:(Gunmen kill 8-year-old Chicago girl as she plays
(AP) - 1 hour ago

CHICAGO - Police say two gunmen on bicycles killed an 8-year-old girl and wounded her younger cousin as the children were skipping rope in a Chicago neighborhood.

Deputy Police Superintendent Ernest Brown says the shooting happened Tuesday evening in Roseland on Chicago's South Side.

Brown says the two men rolled up on bicycles, fired, then fled.

There is no word Wednesday on charges in the shooting.

Relatives say the girl killed was 8-year-old Tanaja Stokes. The Cook County medical examiner's office says she was shot in the head.

Relatives say 7-year-old Ariana Jones also was shot in the head, but police say her injuries don't appear to be life-threatening.

Are you saying that the 8 year old would be alive if she was packing? Because, otherwise i am not seeing a point.
I think his point was most Liberals don't understand the disconnect between crime caused by criminals and legal gun owners. The first reaction in a Liberal's eye is to take the guns out of the hands of those who follow the laws they create. The issue is these animals that committed this crime don't legally own the firearm they used to commit the crime..thus not being a legal law-abiding firearm owner, the laws created don't apply to them.

No, it's not what I'm saying (but in Chicago it wouldn't be surprising). I am saying that if law abiding citizens owned guns, the clowns on bikes would think twice before doing a "bike by", because they would never know if some pistol packing mama would take them out.

The killers were on bikes, they were probably older kids with no fear of anything. Where I grew up, kids were often used as shooters because they faced easier penalties.

And no "Liberal" can understand why a law abiding citizen wants to own a firearm?
why must there be political labels involved ? i think "gun haters" would be more appropriate ... no ?

A few definitions from dictionary.com for the term liberal include:

* Favorable to progress or reform, as in political or religious affairs.
* Favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, especially as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.
* Favoring or permitting freedom of action, especially with respect to matters of personal belief or expression: a liberal policy toward dissident artists and writers.

Bastards! They purposely targeted an 8 and 7 year old? Catch 'em, kill 'em, bury 'em...in that order.

Terrible tragedy. I don't think more or less gun restrictions would have prevented this. The perpetrators obviously have more serious mental and moral issues that would not be adequately addressed by firearm (or likely any other kind of) legislation.

As to the mayor, I bet he will use this as an opportunity to attack the recent SCOTUS rulings and justify his own anti-gun agenda. One thing for us to bicker - far worse for those elected and sworn to protect the victims to use their needless deaths as ammunition in their own twisted political games - while never addressing the real problems.

No but if the civilized folk were not disarmed, perhaps this sort of thing would be more rare in that neighborhood. 8-year-olds should be able to live in condition white everywhere. Unfortunately, liberal moonbats do not agree.
