    Here are some interesting statistics from today's Chicago Tribune regarding the 500 murders that have happened in Chicago:

    As of this past Thursday, 500 people were murdered in the city of Chicago.

    83% of those murdered in Chicago last year had criminal records. Many of them FELONS who'd served prison time. (415.)

    60% of those murdered in Chicago had known gang affiliations and multiple arrests and convictions. (300)

    2% of those murdered in Chicago were kids under 10 years of age. (10 kids.)

    Is this the "Chicago" that Obama referred to last week when he said the city represents the "best of America?" Gang bangers and convicted criminals killing each other? The ones I feel sorry for are the 10 innocent children stuck in that crap-hole called Obama's Chicago.

    Hell I guess letting them kill each other is cheaper than arresting them and putting them in jail. Maybe IL considers it a public service.

    While I would be for fencing in the entire city and letting them kill each other off, and then killing the survivors, he has a point about the children.

    They never asked for any of this.

    I think that since gun control does not work, as evidenced by Chicago, they should round up ALL known bangers, put them in an enclosed area, and let them fight it out to the death. Then we simply gun down the winner.

    This way, we can leave the children behind and perhaps put them in an environment that will teach them to be responsible citizens.

    holy hell. This isnt a gun laws problem, it is an economic problem. Do you think gun crimes occur or dont occur In Chi because of the laws put in place? No, they happen because the inner city of chicago is a jungle of cultural and economic deprevity..These people are led to gun violence because they live in the ghetto, not because they can or cant have guns.
