Memorial Day Weekend Mass Shootings in Cities Where Guns Are Nearly Illegal

This past memorial day weekend we watched mass shootings take place across the country. Nearly all of these mass shootings took place in democrat run cities where guns are almost completely outlawed.

That being said we aren’t seeing the President and his entourage head to Chicago or Philadelphia to pay his respects to those gunned down as a result of gang violence and similar reasons.

NBC News reported:

Amid calls for gun control after last week’s massacre at a Uvalde, Texas, elementary school, shots rang out across the country over the Memorial Day weekend, with more than a dozen mass shootings in the span of 72 hours.

According to the Gun Violence Archive, which tracks shootings in the United States, there were at least 14 “mass shootings” in the country over the weekend, from early Saturday to late Monday.

The archive defines a mass shooting as an incident in which “four or more people are shot or killed, not including the shooter.”

At least nine people were killed in the shootings, with more than 60 injured, according to the organization’s data.

A preliminary count found that gun violence — not just mass shootings — left at least 156 people dead and 412 injured from 5 p.m. ET Friday to 5 a.m. Tuesday, the archive said.

Among the shootings over the long weekend was one Monday night in Charleston, South Carolina. Multiple people were shot and at least three law enforcement officials were hurt after gunfire erupted in the city’s downtown, according to police.

Earlier in the day, a shooting in Philadelphia left two women dead and two others injured.

Philadelphia police said they found the two women shot in the head in Port Richmond just before 1:30 a.m., NBC Philadelphia reported. Both women died at the hospital.

A teenager was also rushed to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the shoulder in connection with the incident, while a man who was found shot a block away was taken to a hospital and was in critical condition, police said.

NBC took the typical vague approach to cover the mass shootings across the country.

First, they failed to define exactly what a mass shooting is.

Then they only addressed two cities in which said mass shootings occurred. One a democrat dump in Philadelphia and then they had to throw in Charleston, South Carolina where three people were reportedly shot which by most classifications doesn’t even come close to being considered a mass shooting.

Then we have Chicago!

Chicago Sun Times reports:

Chicago experienced its most violent Memorial Day weekend in five years — 9 killed, 42 wounded — despite stepped up police patrols and a focus on neighborhood programs that city officials hoped would provide peaceful alternatives.

About half of those shot were on the West Side, most of them in a single police district, the 11th, where there were two mass shootings on Sunday. On the South Side, at least 23 people were shot. And downtown, where there has been a spike in shootings all year, four people were hit by gunfire.

The weekend was the most violent since 2017, when seven people were killed and 45 people were wounded, according to Chicago police data. The year before, 69 people had been shot over the long holiday weekend.

This past weekend’s toll is sharply higher than last year, when three people were killed and 34 others were wounded.

The Chicago Police Department canceled days off over the weekend, but Police Supt. David Brown was vague last Friday about the numbers of additional police officers assigned to work.

He would only say the safety plan included foot, bike and roving patrols; traffic safety, DUI saturation and carjacking task force missions; and gang and gun and organized retail theft investigations.

At the same news conference, Mayor Lori Lightfoot said weekend programs in 15 high-crime neighborhoods — including music-and-game-filled “kickbacks” with DJs — would be held later into the night to fill gaps pinpointed in conversations with young people in those neighborhoods.

On Saturday, faith leaders led a march for peace down Michigan Avenue. “There will be no silence till we end the violence,” a group of about 50 people chanted as they marched down the Mag Mile to Millennium Park.

Many of the weekend shootings occurred in neighborhoods long troubled by gun violence.

  • In Lawndale, five people were wounded after gunmen opened fire on a crowd marking the anniversary of another teen’s killing. A 16-year-old girl was among the wounded in the shooting early Sunday morning in the 800 block of South Karlov Avenue. Shell casings and at least 97 evidence markers could be seen in the street outside Daniel Webster Elementary School.
  • Later Sunday, a man was killed and four others wounded, including a gunman, during a domestic incident in Humboldt Park. The shooting led to a standoff with a police SWAT team. A gunman, 23, was arrested over an hour later and treated for a gunshot wound, police said.

Other fatal shootings from the weekend between 5 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Tuesday:


It’s time for society to wake up and realize that the vast majority of mass shootings take place in cities with the most strict gun control laws. Furthermore, it is important to understand that gun control laws clearly only hurt law-abiding citizens, these mass shootings are a clear-cut example of that.
