Rahm-tastic: Six Shot, Five Fatally, Over 12 Hour Span Last Night in Chicago, the Gun Control Capital of the U.S.

The Second City, with gun control laws so outrageous that the Supreme Court struck them down, basically prohibits law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves with firearms.

Which doesn't seem to be working out too well, if the last -- oh -- 50 or 60 years are any indication.

Six people were shot and five of them died during a bloody 12-hour period between 4 p.m. Thursday and 4 a.m. Friday, according to Chicago police.

Among the dead: two men in their early 30s in a gang-related slaying on the Southeast Side, a 22-year-old former CPS basketball player who recently committed to a Division 1 school for basketball, a 35-year-old clerk at a West Side gas station and a 25-year-old man killed in a drive-by attack in the Park Manor neighborhood...

A 22-year-old Chicago man [Micheal Haynes] who recently committed to play basketball at a Division I school died after he was shot trying to break up a fight over a necklace Thursday afternoon, according to family and authorities... Haynes, a 6-foot-7 inch forward was set to play basketball for the 2012-2013 school year in New Rochelle, N.Y., for the Iona College Gaels, according to a statement from the school.

...The lone survivor of the violence was a 14-year-old boy who was shot in the 6700 block of South Carpenter about 11 p.m., police said. He was shot in the arm and torso and treated at Comer Children’s Hospital for his wounds, police said.

As I said the other day, an Aurora massacre occurs every 10 days in Chicago. And no one in vintage media cares.

Strange how criminals don't obey laws, eh? But I'm sure the Democrats' policies are for the children, no matter how many children have to die trying to prove their point.

Hat tip: The incredible

Media doesn't care about the gun control carnage in Chicagoland because:

They aren't getting shot at.

Money insulates them from the consequences of the policies they advocate for everyone else.

They don't care about poor black people.
