6-Year-Old Boy Fatally Shoots 3-Year-Old Brother in Chicago
A 6-year-old boy accidentally shot and killed his 3-year-old brother while playing “cops and robbers” with a gun their father told investigators he had obtained illegally from a gang member, Chicago police said Sunday. SOURCE
A 3 year old child, shot and killed with his father’s gun, one that was *illegally purchased* from a Chicago gang member, by a *former* Chicago gang member, the father himself, but this isn’t HIS fault. According to every Libtard comment I have found on line so far at least 2/3 of them are blaming ALL gun owners and the NRA, some saying the NRA encourages things such as this.
So, to you anti-gun Libtards that DO read here; feel free to weigh in and tell us all how gun bans, restrictions, confiscations and rigid gun laws are working out. Go ahead, take a shot at it, no pun intended, I really want to hear your ideas on what kind of gun laws could or would have stopped this from happening.
Police subsequently arrested the boys’ father, 25-year-old Michael Santiago, on a felony child endangerment charge. During a court hearing on Sunday, Assistant state’s Attorney Joseph DiBella said that Santiago bought the gun off the street, kept it “wrapped in pajama pants on top of the refrigerator” and even showed the boy where the gun was.
Well of course he showed it to a 3 year old and a 6 year old, and made sure that they knew where it was kept too. Isn’t that what ALL responsible parents and gun owners do? Allow the little tykes knowledge of and access to a loaded gun?
That’s what the moronic anti-gun LEFT believes.
“He kept the gun for protection because he was a former gang member who snitched on a gang member in a murder trial,” the Chicago Tribune reported DiBella as saying in court. Santiago had told police about the gun in a videotaped confession, DiBella said.
Maybe Santiago thought that if the kids knew where the gun was and a rival gang member crashed through the door one of the kids could grab the gun, shoot the gangster and save the day. It could have been planned that way, maybe, in a *gang world*.
Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said the case tragically illustrates a point he has been making for years about how a major cause of much of Chicago’s violent crime is the flood of illegal guns into the city.
“It’s real simple,” McCarthy said in a telephone interview with The Associated Press on Sunday. “If that gun is not in the house that kid is alive today. We see this happen over and over and over again.”
Well let me make a suggestion there Garry; make a concerted effort to take ALL of the illegal guns from the hands of the illegal and irresponsible owners, lock up the illegal guns owners and throw away the key and then leave the honest folks alone. That would be the best solution for you wouldn’t it?
Oh, wait, what am I thinking? I’m sorry Garry, I forgot that you want all guns to be outlawed, there are, in your demented Libtard mind, no honest gun owners. My bad.
McCarthy routinely points out that his officers seize many times more illegal guns than any city in the nation, including the larger cities of New York and Los Angeles. The department has seized more than 5,500 illegal weapons thus far in 2015.
And yet the gun crimes, shootings and gun homicides continue.
Chicago also has more homicides than any city in the nation, and the number this year has climbed, with department statistics showing there were 370 homicides as of Oct. 4, compared to 306 for the same period last year. The number of shooting incidents also has climbed during the same period to 1,870 from 1,581 last year.
So, let me ask once again; how is all that gun control working out for you Chicago?
Some members of the city council recently called for McCarthy to resign because they said he had failed to stem the violence.
I personally believe that Garry McCarthy is a twit, a big-time member of the *Chicago Political Machine* and a really egotistical piece of crap, that said; there is no way that Garry McCarthy, or any other police chief, Sheriff, state law enforcement officials or any federal law enforcement organization or military force can take away the guns in the hands of Americans, legally owner or otherwise. This isn’t Germany in the 1930’s and we are not going to roll over and go quietly into the night, the number of well armed Americans if far larger than ALL LEOs and military combined, and I am 100% convinced, our military and LEOs will NOT take up arms against the American people.
But McCarthy said that even when people are convicted in Chicago of gun possession the sentences in Illinois are not as long as they should be and dangerous criminals are back on the street within months or even weeks.
“Until something happens with these gun laws, it’s going to continue,” he said.
Yes Garry, it is going to continue because gun confiscation, even extreme regulation simply does not work. The only guns you would ever obtain are in the hands of people that you never have to worry about; the gun owners that are so simple-minded that they too would fall for all of this BS and would turn in their guns in some sort of buy-back or gun-grab.
All that you, or anyone else would accomplish with a gun confiscation would be the transition of LEGAL, responsible and LEGAL gun owners, people like ME and most of my readers, into full-blown outlaws that will give you our guns, but we’re going to give them BULLETS FIRST.
You might want to consider the number of troops and LEOs in this nation, they are far outnumbered by American gun owners, and then you might want to consider that at least 70-75% of those troops and LEOs will walk away, stand with the American people and against the moronic leadership of the Left, Obama, Clinton and people like you.
One other thing to think about; those troops and LEOs will bring their toys with them.
Careful consideration; that’s the key word and the decision is all yours.
