman neighborhoods that rank among the most violent in the city.
