Another Spate of Gun Violence in Chicago

The Chicago Times reports

Chicago police discover a man shot dead within a block of a Southwest Side high school and six others were wounded in separate shootings that occurred across the city in less than 12 hours.

The gun-rights folks pretend it makes no sense when I blame them for this. I don't know what could be more clear than the fact that every weapon used in these Chicago shootings started out the legally owned property of a lawful gun owner.
Pro-gun attitudes against simple, non-intrusive legislation that would help, is what's to blame. This is backed by the NRA and gun manufacturers for the obvious monetary interests that they have. The results are inevitable and disasterous.
And the entire time the gun guys are feigning innocence by saying it's not their fault and they have nothing to do with it.
