50 People Shot

It must be a slow news day, the local stations are reporting 50 people were shot over the weekend in Chicago, 8 killed. Year to date 969 were shot with 191 killed.

I guess things slowed down - the initial report I saw was 31 shot over 12 hours on Saturday night.

And the Mayor of Baltimore wants to sponsor boxing matches to "reduce violence" in his fair city. Guess Chicago should try having a "spelling bee"....hat tip to Tombstone!

Maybe if we destroyed all of our weapons the murder rate in Chicago,Detroit and the Lou would go down.

Actually that ain't going to happen. But maybe if we had all our magazines modified so that they would hold only hold three rounds no matter what type of gun it is, like the duck hunters, that would reduce the murder rate. This would only work of course if it was on a national voluntary basis of law-abiding gun owners.

50 shot....

That's a lot of ambulances, paramedics, trauma center doctors, surgeons and medical personnel, cops, investigators. Whatcha figure $5-10 million plus ongoing medical costs for weekend of entertainment in the hood?

Here is an interesting website that shows all kinds of stats for Chicago crime.

Hey now, don't be messing with our wanna be gangsta's here in the Lou.....

If you believe the STLPD on crime in St Louis {and we don't} they will tell you that crime/homicides are down. They report that "only" 73 people have been killed so far this year and that the record of 205 in 2017 won't be matched.

They hide so much of what goes on here because it was killing tourism in the downtown area. Billions have been spent over the last 15 years sprucing up the downtown area and the last thing that they want is having out of towners scared to come see our city.

Makes as much sense as running dozens of NICS background checks on me will somehow keeps guns out the hands of criminals.

After a quarter century of NICS, the only logical conclusion is that all these shootings were perpetrated by law-abiding citizens. After all, criminals are prohibited persons and cannot purchase or be in possession of a gun.
