    No, that is a question. That is not attributing blame. Do you not know the difference?

    By the way Dayton, your link is faulty anyway. It cites violent deaths, not just gun deaths.

    What difference does it make? What is so special about deaths via firearms?

    In this case "question" and "blame" are one and the same.

    Well it makes a difference when the study is "violent" deaths as opposed to gun deaths when we're talking about a country where Bashir Al Assad drops bombs on entire buildings.

    In short, despite being in a warzone, Syrians aren't shooting each other up as much as you guys.

    You do know that gun deaths in the United States are (despite Chad's idiotic threads) pretty well concentrated in a relative handful of areas. You can see that by looking at the difference in Chicago, Il. and Morris, Il. (where my former boss and mentor is from).

    so, essentially wherever there are more people, there are more murders.

    I'm gonna go out on a limb that these are totals rather than percentages?

    Pretty much… try comparing it to a population density map.

    For starters, outside of Chicago the shaded counties in Illinois contain Rockford, Peoria, Champaign, Springfield, and East St. Louis.

    Definitely numbers and not percentages.

    I’d be curious to see a percentage map because I suspect some of those pale areas would be darker than they are on this map and some of the darker counties might be a little lighter.
