Here’s your gun control failure of the year. Mayor Rahm Emanuel and the Bradys were unavailable for comment:

Chicago has hit a dismal milestone. A late night shooting has marked the city’s 500th homicide for the year.

40-year-old Nathaniel Jackson was shot on the city’s West Side around 9 p.m Thursday. He was pronounced dead shortly after midnight. The victim’s family has confirmed his identity.

Chicago Police say Jackson was shot in the head while standing outside a convenience store at Augusta Boulevard and Lavergne Avenue in the Austin Neighborhood.

…2008 was the last time Chicago reached 500 homicides.

Update (DP): Jesse Jackson tries to defend Chicago’s gun ban after the 500th homicide of the year, fails miserably.
