Chicago – where gun ownership by the law-abiding civilian is, in defiance of two SCOTUS rulings, still effectively banned – just saw its’ 500th homicide for the year.
That’s two Sandy Hook classrooms a month. Every month.
And of those deaths, about seven or eight classrooms-full were children below age 15. That’s on top of similar numbers the year before, and the several years before that. And next year.
But they were largely black, and brown, and urban; not white and from fashionable zip codes and a lot like the children, nieces and nephews and grandchildren of the people who run our opinion-driving industry. And they lived in a city that spawned our current President, who endorsed every single policy currently in force in a city that is nothing if not a laboratory for modern “progressivism”. So they don’t count.
