    Lets compare america, land of the free, to any other country, cause they are all free countries like america....

    People think being "free" comes at a cost of "free"...it doesn't , there's sacrifices to keeping our freedom free....and the lost of lives is part of it..again
    look at how many lives lost every single year from tobacco, why don't you give a fuck about that? when 17x more people die from it then guns...
    why isn't this issue more pressed!..

    Look at the graph. Murders peaked in 1990 at 2600, hence why 400 is an impressive number.

    because people choose to smoke you fuckin retard.
    as opposed to ..I think today im going to choose to get murdered by a gun..

    how many people die from alcohol related deaths?..
    your comparing choices to random acts of violence and for that your a retard. You shouldn't own a gun because your not capable of a simple thought.


    last year in a city of over a million where I live, we had 49 murders and the city was outraged. They hired more police and started programs in the inner city to help combat the violence.
    This year we had 25.

    have you heard about 2nd hand smoke?....it kills 42,000 non US smokers a year..

    almost 1.7 as many as guns...
    your next argument?....

    edit: 900 being infants (you'd need sandy hook repeated 45 times to equal that)

    none of what you say is proven. Cancer kills 42000 non smokers which can be from a number of things

    comprehension...get some

    That was in reference to what the CDC estimates, and it says many researchers say its unreliable, it wasn't in reference to the study at University of California.

    Continue reading where it says UCSF took a NEW approach..
    did you graduate??

    No, im not deflecting, i think there are larger problems with death then guns themselves.

    If LIFE is the most important thing here, then why are we worried about so little deaths caused by guns...yet we shun away to the hundreds of thousands lost by tobacco and alcohol..

    I just thought its common fking sense that if we really care about human life we would attack the biggest problems, not the smallest..

    point being, the people, like yourself, you don't really care about life or death in this country. If you did, you would attack the real issue with people dying, not the small ones.

    Chicago the birthplace / motherland of the Latin Kings organization and all the Latin Folks mobs... And the latin gangs are some of the wildest one's doing it.

    Pretty sure there would still be alot of murders. Too many gangs, tbh.

    Far as the gun argument. Majority of shorties doing these shootings don't have FOID cards anyways. In other words, they're not getting guns legally so the gun LAWS have absolutely nothing to do with this. They could be more strict or more lenient. Wouldn't matter. They getting guns off the streets, or robbing people for their guns. Not getting them from gun shops, tbh.

    The real issues that have to be looked at are PARENTING and youth groups among other things to curb gang violence in low income areas. There's just not enough being done, tbh.

    they are live but they don't drop bodies even close to what black gangs do... not even comparable in chicago...

    and dude might be alright around humboldt park cause it's hit and miss and really is surrounded by some decent areas...

    now englewood it's a problem.... k town it's a problem... low end... east side... etc... all problems

    I remember back when the low end used to be miles of projects... as far as they eyes could see
