(CNSNews.com) – In the 20-day period of the George Zimmerman trial, four minors – three teens and a five-year-old boy - were gunned down in Chicago, according to Homicide Watch Chicago, a Chicago Sun-Times publication, which details every murder that takes place in the city.

On June 28, five-year-old Sterling Sims was killed in a double murder that also claimed the life of his mother, 31-year-old Chavonne Brown. Both were shot in their apartment, and police believe the motive was robbery.

On July 1, 16-year-old Antonio Fenner was gunned down on the sidewalk next to the body of a 32-year-old man who had gang ties. No arrests were made, and no suspects have been named. Fenner’s mother believes her son was in the wrong place at the wrong time, because no one in her family knew the other victim or what Fenner’s association was to him.

On July 3, 14-year-old Damani Henard was murdered outside a high school. His body was found next a bicycle.

On July 9, 15-year-old Ed Cooper was shot and killed while spending time with friends at the park. A gunman got out of a black van and began firing as the boys ran away. Cooper was shot in the street and continued running to a vacant lot where he died.

Four Children Gunned Down in Chicago During Zimmerman Trial | CNS News

There may a drug war going on in Chicago but the children are the casualties. What is the Progressive Mayor Rahm Emmanuel doing about it? He has disarmed the honest population and allowed the THUGS to reign destruction, rape and murder on the city he was elected to serve and protect. The loss of Trayvon Benjamin Martin to his family is devastating and understandably so. They must understand that their son did in fact assault a man and his actions resulted in his own death. There's a lot of what if's about this, but we can only go according to the evidence. Trayvon was the initial aggressor. Who were the aggressors that killed those four teenagers? Will they also be verbally lynched by the MSM, or those political race baiters seeking the lynching of George Zimmerman.

Or maybe they should all just be strapped to protect themselves right? Make it the wild wild west. Kinda odd that the NRA hasnt said much about this issue.. Daily Kos: Why Isn't NRA Arguing Trayvon Martin Tragedy Could Have Been Averted if Only He Had a Gun?

Perhaps...if they were armed they might indeed be a little less DEAD. I am not reading anywhere that there were cops were available to prevent the shootings.

The NRA HAS advocated for responsible citizens to arm themselves in the black community. Your selective reading must cause you to miss that. However, a violent angry aggressive hothead that chose to attack a neighborhood watch member because he was being followed would probably NOT be a good candidate to carry a weapon.

Tell me...do YOU believe the correct response to being followed is to assault someone, go on full mount, and beat him in the face and then attempt to drive his head into to ground? Would you advocate for anyone feeling threatened to respond to the threat in a violent attack? If you have a kid...say...at school...who is being insulted or ridiculed, is the correct response for the kid being ridiculed to sneak behind the verbal assailant and then attack him and drive his head into the ground?

They weren't killed by white people, so their lives no value to the Libbos.
If he had a son, I bet the killers would have looked like Obama...

Because Zimmerman had the right and a permit to carry a conceal weapon. He was physically attacked by Martin. Fearing for his life during the beating he stopped the beating with one shot, causing the death of Trayvon Martin. Zimmerman was justified in what he did. A fair trial proved it. BTW the other tragedy that could have taken place was Zimmerman brains spread all over the concrete walk. We know that by the broken nose along with the cuts, bumps and lacerations on the back his head.

Did you protest the Simpson results when he was tried and acquitted?

Connies try to exploit the death of a black kid to beat down the political opposition and encourage rioting?

The right to bear arms is a civil right

The Left has purposely disarmed blacks in the inner cities so they can be more easily controlled. If these rioters and looters were to try to unleash their mayhem into the rural areas where people are armed, they are going to meet the same fate as Trayvon Martin.

Hmmm, according to most anti-Zimmerman folks, it is impossible to evaluate the 4 shootings stated in the OP because it doesn't tell the race of who was shot and who did the shooting.

So by simply owning a gun makes you "less controlled". Please explain this in terms of American politics..

Why does having a gun have to do with anything? Is the government currently trying to control you by brute force? Are you fighting back with your gun?

How does this deal with any realistic American scenario currently? Notice how i stated from the get go "within American politics" meaning current relevant political situations. Not some draconian scenario.
