17 dead and at least 74 shot, including numerous children, in Chicago over July 4 weekend

It was another brutally violent weekend in Chicago. Over the Independence Day weekend 17 people were shot to death and at least 74 others were wounded. Two of the fatalities and ten of the wounded were minors.

Chicago's mayor, Lori Lightfoot, is blaming the increased bloodshed on guns of course, the lockdown (which she encouraged), but of course has nothing to say on individual responsibility.
