Anti-gun Violence Protest in Chicago Shuts Down Major Freeway

 In 2nd Amendment, Breaking News

An anti-gun violence protest was held in Chicago on Saturday that blocked parts of the Dan Ryan freeway. It was NOT led by “youth protesters from Parkland” it was led by an activist Catholic Priest named Michael Pfleger, 69, from St Sabina church. But as with all of these “anti-gun violence” marches and protests, they offer no solutions, but simply demand more laws. Mayor Rahm Emanuel is supporting the protest.

Police blocked off part of the freeway so that traffic could get through, but it will depend on those screaming “Shut it down!” whether there will be any arrests. Tension was rising as we were writing this article.

The vast majority of gun violence in Chicago stems from the gang community, in spite of their tough gun laws. Often innocent people are caught in the crossfire. Why is no one trying to fix THAT problem?

[Note: “bold and courageous” is not what we call it.]

    Rahm Emanuel is part of the problem. Watching this great city going further & further into the crapper year after year, with each mayor has totally made it to not even wanting to go the city. I am a native of Chicago & wouldn’t want to be there rather drive away from the city. Now Imagine what outsiders are thinking. You think they want to travel to Chicago so their children end up missing or caught in a drive by or maybe mugged & raped on the Mag Mile? We need to vote out these catch & release judges. Re Imagine A new Mayor. We need to try a different approach cause what they been doing for 25+ years is not working.

    Unbelievable. If Conservatives Christians did this instead of liberals they would have been arrested. Hate the double standards.

    More anti-gun laws (gun control laws) do not seem to be the answer in Chicago.
    They already have tons of gun laws on the books and shooting continue to occur.
