500 Murders yes, 500 by gun in 2012, absolute lye.
..........
Chicago experienced its 500th murder of the year on Thursday night, when a 40-year-old man was shot to death in the Austin neighborhood. It was only the second time in the last ten years the city has reached that mark. In 2008, 513 people were murdered.

I bet you would like us to think those 500 murders were by gun too , don't you.
How about76% were by fire arms.
That would be 380 murders caused by firearms in a city with a population of over 2.7 million people in 2012.
That means that only 0.00014074074% of the population of Chicago were victims of gun violence.
And you say gun laws don't work, the numbers say they do.
But based on 2011 figures of less than 9000 fire arm related deaths in the USA and a population in excess of 300 million, that would put the Chicago rate at about 5 times the national rate. You can prove anything you want with statistics, except that you have a clue as to the real world.

hold on a minute, let's have a look at that'


Chicago rate avg per CIT.--0.00014074074


National rate(Inc CHI) 8583 deaths caused by gun shot.

2011 Census USA POP 3.5 million
8583/3.5 million = 0.0002764251


looks like to me Chicago is still O.00013568436 % below the National avg.

What happen to your real world 5%?

BTW you really do not want to get into a comparison game with this conversation>

Let us back into your stats, three hundred million divided by two point seven million, one hundred eleven. Chicago has how many murders, something like three eighty, now three eighty multiplied by one hundred eleven would make the national death toll something like forty two thousand, I think you haven't mastered the decimal point yet. Chicago has less than one percent of the population but over four percent of the gun related murders, you do the math Einstein.

<quoted text>That decision is between a woman and her doctor. It may save the womans life. It may be because she was raped. There are many other factors. Before abortion clinics came along women were having abortions on their own and sometimes killing or severaly injuring themselves in the process. Who are you to tell someone what they can or cannot do with their own body before a predetermined time agreed by the general populous and a vast majority of the United States?
Do whatever you want to your own body. It's the body of the baby I'm concerned with. If the baby gets killed, why do you care how? Murder or abortion, does it really matter? Is the baby less dead in an abortion. Who are you telling someone that they can justify murder simply because it's their body? Oh I forgot, liberals think when an abortion is performed, what comes out is just a mass of human tissue since the mother decided she didn't want a baby.

Here is a prime example of why one should never go full retard. The USA population is much more than 3.5 million, my special friend. The last I heard it was well over 300 million. So, your national rate should have been (8583/300,000,000).00002861, which is a bit smaller than .00013568436.

Another thing, you would need to remove the Chicago murderds to compare the total 8083/300.000 0.00002694333
Which is a bit higher! 3712.0014414 %

see allot of NUMBERS being tossed around! numbers are funny animals, they can lead you to think allot of things. However if one understands the numbers he is looking at ~ then some good assumptions can be made: Death by GUN would include all deaths caused by a GUN, like if one hunter shoots another hunter (on purpose or by real accident) So to see if GUN CONTROL LAWS work I would guess you would like to see the numbers for those deaths by a gun when the killer was out to do harm? RIGHT

Ok now that I made an opening statement lets look at some of the numbers; #01 = Calif. with 2,392 killed on purpose with a gun (could have been any type gun, shotgun, pistol, rifle)#2 was, Texas with 1,364 next,#03 was, New York with 889 next,#04 was Florida with 883 and at #05 was Illinois with 776 (mass majority in Chicago). At the BOTTOM of the list are; #50 was N. Dakota with 09 (nine) next #49 was Wyoming with 11.

OK, guess we can read allot into this ~ but the FACTS ARE SIMPLE, GUN CONTROL DOES NOT (REPEAT DOES NOT) stop, prevent, or REDUCE MURDER RATES WITH A GUN!!!!

Barney is rather deadly with an a spatula and a deep fryer but you don't see anyone that doesn't eat at his store trying to outlaw kitchen utensils or equipment. The same can be said about guns as Barney, the tool doesn't kill, ineptness does, well maybe Barney the tool does but you know what I meant. If you ever catch me Bipoty understanding statistics, I was trying to trick you, remember that.
