    Only eight days into 2013, Chicago is already on a grim pace to not only continue the bloody trend of an elevated homicide rate -- but to surpass it.

    NBC Chicago pointed out that, as of Sunday, 12 people had been murdered in Chicago this year, which, at a rate of two a day, but the city on a pace for a devastating 730 homicides, higher than any one-year murder total in Chicago since 1997.

    WHERE ARE THE BREAKING NETWORK NEWS STORIES???
    Why is the Houston story big news but Chicago Obama's home town?

    Be patient. It's still early in the year.

    Gun control is working overtime in Chicago... The criminals are hitting the targets they are aiming for.

    12 people murdered in 8 days? In a state with strict guns laws. Good job, liberals. They own Chicago. No Republicans around there to blame, which is why the media doesn't cover it.

    And of course with the "Godfather" as mayor there is every effort to make sure even police stations are "Gun Free Zones"!!!
    Speaking of which ever seen this...

    I guess this is the living embodiment of the effectiveness of strict gun control. I can't help but to wonder if these crimes were committed by a pistol, assault rifle, rifle, or shot gun? I suspect these crimes were committed by right wing irresponsible gun fanatics as well?

    I would say concealment dictates hand gun but my main point is why not the same angst over these 12 murders as shown over the NewTown or Houston??
    What is the distinction?

    The irony is that Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the nation and is virtually a liberal strong hold. No one remains untouched by the occurrence and tragedy of New Town.
