I thought only Chicago didn't allow guns in the city.

As of June 13th, 2012, there have been 225 murders in Chicago by guns. If the pace is kept up it would be 400 by the end of the year. 967 shootings so far of non fatalities.

Chicago is a terrible city. Violence abounds.

Yes it happens here all the time, especially in the summer when it is hot, 19 people is a slow night on a weekend and average for mid week. You don't hear much about it because it is mostly gang or minority on minority violence and the Chicago political machine wants to keep it quiet so their ideas on control do not come into question. I have no problem if gang members take each other out, but there are a lot of times when innocents get caught in the crossfire, or are victims of an armed thug.

Not to derail the thread anymore, but yes I believe this past weekend was pretty slow in Chicago with 30 injured by gunshots, I do not remember the number deceased.
