5 Dead, 25 Hurt In 36 Hours In Warm Weather Period In Chicago - cbs2chicago.com 1 Killed; 6 Wounded In 3 Englewood Shootings; Millennium Park Was Reportedly Site Of ShootingCHICAGO (CBS) ― One person is dead and six others were wounded in shootings within a few blocks in the Englewood neighborhood overnight. Record-setting warmth has brought a festive, summerlike mood to Chicago over the past couple of days, but it has also led to a rash of gun violence that has left at least five people dead and at least 25 injured in 36 hours. Fifteen of the victims were shot in just two hours, many of them within a few blocks in Englewood. Early Friday morning, as the temperature dipped only to the 60s, one person was killed and six were wounded in three shootings within a few blocks in the Englewood neighborhood. (article continues & gives some details) Now how in the heck did these shooters get their guns? I was told that Chicago had very strict controls over who could buy guns. You don't suppose the people who shot these people could have aquired their guns illegally do you? I wonder, if Chicago had more legally armed citizens & citizens carrying concealed firearms, would these shooters have been so brazen? My inner logic thinks probably not. Will the politicos in Chicago ever figure out the connection between an unarmed populace & this type of fearless criminal activity, i rather doubt it. I do feel bad for the victims and for those victims to come.
