    Surprise!!! Another shooting in by black people on black people. It seems as if they don't the sense god gave geese. They'll contribute to the extinction of their own race.

White and etc be around that neighborhood 2 and you need to check your speling grammer and how your sentance sound before you post something. It makes you look stupid # im black and keeping it real . And so you know not all black people are violent i feel its not the answer but some think different ik my family stays away from trouble do what we have to do if we are in a problem (that does not includ killin!) :) have a good day

    The only gun control in Chicago, is levied against the law abiding, criminals seem to have a free reign in the matter. To put it in terms the Political Royalty of Illinois can understand, Law abiding people don’t break the law, criminals break the law.

    I live in Chicago and i feel like the state needs to take all guns and distroy them because if theirs no guns in the world mostley less killings and people who already have guns sooner or later they will die or get caught and put in jail for breaking the law for ex. in texas they have guns for hunting nothing more in chicago we should have no needs for a gun here because we dont need to hunt animals because ive never seen a bear here i seen deers here and there but they dont bother nobody most of the time their getting hit by cars and trucks if you want meat GO TO THE STORES! those are the only people that should have guns are the state or people who work to get the food for others like the hunters everybody else should just party and worry about their bills and skip what people say you shouldnt be that mad where you shot people. most likely you wont shot the person you want to like they shot the old lady im sure they didnt mean it

    Its not a black or white thing so shut the hell up you racist bastards. Invest more time into education because that's what wrong with this country. People get themselves caught up in social media networks,violence,and their own ignorance. That's what killing not only the community but the whole country. Used to be a great country. We've become the laughing stock of the world and the butt of jokes because of idiots here especially the ones that posted the comments on here. Take that lesson and think about that instead of being racist and trying to kill each other you retards!

    Its postings like these and other ignorant ones that make it so embarrassing to be a United States citizen. Especially living here in Illinois which is the " ASS-CRACK ''of America. I don't hear anyone talking about becoming the solution to the problem. That's what I'm talking about,we just rather become the problem than the solution? Let's put these guns down and pick up a book or dictionary start there.

    I think everyone should fire up a big joint , take it easy , get along with each other, if you would do that , what would be the need for guns.
