All this is going on while the police are being labelled as the "Blue Klux Klan" by Foxx's supporters.

Chicago is a ways down the list of US cities with the highest murder rate. But apparently it's fun for cons to vilify Chicago because it's considered Obama's home town.

Chicago just elected a bunch of socialists to the city council, so that should help.

Whatsleft,
Chicago was a punching bag before Obama.
It was the whole "handguns are illegal" meme.

Most of these were gang related, just like in LA.

Tell us again how white supremacists are such a Yuge threat in the US when gangs shot, in Chicago alone, over 20 people this weekend?

Even locally most of the shootings aren't fatal.
I don't know if it's bad aim or if they don't want to go away for murder.

With such horrible aim you have to wonder how many of the 33 were the intended target...

well, that list has cities of small populations that makes it hard to compare.

Detroit, Cleveland, East St. Louis, etc....those are more appropriate.

With such horrible aim

Black folks hold a gun "gangsta style". Makes for horrible aim.

Chicago is breeding bulletproof gangsters. They get shot starting with low calibre bullets until they build up resistance.

"33 shot, 4 fatally, in Chicago"

Honestly, these weapon manufactures should be sued for selling a defective product.

That's how pistols work. iirc, only 1 in 5 pistol shootings are fatal, whereas it's 4 in 5 for rifles. If you get shot with a pistol and your heart is still beating as you make it to the hospital your survival odds are very, very high.

For how easy is to get guns in Chiraq, and how easy an MSR is to conceal, you'd think they'd use more carbines on each other.

#17 | Posted by sitzkrieg, The reason is cavitation, a bullet from a rifle usually possesses five times the kinetic power of a pistol. Flesh is mostly water, the "splash" of a bullet with that much power will tear up a lot more than the bullet path. I saw individuals in Iraq that were torn in half by a 50 cal.
