  •  Guns are the problem - now and more so in the (5+ / 0-)

    future.  Without easy access to guns the rage, stupidity, gangbanging, mental illness and stress would not lead to these daily, perhaps hourly, horrors.  And we are stockpiling weapons and munitions all over this country so our current criminal loss of life problem will become a political and societal problem when the Limbaughs and others in this world help prompt the creation of militais on behalf of the oligarchs that have stupidly decided that their immediate gratification and property rights will benefit form governmental and societal breakdown.  There is a deliberate effort to destory the American social contract;  with guns in the streets this problem will lead to death and destruction, not to political agitation as it should in a democracy.  The stakes are high.

    Sure poverty is a problem and the racism, lack of social support and education, poverty, and the deliberate incarceration of a large proportion of African Americans at some point in their lives is a direct cause to the deaths in Chicago.  But take away the guns and the hourly loss of lives is no longer the principal consequence of this situation
