Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said a mass shooting at a South Side park shows why assault weapons should be banned, saying it was a "miracle" no one was killed when someone opened fire with a high-powered rifle at a pick-up basketball game.
Police believe the shooting stemmed from an ongoing dispute between the Black P. Stones and Gangster Disciples, a law enforcement source said. It was not known if any of the victims were intended targets, but McCarthy said "there were members of gangs on the scene and there were gang members among the victims." McCarthy said at least 16 rounds were fired and there could be as many as three offenders.
"I think it was like an AK," said one neighbor. "Man, it was a lot of shots. Man, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. A little boy got hit in the face."

Your right, even when I was in school which was like 15 years ago. Our teachers always was against guns and taught everyone that they was bad and only criminals had them. Especially when columbine happened (I was in middle school) there was so much propaganda against guns it was crazy. I remember they made us stay in the gym an entire day watching a film about guns and what happened at columbine after all that happened.
The silly people that say.. " If your not doing anything wrong then you have nothing to hide"
