Is Gun Violence Across America Really On the Rise?


With mass shootings and hysteria created over alleged terrorism, many politicians are quick to blame guns and claim gun violence is at an epidemic level.

Is it?

Generally, no.

Some places, like Aurora or Chicago in Illinois, have seen surges in shootings and violence but that is connected to systemic problems of poverty, corruption, bad policy and bad politicians.

Communities like Naperville, across the street from Aurora, are NOT experiencing the same crisis of a 150% increase in shootings or, as corrupt Aurora crony cop Kristen Ziman says is an "uptick."

This doesn't mean guns are not a legitimate part of the debate over reducing violence but as tempting as it is to focus on mass shootings, terrorists, NRA and the second amendment, it's important to look at the facts.

Meanwhile, some will claim gun violence and car deaths are now the same but that is not because gun violence has increased.

It's because of safer cars and that number will continue to plummet as self-driving cars emerge and more technology is integrated into cars for more safety.

I don't want my $9,528 tax bill going to pay for wine parties, sex toys, wife swapping, sex in parks while working, free teaching trips or hiring unqualified family members. I don't believe everything here but where there is smoke there must be fire.

Hey 1:59

I agree 100% But some money is still being wasted. I saw 3 cops walking into the police station, they were all wearing the new powder blue uniforms. That Dean dude must have politicial pull or someone has a deal with a uniform company. How much will it cost to buy a few hundred of those awful looking things.

Does the mayor want his police to look like baby blue panzies. I will puke when I see the first baby blue police car.

Do you think that the guy that makes the quilts also makes uniforms now and pays Dean a kick back. I figure $15 for each shirt times 3 shirts for each cop is about $9000.

From what I read the city money doesn't buy wine or sex toys. The money is spent when somebody feels cheated or misused and files a lawsuit and the city pays out money to cover up.

Did Alex A get hired yet at the Park District? How about Rosario DeLeon? Anybody from Aurora's Parks dept?

Is that the same Ziman I read about that was having a three some with Tunny and his wife and another cops wife, if so he must be a horse of a man.

Is Deleon retiring from the police and wanting to double dip at the park district. Maybe he could work for the pumpkin man making quilts or blue shirts with the Dean freak or give massages. Plowing snow or cutting grass would be much different than being a cop and having sex or drinking wine. However he would be in the parks where the cops go.

Best advice of all is to move out of Aurora and that sad laughing stock of a State. Flee 7,000 units of local government along with the decline, deterioration, violence and crap weather. They make great deep dish pizza and Italian beefs elsewhere and you can watch your Cubbies in a television package someplace else. It ain't gonna change, folks no matter who's the Mayor or Govenor.

I see that police protect and serve, Is it protect the family hiring and "SERVE" each other wine and sexual favors.
