Wonder if this was accidental or somebody who didn't like that this kid was working to eliminate gun violence?

Probably shot by someone who thought they needed a gun to feel all manly and stuff.

Right. Because you know, there can only be one issue to address at a time?

I am sure it was with a legal gun in chicago. They need to outlaw guns and this wouldn't happen.

Tragedy! My deepest sympathies go out to his family. This really does make me so sad. I think this is a scourge which will come to our cities too, it already has to a degree but nothing as bad as Chicago. Guns are to blame, Deny it all you want but if punds didn't have guns this wouldn't be happening in our cities. As it isn't in other nation's cities because they don't think guns are a good idea. Repeal the 2nd amendment and replace it with a reasonable amendment. It's insane.

I wouldn't be surprised if it was an NRA paid for hit either.

Danni, you could get rid of the 2nd amendment completely but guns ain't going anywhere. What part of this do people not get? Meaning those who say guns are the problem.

Do you have any idea just how many guns there are in the world? The argument that 'guns are the problem' has been irrelevant since those words were 1st uttered. Whenever that was.

Then again, maybe it's not necessarily irrelevant to make that argument. But if it isn't, then it means that someone out there who feels guns are the problem has a solution to ridding the planet of them. Don't forget, that means destroying every gun that every military on the planet has.

I mean, if we don't get rid of military weaponry but take guns from citizens..... well, just use your imagination.

That is enough to go around for those that want one.Outlawing guns in the US will work as well as outlawing drugs.

This is what happens when the NRA and the BLM work together. The NRA keeps the easy supply of guns flowing to the criminals and the BLM makes sure that the police are treated like the enemy. The result is lawlessness where criminal gangs rule and violence is out of control, in cities like Chicago, Baltimore, Detroit and D.C. The kid in this story was probably killed by somebody his own age going through a gang initiation ritual or trying to earn their teardrop tattoo.
