348 school age children shot in Chicago with 74 killed in 2013

rahm-emanuel-3With two weeks to go in 2013, 348 school children have already been shot in Rahmville Chicago. 74 of these kids have been killed. This is an astonishing 12 more school age children who have died as a result of gun shots than over 2012′s sixty two. Also keep in the mind, this was the latest available statistics, which was right before Thanksgiving. Hadiya Pendleton was the first known victim of the year. She got national attention when Michelle Obama tried to capitalize on her death to push her gun control agenda. All of this in Chicago, the leftist plantation where guns are strictly controlled. Chicago’s Democrat politicians always like to brag how strong their gun control laws are. As you can see, the tough gun laws in this leftists cesspool haven’t prevented 74 kids from being killed by gun shots. Not by legal gun owners, but usually by gang bangers who shouldn’t be allowed to have guns in the first place according to the law. But as leftists will tell you, these gangbanging thugs will follow the laws if you just restrict access to guns for legal gun owners even more.

You may remember Hadiya Pendleton. She was a girl who performed with her high school band at Obama’s second inauguration. She was shot and killed in Chicago back in January as the year got off to it’s violent start in the ‘Windy City.’

Of the 74 children killed in Chicago, a handful were killed with objects other than firearms:

18-year-old man shot dead in South Chicago
17-year-old boy shot dead in Little Village
18-year-old man shot dead in Englewood
17-year-old boy shot dead in Albany Park
16-year-old among 3 slain in South Shore
Man, 18, dies after Southwest Side stabbing
17-year-old boy shot dead in Grand Crossing
Englewood infant beaten to death 4 mon
18-year-old shot dead in South Shore
Woman killed, boy hurt in extra-alarm fire on Far South Side 8 yr
Girl, 2, dead after car speeds past stop sign
14 year old boy shot dead in Park Manor
Father of girl, 8, grandmother charged in girl’s July murder in Austin
16 year old boy shot dead, 15 year old boy shot
Boy, 17, shot dead in Avalon Park
Boy, 3 months, was beaten to death
17 year old boy shot dead in Washington Park
14-year-old boy shot dead in Garfield Park
17-year-old boy shot dead in McKinley Park
18 year old shot, 18 year old shot dead in Austin

I suppose Chicago could try banning knives too since some were used to kill these children. Maybe Chicago can ban fire alarms next.

So why isn’t any of this news worthy? Sure, Hadiya Pendleton was in the news, but that’s mainly because Michelle Obama tried to capitalize on her tragic death for political gain. So why aren’t these other children’s death newsworthy? Would it embarrass Rahm Emaneul, showing what an epic failure he has been as Mayor of Chicago? Would it show that strict gun laws don’t keep guns out of the hands of criminals? Or maybe the media just doesn’t feel like covering this because most of the kids who were shot and killed were minorities killed by other minorities? You don’t have the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin angle to play with a ‘White Hispanic’ and a black kid.’ Also notice that there were no Obama crocodile tears either over these deaths, except Michelle Obama with Hadiya Pendleton.
