    No, not true - because the media is very pro-Democrat here. And then, the universally-approved Rahm Emanuel answer is "It's for the children!"

    It's worse than we thought!

    I just checked the numbers and in 1930 the population of Chicago was 3,376,438 according to the US Census Bureau but only 2,695,598 according to the FBI's Uniform Crime Index.

    That works out to a rate of homicide in 1929 of .7 per 100,000 people for the month of January or 8.4 per 100,000 for the year if the rate stayed the same for the rest of the year.

    This year that works out to a rate of 1.6 per 100,000 people or a yearly rate of 19.2 if the rates stays the same for the rest of this year.

    Gun control sure does work!!!:cuss:

    There are other factors to take into account, such as cultural changes in urban life and such, but yes, your point's very well taken. :eek:

    ABC news was interviewing a Chicago resident who lived in a high crime area. They asked him what needed to be done. He replied the cops need to clean up the guns in the area. He went on to say that he could just look in the bushes and find a gun. Yet the police never arrest anyone with a gun. Apparently Chicago has a huge problem enforcing the laws they have on the books. Before officials in Chicago start pointing the finger at other areas officials should prove they are enforcing existing laws. If the police were making 1,000's of gun arrests in high crime areas they would have reason to complain.

    CPD's severely understaffed and everyone knows it.

    What that resident said kind of goes in line with what Uncle Joe Biden said when asked about enforcing fraud Form 4473's -- "We don't have the man power to check every one." Pfft.
