Default Is Chicago a gun free zone?

Don't they have laws against having guns there? How did someone get shot?

And still they can't see the real issues

Pendleton's murder was one of three shooting deaths in the city on Tuesday. More than 40 people have been shot dead in Chicago since the beginning of the year. There were 506 homicides in the city last year, a 16 percent increase even as other large cities, like New York, saw murders drop.
Sounds like a nice friendly place....safe too with no one having guns and all.

This is the last bit of the article.

Pendleton's murder was one of three shooting deaths in the city on Tuesday. More than 40 people have been shot dead in Chicago since the beginning of the year. There were 506 homicides in the city last year, a 16 percent increase even as other large cities, like New York, saw murders drop.

“We are awash in guns,” Durbin said, noting that six times as many guns as confiscated in Chicago as in New York each year. We have guns everywhere and some believe the solution to this is more guns. I disagree.”

Really? 40 people shot in a city that has a "gun ban"
What happend to that young lady is horrible, but banning guns is not going to help them.
Just my $.02

Maybe double banning them will make them go away? Triple ban? Can't triple stamp a double stamp!

Lies, all lies.

Nobodys allowed to carry a gun so these shootings must be all lies.

Completely amazing how this can happen in a gun free zone. It's like there are people there that break the law or something.
