    I am so touched by the concern displayed by the rw's over the horrible gun deaths in Chicago but as shown in an earlier thread, Chicago is not even in the top ten for gun related deaths, suicides or homicides.

    If only they would pass out guns to Chicago residents. Then they could kill more people and make it into the Top Ten List.

    500 deaths.

    Out of 6 million people.

    8/1000th of a percent in 2012.

    The percentage was much higher in Newtown.

    But fear not - you can still go home and make love to your auto weapon.

    Right...When raw numbers aren't on your side, go with the percentages...If the percentages fail you, go with the raw numbers.

    Well just to add to this little bit of pissing for distance,Chicago will kill another 500 this years just as they have for YEARS Newton probably not.

    Is the view better standing on top of those dead kids?

    But it is 3 times more dangerous than the rest of Illinois, where all those redneck gun lovers you despise so much live.
    From another thread:

    Chicago...gun free zone...500 firearm homicides.

    Illinois most recent data....776 TOTAL firearm homicides.

    So Chicago 500, the rest of the state where most of the LEGAL firearms are 226.

    And that includes East Saint Louis!


    .
    ..
    .
    .
    .
    Now, FTR, this is simply for comparison sake...the 2012 state data for Illinois isn't out yet.
    IOW, it's much, MUCH safer to live next to me, the gun nut, than to live next to you, the gun grabber.
