    More guns are needed. "More guns" is always the answer.

    That is what would stop this.

    Interesting to see what this is per capita. That means that one person got shot for every 64,000 people.

    So if there is a weekend where two people get shot in Ann Arbor in a weekend, that is the equivalent.

    Have they thought of passing a few more gun control laws?

    The headline was wrong. Actually 72 people got shot - but only 7 fatally.

    Need more range time.

    National gun control laws that work in other countries? No.

    Lots of countries have those laws but still have lots of violent crime. One of them is our southern neighbor.

    I can tell you it’s way more than we had in NYC over the same period and obviously there are more than 2x as many people here. Something is definitely messed up in Chitown...

    Since I didn't see this in the news I'm assuming no white cops were involved.

    Mexico does not have the economic development of Japan, Australia, Germany, Canada, etc.

    So what? It’s right on our southern border. Which of the countries you listed have borders with a country like that?

    Why does the UK have a higher violent crime rate despite strict gun control?

    Why does Switzerland have a much lower rate despite militia members having their fully automatic weapons at home?

    Mm, my guess is that the shootings were probably clustered in bad areas where this goes on all the time (think that's South side in CHI). Adjusting for that might make the numbers a little more eye-popping. Rest of the city is prolly just fine, or that's what I hear form Chicagoans on other boards.

    If you isolated where the shootings took place, the number would be far worse...

    Yep..the Chicago metro area pop. is greater than 35 US states. Probably about 80% of the total metro area is homicide free.

    But there was one shooting in San Antonio, about half the size of Chicago...

    Glad the stringient gun control laws are working to curb the gun-related violence.

    Totally worth it.

    I love how we argue gun control, yet don’t address the reality of differences among us.

    Guns aren’t the problem, yet so many blame them.

    It's the Folks and Peoples Nation continuing their war for control of the drug trade in Chicago.

    It's been going on for 40 years.

    No doubt but this is a nation wide problem, not just a Chicago problem.

    Do you think gangs and drug dealers care about the gun laws?

    Gun violence brought on by gang violence brought on by drug violence brought on by decades upon decades of neglect, incompetent bureaucracy, corruption, institutional racism, media glorification, and voyeurism.

    No place for logic and reason in this clearly partisan political - GTF outta here with your sane proposal.

    Clearly, I'm being facetious - I agree with your cursory analysis.

    What does this data suggest to you? Is it lack of male parental figures?

    I'd take it one step further and say that the lack of male parental figures is likely attached to lower standards of personal accountability.

    I think there was still racism in the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s and this was a much smaller problem then.

    Chicago has always been a violent place. I am not sure it will ever change.

    Probably because everybody has their head up their ass when it comes to "personal responsibility".

    Ah - amazing response. I just saw a gun get off a table in Billings, MT - and it started shooting everyone in sight.

    Try again.
