    Shocking. It looks like a bad area, some gangland craziness?

    I thought guns were more or less illegal in Chicago. How did this happen?

    Shouldn't the people in Chicago still obey Chicago's laws?

    given where the kid is from, his demographic, and his family was previously victims of violent crime, the kid woulda been dead/on welfare or in jail in 12 years. So its no skin off my back.

    Reading the thread, the problem was that the toddler and his mum weren't allowed to wear a weapon.

    Anyway. It's disgusting. I mean, wasn't that the 3rd toodler shot in the last months in the US?
