    Chicago, and New York City... Heartache's in the lead...

    The two cities in this country with the most onerous gun laws, are neck and neck in the first day of the New Year...

    10 shot in Chicago,1 dead.
    7 shot in NYC , 1 clinging to life.

    They really should pass laws against killing people in those cities.

    532 was the final number in Chicago for 2012. I see they are starting this year off with a bang as well.

    No trees were harmed in the construction of this post. However a large number of electrons were indiscriminately aroused.

    I'm rooting for NY!

    More gun laws would probably help. More soda laws too. You can never have too many of those.

    I wonder if some of those shootings were caused by people that couldn't get drinks larger than 16ozs. Lack of caffeine can make you do strange things.

    In a moment of morbid humor I bet lunch with a co-worker last week that the over/under for Chicago was 510. Looks like he's buying.

    What? They don't have laws against killing each other?

    Don't these people pay attention to the laws they have?
