First I’d like to wish my mother-in-law a very happy birthday.
Hope it was a good one. As for it being Friday, I only know
this because we went grocery shopping.
Since my brain fog lifted the recent school shooting came to
the forefront and some conclusions made. Again, we extend our
condolences to family and friends of the victims. Yet it now
seems the FBI had known about the shooter and didn’t pass said
information to the local branch.
And I decided to check on homicides in Chicago on another hunch
and found interesting, but not unexpected numbers. Since the
beginning of the year 271 people have been shot and 52 of those
died as a result. Yet not a peep out of the media or outraged
politicians shouting ‘no more’.
Of course Chicago has strictest gun control laws in our nation.
So with all these gun laws in effect one would think it would
be a much safer place. Or at least that it would have less gun
violence than a war zone.
So according to outraged politicians and media, gun control
works, but facts state that someone in Chicago is shot every 4
minutes and 6 seconds. Regardless of the strict gun control laws
in Chicago someone is shot and killed every 18 minutes and 6
seconds. Even a blind man can see that something isn’t right
here. And if he can see it so can the media and certain
The figures used here are found on this site for those who
choose to believe these things don’t happen because they didn’t
read about it the newspaper or see it on TV.
Enjoy our Friday as I have been since the brain fog lifted.
