Following a particularly violent Fourth of July weekend, violence in Chicago continued Saturday with 21 people shot overnight, including three people wounded outside a Northwest Side pizza restaurant.
The shooting took place around 10 p.m. Friday in the 6000 block of West Fullerton Avenue when someone opened fire on three people outside Marco’s Pizza in the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood, according to authorities.
Police were combing through evidence during the evening hours and inspecting a delivery vehicle at the scene.
Apparently the de facto, if not de jure ban on the private possession of firearms is continuing to have the usual effect: “Gun free zones” that are in effect free fire zones. I’m betting that most of the victims – as well as most of the shooters – voted for Barack Obama, if they voted at all.
