Yet another shooting with 9 dead.

There's a story background but this particular quote from a Chicago Tribute article unfortunately sums it up:

The sheriff has been vocal in opposing state and federal gun-control legislation. In 2013, Hanlin sent a letter to Vice President Joe Biden after the shooting at a Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school, declaring that he and his deputies would refuse to enforce new gun-control restrictions "offending the constitutional rights of my citizens."

Also thought what the President had to say was a worthwhile read.

To fight the general sense of impotence around this topic, you might want to donate to someone who got shot trying to help.
