Chicago: 446 school age children shot so far this year with strongest gun laws in country – media silent

SunShine 2012/12/20 16:07:57

The cesspool known as Chicago probably has the toughest gun laws in the country, yet despite all the shootings, murders, and bloodshed, you never hear a peep about this from the corrupt state run media. In Chicago, there have been 446 school age children shot in leftist utopia run by Rahm Emanuel and that produced Obama, Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, etc. 62 school aged children have actually been killed by crazed nuts in Chicago so far this year with almost two weeks to go. So why isn’t this news worthy? Is it because it would embarrass those anti second amendment nuts who brag about Chicago’s tough gun laws? Is it because most of the kids who were shot and killed were minorities? Or is it because the corrupt media doesn’t want to show Chicago in a bad light?

    ...one last thing, and I know that it is just a detail, but the second set of data is titled '446 School Age Children....' but goes all the way down to ages 4, 3 and 1. I don't think that group counts as school age children. Although the number of children shot in these age groups is fairly low, it adds another lay of amateurism when it comes to collecting and presenting data...and it makes one wonder how many other numbers are wrong and by how much.
  • SunShine Osama M... 2012/12/26 07:15:48
    there are kindergarten and pre kindergarten kids in school?? you didn't know that? maybe things are different in CA?

    "School-age children' are generally considered ages 6-12....or from K-6th grade...here are some different websites that enforce this point....one is from a children's hospital and the other is from parenthood.com and the other is from the government of Virginia's 'School Age Child' Program.


    So, the title of the chart you posted is really stretching the definition of 'School Age Children' by including 1-18 year olds....when many other more credible and non-partisan sites defining this group as ages 6-12 or K-6th grade.

    And NO this isn't a matter of me being in California (c'mon) as much as it is the people who created this chart being either loose or possibly using sensational terminology to further enforce their bias on top of their data not being clearly identifiable.
  • SunShine Osama M... 2013/01/04 16:03:00
    school age children are the ages of children going to school.. is there something wrong with your brain? Kids from age 4 and 5 to age 18 and 19 are school age children..
  • Osama M... SunShine 2013/01/04 17:30:59

    I just gave you 3 hard and fast examples of what major organizations (including the State of Virginia) consider 'School Age Children'...and it is not 4-18.

    The fact is, you (and this sloppy study) are making up your own definition in order to fit your political message on this subject. Case closed. NEXT!
  • SunShine Osama M... 2013/01/05 06:49:05
    lol.. sorry.. you don't make the rules.. school age children range between 4 or 5 and 18.. you can go by any study you wish.. in any state.. I am simply quoting the facts in most of them... lol.. arrogant liberals!!
  • SunShine Osama M... 2012/12/26 07:36:29
    I did not write this article.. the link shows the writer and publisher of it however.. I simply used it as a blog to ask a question..
    I agree that someone could do some better organization of the facts and sources.. that said.. regarding the statement you made about the liberal-democrat plantation.. while it does make a statement.. you cannot find fault if it is true.. and it is. Have you not followed the violence of the youth in this city?? I do not think it is a slur.. but rather a statement of fact.. please prove me wrong.
    As for this last statement.. there are figures but they weren't part of this article but it was mentioned several times that the murder rates have increased steadily since gun restrictions are in place.. There are many studies about this subject.. from many universities and other sources that are very credible and have a lot of data available.. even around the world.. they all show that restricting guns or not permitting their ownership increases crime and murder and not restricting them decreases crime and murder.. there are many examples of proof of that including our own DC and Chicago..

    You said:
    "...there are figures but they weren't part of this article but it was mentioned several times that the murder rates have increased steadily since gun restrictions are in place."

    The figures below were compiled by a direct source. They come from the Chicago Police Department's 'Murder Analysis Report'. They show that the murder rate has dropped SIGNIFICANTLY over the last 21 years. If, as you claim above, that murder rates have steadily increased since gun restriction was in place.....how do you account for these number below that show a significant decrease in homicide? (Remember, these numbers are coming right from the police department and not a blog.)

    This chart comes from page 7 on this report

    First I will like to start off by saying thank you for the link. The numbers you put Are "Total number Of Murders" not total amount with firearms. There is another chart "Figure 10:Percentage of Murders That Were Shootings and Stabbings, 1991 to 2011" it shows that since 1991 murders with guns went UP and with knives it went DOWN it seems to me that they are trading in thier knives for guns
  • SunShine someguy 2013/01/04 16:04:05
    thank you.. that is the point of this article.. gun murders are up.

    Great post! We should absolutely always defer to information we get off of a biased internet blog rather than an actual news or academic report. It is has been proven time and time again that facts and information from right wing blog are always credible and never twisted or misleading.

    If you didn't bother to click on the link, here is the opening line from the blog this was taken from:

    "For those asking for a "source", obtaining the source or proof you require will take some work on your part,..."

    No kidding? I bet the blogger that created this was able to sew together some very creative facts in order to prove his point.
  • SunShine Vitamin K 2012/12/25 20:52:38 (edited)
    yes.. well we are quite used to liberals like yourself trying to pretend that reality doesn't exist.. however.. you forgot to post the rest of the sentence...
    Starting with what you posted above.. "for those of you asking for a source... it continues..
    UPDATE: For those asking for a "source", obtaining the source or proof you require will take some work on your part, it continues....
    "but I'll point you in the right direction. First on the right hand side of this blog you will find two links, one is "A MURDER" the other is "A SHOOTING". You can click on them and find the ones involving children and if you don't trust CIC you can Google each heading for proof..

    UPDATE: 3 more school age children shot in Chicago over the past day. Total school age children shot in Chicago now stands at 449
    The two girls, 16, shot in Pilsen
    Two men18 and 26 shot in Beverly View

    UPDATE: 2 more school age children shot in Chicago over the past day. Total school age children shot in Chicago now stands at 451
    Gun shots ring can you hear them / flashing lights in the distance / it's a beautiful sight another gang banger gun fight / walking in the Chicago wonderland ... 6 shot within hours.

    Perhaps if there were more permits to carry some of this would go away. But this story also needs more back ground.
  • FairLady 2012/12/23 18:24:50
    Excellent poll, Sunshine.

    I CAN believe the incidents WERE true. Due to the liberal nature of Chicago I do believe they adapted a strong gun law... And so? it 's made a negative affect. Of course media is silent... I am not surprised... because media supports liberals who want to kill the 2nd amendment. It's not in media's benefit to make a noise about these Chicago cases.
  • texasred 2012/12/23 18:05:41
    The problem with the left is that this isn't about the children... it's about control. The death of these children are seen as a means to an end more than a terrible tragedy.

    Jesse Jackson would be screaming racism for reporting this. I would say that most of the killing was done by Blacks and Hispanics and the victims are primarily Black and Hispanic.

    The older kids were probably killed by gangbangers; keeping in mind that one can be killed for refusing to join a gang.

    Actually it says "School Age Children' but then goes on to list children 4, 3 and 1 years old in the second set that talks about children who were shot.

    The data source also doesn't list if the children where shot by accident, by purpose or if they committed suicide using a gun (unfortunately teenage suicide by gun is not uncommon).
  • lm1b2 2012/12/21 22:53:33
    They don't care about Ghetto children evidently,if they did Obama would have secured the Mexican Border to stop the flow of drugs which is what all these killings are about!Go after the Gun Dealers who are selling these people weapons would help!
  • macbeth 2012/12/21 22:10:47
    I live in the UK and even I was aware of the level of gun violence in Chicago.
    So, where's the big media cover-up.

    not like the sad happenings of last week.. maybe in the Tribune and other local papers.. but not across the country..
  • babibumer SunShine 2013/01/18 03:08:23
    Yes - across the country. I live in Florida and I'm very aware of all the gun violence in Chicago.
  • SunShine babibumer 2013/01/18 04:48:05
    well maybe in the past year because it happens everyday.. but not so much before that..

    You people in the US are "Special" and number one in all things, math, science, and engineering. You should be given a hand gun at birth and taught to shoot when you are strong enough to pull the trigger. Your crime and murder rate would be zero then. If those teachers and children were armed with automatic weapons then the body count would have been different. The NRA should become a political party and lead your country into your next and greatest era. You are the best-est nation in the world and the rest of the other nations are just jealous.
  • mind-pilot Peter G... 2012/12/21 22:12:20

  • hatter Peter G... 2012/12/22 03:12:35
    I guess we'll just take that as a compliment. Thank you.
  • SunShine Peter G... 2012/12/23 04:26:53
    thank you for the honesty.. and it is a fact.. the more gun possession the lower the crime and even murder rates.. but what we do need in this country is a change in our societal attitudes.. degradation has had a negative effect on our kids .. along with the liberal progressive tools of afirmative action and political correctness.. We need to address those issues as quickly as possible.

    The Windy City need to change there nickname to Children Death Zone! ! ! Chi-town need an enema! ! ! The President need to sent in a tactical force and removed all for the undesirable thuggish and corrupted politicians out of the city. Especially if he is thinking about building his presidential library there.
