In Which Obama Fails To Mention A Single Instance Of Gun Violence in Chicago
On the same day as the Newtown massacre, 10 people were shot in Chicago. Yet today as Obama listed recent gun violence in America in order to justify gun control, he failed to mention a single instance in the windy city.
First, some statistics from Iowahawk.
Chicago, pop. 2.6 million. Iowa, pop. 3.1 million. More murders in Chicago since Jan 1, 2012 than in Iowa since Jan 1, 2002.—
