Looks like those gun laws are really working....
Any of the perps could have looked like Obama's son if he had one.....
What did Sharpton and jackson have to say on all this ?....Nothing ?...Really ?
The media tried to ask Obama what he thought about it, but he said he was too busy and in a hurry to get to his golf game to worry about it.

Hillary Clinton was asked about it and she had this to say regarding all the black on black killings going on in Chicago....
