You can't make this stuff up.
If the heat is causing people to kill in Chicago then it should be really dangerous in Phoenix.

There are many causes for gun violence, but I am extremely skeptical that a bout of warm weather is among those causes.
With all the gun control in place in Chicago, where do they get the guns? Don't the criminals know it is illegal to have them? What are they thinking?
We should ban the heat. What we need is heat control. Heat causes violence. Eliminating heat would save lives.
Unemployment and the lack of hope of meaningful employment is the majority reason for gun violence in American cities.
Once again, I don't think that's it. I, myself, am unemployed at the moment, and the thought of shooting up people has never once crossed my mind. I mean, who can even afford to shoot people up? Ammunition is expensive!
Zelkiiro, If you don't think thats it, thats o'k, if you don't want to think about it. You can't put yourself in mind set of the premanently 40% unemployed for decades. That would be like comparing your economic activities with the economic activity of the Federal Government. Its like comparing oranges and apples. Trust me Zelkiiro, I'm an underclassman, massive long term group unemployment causes violence, always have and always will.
My post was more in jest than anything. But if we're gonna be serious, the marginal majority of gun violence is more likely to come from inner-city gangs fighting over territory and drugs. And only one of those things can be solved via legalization.
But naturally, there will be those who believe thousands of people dying in the streets by getting shot in the face is preferable to some people getting high off their ass in their apartment somewhere.
zelkiiro, I was not jesting when I said, unemployment and not climate change was the cause of gun violence in Chicago. I thought you didn't really know that truth. That problem can't be solved by legalization of guns it's an employment problem. Iam sorry I don't trivialize gun violence, it's serious here.
Isn't unemployment higher in Detroit, did they have more people murdered there than Chicago?
Not sure, but I did see this recently about Baltimore.

79% with criminal records
61% with drug arrests
45% with prior gun crimes
82% victims with criminal records
68% victims with drug arrests
37% victims with prior gun crimes
I would imagine most large urban areas are going to be somewhat similar to this. It's usually drug-related, usually gang-related, and usually happens between people who have records, both the suspect and the victim.
Blame President Obama's economy? It certainly has some part in America's violence, doesn't it?
Oh sure, when Sarah Palin says that Paul Revere rode through Boston because the British were going to take our arms away.......
Don't you dare mock Sarah Palin!
But if a non-political figure says something equally stupid, its just liberal nonsense that should be bashed for days?
Close enough. On April 19, 1775, the British tried to take military supplies from the colonists, resulting in the Battles of Lexington and Concord. While she's not entirely right, she has the general idea. This really isn't that stupid, and it has far more merit than you are giving to it.
Did I miss a memo? When did we get the right to shoot people for driving down our driveway?

The federal government could declare a state of emergency and post at least 2 well trained, armed personnel, either police or military, within our public schools. Gunmen attack soft targets. They like to assault "gun free zones." I believe 20 years of wrangling over...

The tragic events that happened in Boston in a way proved the message that no amount of laws will prevent the will of a mad man. Crazy (whether in the name of his/her God or some other reason) follows no law, rhyme or reason expect hurt as many people as possible. Up until now we as a people could...

How do we keep our children and ourselves safe from gun violence?As I watched television all day last Friday I found I couldn't remove myself from needing to know what was going on in Newton, CT. At first I was relieved that only 3 people were injured and then when the real truths started to come...
