    Chicago is a warzone. I'm convinced the authorities are just letting the gang bangers shoot each other to keep the numbers down. It's a shame when children and non gang bangers are caught up in the violence.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Plus the fact that Chicago has the strictest gun control laws in the country...so the only ones with guns are criminals.

    Ya don't see this happening in Texas where nearly half the population, if not more, is packing heat.

    Chicago's more pressing problems are chicken restaurants.

    Dallas now has third highest crime rate of cities with over a million people | City Hall Blog

    Last year, Dallas shed its title as the U.S. city of more than 1 million with the highest crime rate. That position, which Dallas held for at least 10 years, went to San Antonio. Houston was No. 3.
    Let's recap. Among cities with more than 1 million population, Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston are 1-2-3. What were you saying about the great state of Texas?

    Uh, crime rate and gun violence are not the same. Not saying I agree with either side, just saying.

    Gun control is not crime control.
    20% of U.S. VIOLENT Crime occurs in 4 cities: New York, Chicago, Washington D.C., & Detroit. These cities have near prohibition laws regarding handgun ownership.


    In 1997 the United Kingdom passed one of the strictest gun-control laws in the world, banning its citizens from owning almost all types of handguns. Britain seemed to get safer by the minute, as 162,000 newly-illegal firearms were forked over to British officials by law-abiding citizens.


    But this didn't decrease the amount of gun-related crime in the U.K. In fact, gun-related crime has nearly doubled in the U.K. since the ban was enacted.

    Updated. The body count increases daily. Projects to over 400 by the end of the year.

    The assertion was made in this thread that in places where "half the people are packing," they will keep crimes from being committed. I'm merely throwing a well-deserved bucket of water on that nonsense.
