Mass murder sprees in this country via highly efficient firearms will continue unchecked until society finally reaches the point where the status quo becomes unacceptable. The NRA/firearm industry lobbyists are using the same playbook as the tobacco industry lobbyists used for decades, trying to undermine truth with pseudoscience and outright lies. Back in the day, millions of addicted smokers advocated for their unalienable right as Americans to endanger family members, coworkers and innocent bystanders with clouds of cancer causing smoke. At first the idea of regulating smokers seemed to be a ridiculous pipe dream of a few extremists, but with education and time, Americans came to favor it. Firearm and ammo sales/usage will undoubtedly be more strictly regulated (not banned) once Americans are better informed and realize a change is needed. It is simply a matter of time.

Number of Murders, United States, 2010: 12,996

Number of Murders by Firearms, US, 2010: 8,775

Number of Murders, Britain, 2011*: 638
(Since Britain’s population is 1/5 that of US, this is equivalent to 3,095 US murders)

Number of Murders by firearms, Britain, 2011*: 58
(equivalent to 290 US murders)

Number of Murders by crossbow in Britain, 2011*: 2 (equivalent to 10 US murders).


Cool stuff

If you want to get to the root of the problem, research the percentage of murders that are drug related.
Then compare drug trafficking in the US to drug trafficking in Britain.

Eery stuff.

It sure doesn't. 40 gun homicides in Chicago since the beginning of 2013.

Crazy how those gang members don't follow the law...

Are you in a gang in Chicago?

Something like 90% of the murders are gang related. Is everyone in Chicago in a gang?

are those 500 murders breaking into houses and murdering wives and children in their sleep? What % are those?

What is their non gang murder rate vs the rest of the US?

Gangs can be cleaned up over time as there is proof of it all over.

So the average citizen doesn't need to protect themselves/ family from those gangs?

I would say its a very high percentage of those murders were committed by gangs breaking into houses. Wish I could find something about that.

So Panthro....what does "shall not be infringed" mean to you?

So Panthro...was this girl a gang member?

http://chicago.cbslo...ghborhood-park/

CHICAGO (CBS) – A teenage girl–an honor student who had just performed at President Obama’s inaugural–was gunned down Tuesday afternoon in the Kenwood neighborhood, just blocks from the high school she attended.
CBS 2’s Mike Parker reports the victim, 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, was taking shelter from the rain with a group of 10 to 12 teenagers under a canopy in Vivian Gordon Harsh Park on the 4500 block of South Oakenwald Avenue around 2:30 p.m., when someone jumped a fence, ran up to them, and opened fire.


Maybe Chicago needs to get super tougher.
