    A sad indictment of how out of control the gun situation in the US. Good to see you posting some negative stories about the terrible impact of guns for balance southern dad.

    Considering that Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws around, I'd say that it isn't working. It was safer in Atlanta where we are allowed to be armed.

    One would have thought you'd have a bit if sympathy for the dead and wounded. Instead you'll use their warm carcasses as ammunition to attack gun laws. You're all class. The reflection that should be done here is the terrible, indelible impact that guns have on your society.

    replace guns with criminals, too many gun laws simply do not work.

    I didn't mention gun control. I see you have the same reading comprehension issues as southern dad.

    The people dying from guns are Americans. i.e. Your fellow man. As with southern dad you have no perspective or objectivity.


    Again I didn't mention gun laws. You reading comprehension is woeful x 2.

    So that logic still applies when we talk about entire countries with VERY STRICT gun laws?

    Why is America the least safe? if we have guns?

    AS far as Atlanta goes, i would hope it has less violence and crime rates than Chicago. its a MUCH smaller city with less people.

    Well, I'd venture to guess that there are far more Americans in Chicago than there are in Afghanistan, so it's kinda hard for me to understand why this is (or isn't) a big deal without more information.

    Now if you have murder rates between the two places, that might be a bit more telling.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again - our high murder rate isn't because we have more guns. It's because we live among more *******s.

    So you'd rather fight the issue of people being shot and killed by being able to shoot and kill other people.

    Again, thank you for being part of the problem, not the solution.

    No, no, no...it's because of our freedom!!

    That's a pretty funny line. I'm taking that. ©samiwas

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. It is simply not possible for a place where people are allowed to cary anywhere to have more crime!

    I had no idea that Atlanta was more violent than Chicago.

    ----------

    So.

    America is the only country in the developed world with Criminals?

    that is a fallacy, we would rather no one got shot. but criminals for some reason are not cooperating.

    ----------

    of course not, the ones here simply don't care much for laws.

    Or.

    In first world countries, yes guns might be largely illegal. And yes, people still get them from time to time. But even illegally they are very hard to get.

    In America, you are tripping over guns. There are more guns than people in America.

    ----------

    Turns out, as posted above, I was wrong.

    Atlanta is more violent than Chicago.

    Your post shows homicides. Not death by guns. Also 4 year old statistics.

    The south loves to drink. Are drunk driving deaths considered homicides?

    I'm sure the guns they have don't factor into their ignoring laws.

    If the criminals cared for the laws, they wouldn't be criminals. :|

    And by "safer" you mean "less safe"?

    Based on the figures from city-data.com, Atlanta's homicide rate was worse than Chicago in 12 out of 13 years.
