And the police report that they have had "Significantly fewer" shootings and murders this year!

How is that gun control working out?

How can this be? There are laws against guns there. Are you saying the criminals don't abide by the laws? haha

There have been 441 shootings and 100 homicides in the city of Chicago so far this year, according to a blog that tracks crime in Chicago.

That works out to 3.8 shootings per day or approximately one shooting every 6.3 hours.

The "Crime in Chicago" blog updates daily and tracks crime news within the city. It keeps a running tally of all homicides and shootings.

In 2012, the blog shows that 2,670 individuals were shot in Chicago. That was up 20% from 2,217 in 2011.

Likewise, the number of homicides in 2012 was 535, up 21% from 441 in 2011.

Note: The shootings tally for 2013 is as of April 7th and the homicide tally is as of April 18th.
