    It's a beautiful and fun city so long as you stay out of the hood where 99% of these shootings happen.

    I hear the winters are rough enough to make even Philly natives go running.

    Wow. That's a terrible statistic. Very unfortunate.

    I suppose the good news is last year Christmas weekend resulted in 6 deaths and 30 injuries... so this is actually better than last year. :(

    Were the shooters Christian or Muslim or doesn't it matter for discussion in this thread for stereotypical purposes?

    The stereotypical purposes of this discussion are satisfied by focusing on their race in this case, not their religion.

    Surely it couldn't have anything to do with guns.

    Overall, Chicago is a pretty safe city. These shootings mostly happen in just a handful of neighborhoods. Chicago is a purposefully segregated city. These neighborhoods have been designed to be poverty stricken with food deserts being the norm. Even basic needs like nutrition are a challenge. Poverty, the hopelessness that comes with it, and a close proximity to easily obtained firearms (Indiana) are the reasons for the violence. Violence is unacceptably high right now, but it is by no means historic as compared to the 1970's, 1980's, and 1990's.

    Maybe Obama should make books as easy to get as guns

    Right-wingers complain that Obama has overstepped his bounds as president. Then they post nonsensical garbage like this.

    R-wingers just like left wingers will always complain. Still you complain just deflect from Obama. 4 billion nutrition program that kids hated. How about a 4 billion books program? Nah that might get folks educated

    The blue ones are probably all right but I would stay clear of the black and grey neighbourhoods.

    So which neighborhoods demographically are perpetuating all this violence and murder?

    Actually, you have a point. Schools in high crime areas are extremely underfunded. But let's be honest, the Right cares more about guns than proper education for the lower class.

    If you actually think the GOP will vote for funding 4 million books for kids and schools, then I'll sell you every bridge in this entire world.

    I thought you were a liberal. If so you can't point out that Chicago, with its extremely strict guns laws, has gun violence. Those laws are supposed to work or at least make the left feel better.
