How is it that Peoria appears to be filled with young'uns with guns?

When are we going to question how there are so many guns on the streets of Peoria? There appears to be a never ending gun supplier out there somewhere. When are we doing to deal with who is responsible? Our children are being shot and/or killed every day in Peoria. Instead of dealing with the issue, sometimes it appears as if the people who run this little town want to keep shootings under wraps (as much as possible).

By the way, there was a shooting at Wisconsin and Nebraska on Sunday at around 8:30, that has yet to be reported on by the mainstream media.

On another matter (related to young'uns with guns) I got together with the fam to play cards Saturday night. Usually the teenagers are not around, but this time my nephew was. When I asked him what was up, he said he doesn't like going out anymore, all people ever want to do is fight or talk about fights. I saw nephew again on Sunday, asked him what was up and he informed me his friend was shot at the roller skating rink. His friend is doing okay, but "he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time".

Two People Shot, One Beaten at Mossville Skating Rink Around 1:30 a.m. Sunday, the Peoria County Sheriff's Office responded to reports of multiple shots fired at the Peoria Palace Skating Rink in Mossville. Authorities say callers also reported a fight in progress.

When they arrived, sheriff's deputies found a large crowd and about 100 cars fleeing the scene. Amongst the crowd were two victims with non life-threatening gunshot wounds, and the victim of a beating.

All three victims were juveniles. Their identities are not being released. The investigation is ongoing. Source

I'm thinking nephew is going to pass on this:
