About: gang deaths often involve youth and guns, not drugs | the raw story

I didn't hear anything about blaming gangs for the homicide statistics out of O'bamma.

Re-framing the NRA as just a gun lobby & owning your own protection as gun violence is part of the fighting memes surrounding the attempt to destroy the 2nd amendment to the US Constitution. It is strange that legal owners exercising their 2nd amendment right are the only ones who will be affected & the criminals, gangs & gansters (see pic above) will continue to boogie onward.
Of interest also is the ethnicity of those committing gun violence, so far not mentioned in the news.

Here is another interesting set of statistics on homicides by guns by race:

During the past year, murderous violence swept over the city in waves of shocking brutality. On Friday and Saturday, the Chicago Tribune reported, three were killed and 22 shot in gunfire across the city. The article describes a veritable war zone. The newspapers and television stations have become diaries of murder, bloodshed, and violence, most of it gang related

Before last weekend, the body count was at least 42 dead and 188 wounded just for July 4 and five other weekends of gunfire from February through May.

According to the Chicago Tribune, “Violent crime has long afflicted minorities in Chicago at a much higher rate than the rest of the population, and the spike in homicides in the first half of this year provides an especially stark measure: 201 of the 259 homicide victims were African-American.”

While blacks make up about 33 percent of the city's population, they accounted for nearly 78 percent of the homicide victims through the first six months of 2012.

By comparison, just 11 homicide victims in the first six months of the year were white, and 44 were Hispanic, according to police data.

The newspaper reported that most violent crime occurs in black neighborhoods, and that “a majority of both homicide victims and offenders are young black men with criminal records. With one exception, African-Americans have made up more than 70 percent of homicide victims in Chicago every year for the last two decades.”

... This is a city run by liberals for liberals with the toughest laws on guns.
There is cognitive dissonance here my friends!
