Somebody shot up a pickup basketball game in Chicago last night. Nobody was killed, but 13 were injured. On Monday, 13 people died in the shooting at Washington's Navy Yard. Will there be action? Or, are multiple shootings coming to be accepted as part of America's routine? Also, the House passes a bill defunding Obamacare, setting the stage for a showdown, and the new Pope wants a new direction for the Roman Catholic Church.
