Default Ill. Woman Killed Same Day Sister Sat Behind Obama

Not sure where to post this, but this will likely be another media blitz. It happened about 20 miles east of me in the northern suburbs of Chicago - outside of the jurisdiction of Chicago and Cook County's oppressive gun laws. The suburb of North Chicago is not a friendly place, and for any Navy personnel, you know it well as the home of the Great Lakes Naval Training Center, where every new recruit starts their service.

Once again - tragic, unintended victim, that I don't see how the gun control measures would protect against keeping guns out of the hands of criminals/gang banger. There are inaccuracies in the story below, as the shooting did not happen in Chicago, so it wouldn't add to the murder count. And I'm not sure how it occurred a mile from the Chicago home either. Once again, the media can't get the story right.

An 18-year-old Chicago woman was killed the same day her sister had sat on the stage behind President Barack Obama, listening to him push for gun control legislation.

Janay Mcfarlane was shot once in the head around 11:30 p.m. Friday in North Chicago, Lake County Coroner Thomas Rudd told the Chicago Sun-Times ( Mcfarlane, a mother of a 3-month-old boy, was in the Chicago suburb visiting friends and family.

"I really feel like somebody cut a part of my heart out," Angela Blakely, Mcfarlane's mother, said.

Blakely said the bullet that killed Mcfarlane was meant for a friend.

Hours earlier, Mcfarlane's 14-year-old sister was feet from Obama at Hyde Park Career Academy, where he spoke about gun violence and paid tribute to Hadiya Pendleton, the 15-year-old honor student fatally shot last month in a South Side park. Police have said it was a case of mistaken identity, and two people have been charged.

Pendleton's death was one of more than 40 homicides in Chicago in January, a total that made it the deadliest January in the city in more than a decade. Pendleton, a drum majorette, had recently performed during Obama's inauguration and the slaying happened about a mile from his Chicago home.

Blakely told the newspaper that Janay Mcfarlane had been affected by Pendleton's death.

"She always said after Hadiya Pendleton got killed, 'Momma that's so sad,'" Blakely said. "She was always touched by any kid that got killed. She was always touched by mothers who couldn't be there for their babies because they were gone."

Mcfarlane was supposed to graduate from an alternative school this spring, Blakely said, and wanted to go into the culinary arts.

"I'm just really, truly just trying to process it — knowing that I'm not taking my baby home anymore," Blakely said.

Is there any limit to what that bunch will do? They intentionally provided thousands of weapons to Mexican drug lords so they could prove that the US was responsible for gun deaths in Mexico. This is also the guy that says it's OK to kill Americans without their constitutionally guaranteed rights. The question is, would he kill innocent Americans to get support for his anti gun agenda? I'd like to think the answer is no, but I'm not certain. With a liberal congressman calling for murder of NRA members and then not being arrested or even criticized, I'm afraid to even put an NRA sticker on my car window!
