Several people were shot in what appears to have been a mass shooting at a funeral home in Chicago on Tuesday night.
Chicago police are initially reporting that at least 16 people have been shot in what may be a mass casualty event.

Preliminary reports suggest that the funeral had been for the victim of an earlier shooting in Chicago.

“All we saw was just bodies laying everywhere,” witness Arnita Gerder told NBC Chicago. “Shot up everywhere, all over. Legs, stomach, back, all over the place. We thought it was a war out here.”
Gun violence and crime has skyrocketed in the city of Chicago, as the city’s Democratic mayor largely dismisses criticism from the Trump administration over her leadership. 63 people were shot, 12 fatally, over the weekend, with shooting figures on previous weekends breaking records for violence in the city’s history.
The story is developing, and Big League Politics is continuing the monitor the situation.
White Pill: Montana House Moves Constitutional Carry Bill Forward
Constitutional Carry is one ray of hope for the Right.
On January 20, 2021, the Montana House of Representatives passed Constitutional Carry legislation, HB102.
Weingarten provided some context to the significance of this bill’s progress:
The bill is the accumulation of a decade and a half of struggle against Democrat Governors, who have repeatedly vetoed reform legislation passed with large majorities in the legislature. Numerous sections in the bill show the Montana legislature has learned the lesson from other states as they restore the right to keep and bear arms.
Montana’s Senate is made up of 31 Republicans and 19 Democrats and Governor Greg Gianforte is a Republican, so the passage of this bill augurs well. If passed, HB102 would make Montana the 17th Constitutional Carry state.
Montana is already a very gun-friendly state, and represents a low-hanging fruit for Second Amendment activists to tap into.
Constitutional Carry has been one of the most successful movements on the Right over the past twenty years. It’s easy to complain about the corrupt status quo, but there are still plenty of ways right-wingers can score victories. Constitutional Carry is one of them.
It would behoove the Right to analyze existing trends and build off movements that are already producing results. There’s no need to embark on quixotic campaigns that end up being total fools’ errands. Find what’s already working and run with it.
