In Other Chicago Shooting News...

[Content Note: Gun violence.]

All of them happened on the city's south and west sides. Which, if you're not familiar with the city, are disproportionately not-white and not-affluent.

Our President's Chicago home is on the South Side. One would think the increasingly out of control gun violence in neighborhoods not far from his home would make him more disposed to supporting gun control, but one would be wrong.
