The heartbreaking gun violence the media chooses to ignore because there would be no political upside in reporting it, continues unabated in Obama's Chicago -- a city run only by Democrats and unions, and with some of the toughest gun controls in the country (see why the media ignores it?). Already this year, 41 people have been murdered in the Windy City, a ten-year record. Yesterday, 15 year-old Hadiya Pendleton was number 42.
Hadiya wasn't a drug dealer or gang member or any kind of troublemaker, as far as we know. She was a lovely, young honor student who enjoyed the privilege of performing with her school band at President Obama's inauguration earlier this month. Yesterday, after an exam, she was gunned down in a Chicago park known to be frequented by gang members.
As I write this, all three cable networks are broadcasting wall-to-wall coverage of congressional gun control hearings. Obama and the Democrats and the media are currently on a crusade to pass laws that would have done nothing to stop the Sandy Hook massacre that supposedly inspired this crusade. And if the slaying of Hadiya Pendleton ends up being what it looks like, those laws would have done nothing to save her young life.
