#1 People can hurt each other with kitchen knives and darts or live in peace with pistoles, its not what is on-hand it is the culture, and culture is the sum of x daily decisions, and its almost like the leaders are unable or unwilling to solve problems. But hey, its easy to be brave inside of a castle.

#4 Of those 500, how many were children?
...then again, being a member of a Democratic special interest group and dying in ones and twos at a time, in one of the most gun restrictive towns and states, doesn't grant the machine more power, so you're expendable in the great scheme of things.

...and 500 dead in one large city appears to be an acceptable loss.

#9 In other news, Santa Claus was shot and killed from stray gunfire over the skies of Chicago on Christmas Eve. An unidentified number of sacks were lost and pawn shops are to be on the lookout for Large Red Bags.

#12 That's NOTHIN'!
Sometime in the early 90's, Dallas was pushing toward 1,000 murders, and it is considerably smaller than Chicago.
That was just the City of Dallas, not the whole DFW Metroplex.

#14 P2K -
IIRC, nearly 75 gunshot victims in Chicago this year have been under 18.
Of course, this entire report is fraudulent. Guns are outlawed in Chicago, so there cannot possibly have been any firearms killings.
