Christmas weekend was grim in Chicago even by this year's wretched standards for gun violence: Police say at least 41 people were shot, 11 fatally, between Friday evening and Sunday night, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Chicago Police Department spokesman Jose Estrada tells the New York Times that the number of homicides in the city so far this year is 745, up from 476 at this time last year, and marking the first time since 1997 that there have been more than 700.

He says the total number of shooting victims so far this year is 4,252, up 47% from 2,884 at this time in 2015. Most victims are men under 30.

Submitter's note: How's that gun control working out for you?

Police say an Ohio officer’s 2-year-old son died after shooting himself with his father’s gun Friday morning.

Officers responded to a home in Cleveland about 10:30 a.m., the Associated Press reported. The child died at a hospital, according to the Cleveland Division of Police.

The toddler’s father, 54-year-old Jose Pedro, is a 23-year veteran of the Cleveland police department.

Preliminary investigation indicated that the toddler got hold of his father’s service weapon, according to the AP.

Submitters note: How does a 2 year old get a gun? This smacks of negligence or laziness.

This feature appears in the January ‘17 issue of NRA America’s 1st Freedom, one of the official journals of the National Rifle Association. Why is it that when gun-ban advocates and other anti-gun types argue against your right to keep and bear arms, it is considered reasoned discourse, but when someone who stands on the side of freedom and the Second Amendment disagrees, it’s immediately labeled “hate”?

Advertisements for the Amazon Echo are cute, and highlight the device’s ability to find and play the right song when all you can remember are a few of the lyrics, offer recipes, answer spelling questions and provide weather forecasts. That’s all nice and good, but my wife—the closet techno geek in the family—received one of the female-voiced home devices on Christmas, and its ability to harden your home-defense profile is profound.

Nichole Smith: No Good Can Come From Campus Carry

College is a high-stress environment for all. For many it's a first chance to get to know and understand people from differing walks of life. Adding guns into this equation would be a sinister and poorly reasoned cog in the works. Looking at others with fear and suspicion is a sad choice people are free to make; I am not saying bad things don't happen in the world. But no good can come from the combination of inexperienced youth, high stress, suspicion, agitation, and gunpowder. It's a powder keg, and they want to hand out matches in the concourse.

A couple of years ago, I made a tremendous mistake as an editor. I chose to run the then-new Remington R51 on the cover based on a review of a pre-production sample by a trusted writer. My thinking was: “Remington has been around for 200 years, and the company makes iconic rifles and shotguns that are awesome. Therefore, this new handgun—based on an 80-year-old design—must be good. Besides, Remington assured us that the production guns will be the same as the pre-production test model.” I was wrong. The actual initial production run of the R51 was disastrous.
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Nations and peoples who forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms. — Robert Heinlein
