There was another mass shooting last week. I’m sure you heard about, given that it was all over the news.
A gunman entered a laundromat and opened fire, injuring at least six people. Most of the victims were young adults, but two were teenagers aged 14 and 16. The gunman was still at large. There was no word on whether he was responsible for the 30 other shootings that occurred in the same area over a three-day span that included the laundromat attack.
What? You didn’t hear about it? No. I guess not. It was ignored by the mainstream media.
Unlike the shooting in Las Vegas, the perpetrators couldn’t be tied — however loosely — to the statist’s favorite villains: the National Rifle Association, Cliven Bundy, the liberty movement or — gasp — rural white people, aka “rednecks.” And the shooting took place in another gun-free zone: Chicago, which has some of the strictest gun laws in the Nation.
So the media ignored it. After all, it’s Chicago. Gang-related. Barack Obama’s and Rahm Emanuel’s town. Where guns are outlawed, so only the outlaws have guns.
Another day, another gangland shooting. That doesn’t fit their agenda, so you don’t need to hear about it.
