Illinois has pretty tough gun laws, shootings can’t happen there.

Can this possibly be true?

I thought they had guns under control there?

“Demographics

As of the census[3] of 2000, there were 354 people, 136 households, and 99 families residing in the village. The population density was 341.8 people per square mile (131.4/km²). There were 147 housing units at an average density of 141.9 per square mile (54.6/km²). The racial makeup of the village was 100.00% White.”

Sad story. More than 1% of their population killed.

there are not enough details provided to know if it was all locals or not. The report is suspiciously short of details.

I will bet $50 that the shooter did not use an “assault rifle.”

Five dead? Where are the photos of the town on lockdown, and the house to house searches by tactical teams?

>The pastor of Manchester Baptist Church told NewsChannel 5 that the murders happened inside a public housing complex on East Street Wednesday morning.

Sounds like the Amish to me. Section 8 no doubt.

How can that be? I thought they had already gone door-to-door and confiscated guns in the housing projects?

According to Wikipedia: "The racial makeup of the village was 100.00% White."

So this is apparently a dustup in a racist enclave.

What makes you think that? There are plenty of white folks living in public housing/section 8.
