A shoot-’em-up Chicago holiday weekend

A shoot-’em-up Chicago holiday weekend, by Taki Theodoracopulos.

The Fourth of July weekend saw at least 66 people shot in Chicago—one more than last year. …

Interestingly, not a single shooting occurred north of Armitage Avenue. Chicago’s north side is predominantly white and also presumably well-armed. This would suggest to a rational mind that the problem has nothing to do with guns but rather the type of people who are willing to use them on the streets.

As mentioned previously, gun violence seems to be acceptably low among the white sub-population in the US, but unfortunately high among the black sub-population.
