  • More then 120 people have been shot in Chicago in the first ten days of 2016.
  • By comparison, only 31 had been shot the first 10 days in 2015, over 3 times less.
  • Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi blamed the surge in gun violence on gangs.
  • Guglielmi also called for tougher state and federal gun laws.

More than 100 Chicagoans have been shot in the first 10 days of 2016 — a jarring figure three times more than last year.

At least 19 people were shot and killed between New Year’s Day and Monday morning, including someone gunned down just blocks away from the mayor’s home, the Chicago Tribune reported. Another 101 were injured by firearms.

Those shocking figures far surpass last year’s tally: During the same time period in 2015, nine people had been killed and 31 had been injured. By the end of the year, nearly 3,000 people had been shot.

Chicago police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi blamed the surge in gun violence — which has killed on average two people every day this year — on gangs.

“So far this year, the majority of the gun violence we’ve seen are a result of chronic gang conflicts driven in part by social media commentary and petty disputes among rival factions,” he said in a statement.

He pushed for a weapons crackdown in the wake of the terrifying amount of shootings this year.

“Every year Chicago Police recover more illegal guns than officers in any other city, and as more and more illegal guns continue to find their way into our neighborhoods it is clear we need stronger state and federal gun laws,” Guglielmi said.

The 2016 shootings include a Friday afternoon attack just four blocks from Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s home. During an argument at an apartment party, an attendee pulled out a gun, killed one person and wounded two others,the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

At least 2,986 people were shot in Chicago in 2015. Those killed last year include a 55-year-old mother of five accidentally shot by cops and a 9-year-old allegedly gunned down by members of his father’s rival gang.

    When are these assholes in office going to learn tougher gun laws isn’t going to work. Chicago already has some of the toughest gun laws in the country what has it done to curb anything. The surge in gun violence is being blamed on gangs. Well guess what they don’t buy guns on the up and up. That’s why Chicago’s gun laws don’t work.

    Let’s take Arizona for example. Open carry in the state of Arizona also some of the lowest crime and gun violence
    in the country.

  • Paul Reinke says:

    The city has always been that way.. When I was and independent trucker in the early 7o’s I did not like to deliver to Chicago., My family is from Lemont just a short distance away and can only remember the violence.

  • DHConner says:

    Obummer can’t even wipe his own backside without getting his hand in it. The idiocy of his so-called presidency over the last 7 years should offer enough evidence of his pitiful hopelessness and uselessness. Oly useful idiots cab stomach his utter failure daily.

  • Jean Christian says:

    Obama thinks “guns Kill!” instead of people behind the guns. His approach to gun control is to keep law abiding citizens from obtaining guns for protection but does very little to keep guns from the hands of willing criminals who indiscriminately use them for their own personal reasons and who act intentionally!

  • DUKE says:

    Of course not. He is the main problem.

  • Ray Kennedy says:

    Strictest Gun Control in Chicago and yet, more shootings on any given weekend than in Syria or
    Iraq !

  • mona callender says:

    lets just turn Chicago over to all the criminals and let the victim’s move to the cities where we are moving the illegals’….then we can move all the illegals to Chicago… sound good….???

  • gf says:

    The problem is, that any place that has large amounts of niggers and Muslims, is a shit hole, beyond repair. There is no way to solve the problem, without eliminating the problem.

    Sorry, another MF typo!

  • Name says:

    I think Obama is destroying our country for a reason. Make it easier for terrorist or destroy us

  • A.w says:

    As long as the borders are wide open there will be crime with guns

  • Dave Lord says:

    How would you suggest Obama should have saved Chicago? Send in the Army? A gaggler of Republicans? Overlook all the good he does and blame him for something out of his control?
