And by drastically, I mean almost not at all.
Perhaps Obama truly is the Bringer of Light™…on a weekend trip to his hometown of
Nairobi Chicago, the gun-related violence and number of gun-related murders were down significantly.
Instead of the ~50 shootings and ~15 murders that occur each weekend in the
windy violent city, only 35 people were shot and only 7 of them died.
President Barack Obama’s visit to Chicago didn’t stop another violent weekend.
At least seven people were killed and 35 were injured since Friday night. The youngest victim was a 16-year-old girl who died after she was shot three times in the chest Saturday evening in the Englewood neighborhood.
Ten people were shot overnight Friday, and in one hour Sunday morning, three people were killed. The latest shooting happened just after midnight Monday when a 19-year-old was shot to death on the city’s North Side.
Obama is truly a miracle worker; the one we have been waiting for.
Have these gangbangers no respect for The Won? They are clearly racists (x11) for daring to not act on their best behavior in the presence of such nobility….
Frankly, I’m surprised that the murder rate wasn’t higher this weekend, since a reported 200 of Chicago’s finest officers were taken off the streets and were instead assigned to guard the wedding of Valerie Jarrett’s daughter…
Though, one would think that the city with the most restrictive gun laws infringing upon law-abiding citizens’ second amendment rights that their rates of gun-related violence and murder would be the lowest in the country. I mean, that’s the Liberal belief right? That if we can just eliminate the second amendment, then the violence will just magically disappear, right?
Oh…and then there’s this:

The other part of this story, which of course the MFM won’t discuss…is that nearly all of these shootings are young black men shooting and killing other young black men.
