The draconian gun laws in Chicago did not stop this Son Of Obama from getting a gun.

I have my doubts about who actually discharged the gun.

I bet it was not the boy or his playmate, my money is on the father.

Authorities have charged the father of a 3-year-old boy who critically hurt in an accidental shooting at a West Side home Friday night.

James J. Jenkins, 26, faces one felony count of unlawful use of a weapon for possession of a firearm by a parolee, police said Sunday morning.

Jenkins allegedly owned the handgun accidentally discharged by the boy or a playmate about 7:30 p.m. Friday at their home in the 4300 block of West Monroe, police said.

The boy’s name is James Jenkins as well. He was taken in critical condition to Mount Sinai Hospital, officials said.

His father was scheduled to appear in bond court Sunday, police said.

“Everybody is just in shock right now,” the boy’s aunt Annette Garvin said Friday. “We are trying to put everything together.”

A neighbor said two people were sitting on the front porch of the home at the time of the shooting.

“There was a boom and they ran inside,” the neighbor said.

Tammy McNeal said she was driving when she saw people running towards the middle of the block.

“Then I heard screams, ‘someone’s been shot,’” McNeal said.

Neatre Strong, the boy’s grandmother, said James was a very active child.

“He loves pizza and music,” Strong said.

Ardell Strong, the boy’s great uncle, said the youngster “was a good kid — an average every day kid who liked to play video games.”

Strong added, “This should have never happened.”
