25 Shot, 4 Killed in Chicago This Past Weekend, As Gun Control Sits Stalled In Congress

Post By RelatedRelated Post

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.

  1. Realize that Chicago has the strictest gun control laws in the country. If you're ready for more gun violence then make stricter gun laws to keep law abiding citizens from owning guns.

  2. We need a background check? Does that IDIOT not realize that Illinois has had a background check for gunshow and internet purchases for decades? We also have that stupid 3 day waiting period. So once we do purchase the firearm with a background check, we still have to wait 3 days before we can go back and pick it up. Better hope no one's trying to kill you. They got 3 days to get you before you can protect yourself…..We don't need a background check. We got that. What we need is for our brothers in Chicago to STOP ACTING LIKE SAVAGES!

  3. And that poll is a lie. only 1,219 people were asked. That hardly represents 90 percent of americans. Lets do a better job of unbiased journalism…..
