Hmm, according to my search that's the 6th "LOL LOOK HOW MANY PEOPLE GOT SHOT IN CHICAGO" thread so far this month.

Can we have a "LOL LOOK HOW MANY PEOPLE DIED DUE TO LACK OF HEALTHCARE IN TEXAS" thread next?

Y'know, for balance, and fairness, and stuff.

Gun violence in Chicago is destroying Chicago. The administration appears to be powerless. We in Chicago are ashamed. I apologize to the dead Chicagoans, all young, all now dead, and I appeal to my fellow Chicagoans to stop this gun violence now.

Holy crap, that's a pathetic kill rate.

1. Death by means that were preventable if health care was available is not something easy to generate statistics on, so it's done only once a year or so.

2. The number of deaths by shootings in Chicago are low enough to get our minds around. The number of deaths due to inadequate health care in a huge state that rejected Medicaid expansion like Texas is in the many of thousands and end up being a vaguely depressing statistic.

3. Guns are a God given American right, while universal healthcare is socialism, which makes baby Jesus cry.

Or malaria.  Does it not sink in that mosquitoes are THE WORLD'S MOST DEADLY ANIMAL?  Sorry for the quotes, but seriously, humans rank, but not in the number one spot.  And people act like they "care about their fellow man".  Flucking hypocrisy.  It's all bloated hot air clap trap to try and get political points for your sorry version of a new world order.  Why not take care of a real, tangible, and epidemic problem instead of b-on-b Chicago shootings.

The police were responding to the shooting scenes as soon as the dispatch reported the incidents, but the cops seemed to be delayed for some reason...

Maybe you should appeal to the men to not leave their boys fatherless. Fatherless boys/men are the main reason for this epidemic.

/Its not the type, well..it kinda is, but it's more about placement.  If you don't hit a artery, or a major organ, or the head, you're just pissing someone off.  Helps if you don't shoot from a moving car like a little biatch, or just spray and pray into a crowd hoping to get that one guy.  Oh yes, and front sight.

Yeah I live near St. Louis which has a murder rate much higher than Chicago. So I get a kick out of the "OMGZ people got shot in Chicago" spin the media seems to take when they don't seem to give a shiat about places like here or Detroit or Baltimore.

/Although i applaud your efforts and sentiment, you cant fix stupid, you can't stop young black men from being greedy for easy money and rep, and you can't make people study in school harder, or make black men stay with the children they have sired. All that adds up to "no options" and they join a gang...and shoot up the city for turf rights and cash.  If we had a way to make them study, be more responsible, and quit being lazy greedy assholes, we would have the problem licked. These guys don't wanna work for a living, they think that the working man is a chump.  And i don't care if they all get shot, it's the innocent people who die that pisses me off.

I know you are trolling, but I will respond anyway.  It becomes safer when the law abiding people are armed.  When only the criminals are armed, everyone is more commonly referred to as "victims".

Not necessarily true. St. Louis has CCW and has crime that's worse than Chicago's.

I honestly don't think it makes any difference whether or not citizens are armed.

Funny, as I started reading this thread gunfire started here in Berkeley. Could be in Oakland, I'm near the border.

But then that's most nights, and I don't see anything in the news about it.

It still is.

The use of knives by humans against humans are potentially vastly more deadly than the same potential use of the tool known as a gun due to the knife's ability to perform greater compound damage (twisting and directional movement), and knife crime in the UK is through the roof!  I also understand for westerners, the use of spoons as a tool for getting fat is vastly more deadly than the use of chopsticks due to a lack of familiarity with the tool.

St. Louis crime rates are nowhere near Chicago's when properly examined:

That's waisis!  Seriously though, how many law abiding citizens are able to protect their person and property there?  In Chicago, by definition, presently, NONE.

Don't be ridiculous.  You think studying is going to fix their problems?  Or a McJob?  These kids see their neighborhood.  They know those options are just as much a dead end as drug dealing, etc.  at least with drug dealing you have a slim chance of making money before you're arrested.

This is impossible.


Chicago has strict gun control laws and therefore "gun violence" is not possible there.
