Chicago’s unrelenting shooting spree continues as up to 25 people were shot and four killed over the last three days.
The mayhem occurred even as protesters gathered in Chicago’s Federal Plaza on Saturday to hold a vigil to end gun violence.
“We need a background check,” Garrett Evans, a South Side Chicago native and survivor of the Virginia Tech massacre, told Fox News. “That’s the reason I was shot, there was no background check, the guy who shot us had a history of mental illness and since he wasn’t red-flagged he was able to buy a gun off the Internet.”
But as violence rages in Chicago, there are reports that Congress will likely be unable to pass a bill expanding mandatory background checks for gun purchases — a provision supported by at least 90 percent of the American public, according to polls.
