    And The Hits Just Keep On Coming

    CHICAGO (CBS) – A teenage girl–an honor student who had just performed at President Obama’s inaugural–was gunned down Tuesday afternoon in the Kenwood neighborhood, just blocks from the high school she attended.

    So little of the gun violence debate is focused on these illegal guns that are killing kids every day. No outrage, no prayer vigils, no presidential trips.

    • Theres, its strange that President Obama's political home town, Chicago, has had people killed by guns than were killed by guns in Afghanistan since 2001.
      "The war zone-like statistics are not new. As WBEZ reports, while some 2,000 U.S. troops have been killed in Afghanistan since 2001, more than 5,000 people have been killed by gun fire in Chicago during that time, based on Department of Defense and FBI data."
      It makes no sense, in fact it borders on insanity.

    • This happens everyday in the big cities-we are desensitized to single shootings. You know the immediate solutions-outrage for media attention isn't one of them. .
