A grounded kid can get shot at home

Lately there has been a ton of press about the number of children injured in gunfire here in the city.The city recently held a press conference in response. Their response? Don’t let them go outside so much.As rational as it’s presented, I’m always kind of amused when the mayor takes a podium and starts making demands on local families. He does this during big snowfalls too, it’s this weird, candid-but-manic habit of his. You’d expect most mayors to talk double-talk, but Daley has this awesome habit of speaking directly to complainers in this lecturing tone. “You want more plows? We’re doing fine with the plows. Go grab a shovel, don’t you know how one works?!”
