What is happening to us?

Man wounded in shooting on Dan Ryan

The Dan Ryan shooting was the third on a Chicago expressway since early Sunday and the twentieth since the start of 2016.

This morning the police can't say if this is random, like the 2003 DC Sniper, or an escalation of road rage or a case of gang retaliation where the wrong target was hit.

My city is literally awash in guns. It sickens me. It frightens me.

I am a single-issue voter, and that issue is guns.

Do not even try to argue that the solution to bad guys with guns is good guys with guns. Look at that window. The truck driver was shot in the face. If he had a gun, how could he have reached for it with a bullet in his mouth?

This was the third shooting on a Chicago expressway this week.

  1. Because of the remote nature of where I live, the gun issue is a totally different issue for us. The hunters around here are rabid, avid gun owners who don't understand the craziness that guns in cities cause. I'm with you, though, and agree that more guns doesn't equal a solution.
