WOW!

A 33% kill ratio? They’re either using larger calibers, have had some range time, or just getting some good hits,

Usually the kill to wound ratio is ten percent or so.

I like a 0% kill ratio from thugs. Their range is the streets and it sounds like they have been getting a lot of practice to me.

“Across the city?” I doubt that. I suspect it is heavily concentrated in one limited portion of the city.

That maybe true; however, an off-duty Chicago police officer that was recently assaulted outside his home stated that no place in Chicago is safe.

They should have moved to a ‘gun-free zone.’ Now it’s too late.

Or we could try moving the criminals to a gun-free zone, but I suspect that zone would not be gun-free for long.

Chicago is a “gun free zone” so there cannot be any shootings. There are no guns in Chicago except for the cops, politicians, dopers, gangbangers, Mafia members, and assorted thugs.

Well, I feel less unsafe in a city where 4 probable gangsters are shot by other gangsters than I would in New York, where the father of a preschool child was dragged from his car and beat up by a city cop and his cycle gang pals. Jack.

Personally, I’d feel safer in a city where none of that stuff happens, but that’s a city of long ago, not modern America.

Guess I’m just a Silly Old Guy to find that kind of thing shocking.
