Don’t Scapegoat Gun Owners for Chicago’s Violent Crime Problem
The last two weeks have brought more evidence that Chicago’s gangland violence continues to spiral out of control.

A van driven by an alleged gang associate pulled up next to the officers and a passenger in the vehicle opened fire.

Two were killed and eight were wounded in what police are characterizing as a gang retaliation shooting.
