Interesting comparison of two cities

Interesting comparison – – Coupled with the only possible reason / conclusion for the pronounced differences between the two cities – – It’s quite obvious – – Don’t you think?




Stats can mean different things to different people….



A Tale of Two Cities

Chicago, IL Houston, TX
Population 2.7 million 2.15 million
Median HH Income $38,600 $37,000
% African-American 38.9% 24%
% Hispanic 29.9% 44%
% Asian 5.5% 6%
% Non-Hispanic White 28.7% 26%

Pretty similar until you compare the following:

Chicago, IL Houston, TX
Concealed Carrygun law no yes
# of Gun Stores 0 184 – Dedicated gun stores plus 1500 – legal places to buy guns- Walmart, K-mart, sporting goods, etc.
Homicides, 2012 1,806 207
Homicides per 100K 38.4 9.6
Avg. January high temperature  (F) 31 63


Cold weather from global warming causes murder. 🙂


Note: In the future some of these stats may change because as all you knowledgeable gun people know during 2014 Illinois was forced by the courts to allow Concealed Carry in the state. So it may help the crime rates in the future there. We can only hope, but based on these Stats there is nothing really going to help them until this whole Global Warming cold weather thing goes away;-)

Take care and Stay Safe
