Forty-eight people were shot, nine fatally, over the weekend in Democrat-controlled Chicago.

CBS Chicago reports that the shooting victims included people walking, standing outside gas stations, and standing on sidewalks.

In one of the incidents a 15-year-old, 14-year-old, and a 10-year-old were shot when a Toyota drove by the sidewalk on which they were standing and opened fire. The wounds proven superficial and the three boys “were in good condition at Stroger Hospital.”

The most recent fatality of the weekend occurred just before 5 a.m. Police found a 24-year-old man “dead in the North Lawndale neighborhood.” He had “multiple gunshot wounds, including to his face and head.”

The four dozen victims shot July 26-28 are only the latest in a string of victims in Democrat-controlled Chicago. Breitbart News reported at least 43 where shot, two fatally, over the weekend of July 19-21, at least 41 people were shot, nine fatally, over the weekend of July 12-14, and at least 66 were shot, five fatally, over the Fourth of July weekend. Fifty-six were shot, four fatally, the weekend prior to the Fourth.

You'd think all these gangs would be running out of members with all of them getting shot or killed.

There is something like 1.5 million gang members in the U.S.

So where's Al and Jessie? Why aren't THEY going into the hoods and trying to negotiate peace? After all, it IS THEIR people (as they like to claim)

That it! Something has to be done! The guns laws in Chicago are too lenient! They need to put their pants (or skirts ) on and create more "common sense" gun laws to control these massacres!

Oh wait! Chicago already have severe restricted guns laws, apparently they are not working, could it be that criminals do not obey laws? Nah, that is too simple of an answer to be the main reason for the gun violence.........................................

The spirit in Chicago is awful. Used to do runs in and out of there. The closer in, the worse it got. Had one delivery. Everyone was absolutely full of strife and conflict. Everything aimed at having it out with everyone. Constant chaos. I put up with their S! Told my driver manager to never send me there again.
On the other hand. Had a place that obviously was working against that spirit. Was obvious it existed. They were good. They were trying.
This spirit is the basis of all the homicides. It exists before the killing. It creates the killing.

Labeling gun-violent cities as partisan doesn't really get us anywhere because there is no cause/effect correlation.

While Chicago is often the poster child for gun violence, other cities are worse off. Some of those cities are Republican-controlled.

Here's an analysis from 2016:

Meet the Republicans representing cities with a higher murder rate than Chicago
The point I'm making is that changing parties would do absolutely nothing to address the problem.

I went to the linked article and checked for the Mayors of the highlighted cities as local city leadership gives a more accurate view of the 'problem'.

Chokwe Antar Lumumba (D) is the Mayor of Jackson, MS
Sharon Weston Broome (D) is the Mayor-President of the City of Baton Rouge and East Baton Rouge Parish
John Cranley (D) is the Mayor of Cincinnati, OH
Nan Whaley (D) is the Mayor of Dayton, OH
Pete Buttigieg (D) is the Mayor of South Bend, IN
David Alvey (R) is the Mayor of Kansas City, KS
Bill Saffo (D) is the Mayor of Wilmington, NC
Andy Berke (D) is the Mayor of Chattanooga, TN
