    I agree, if a chicago man did this the media wouldn't say Illinois man, they'd say Chicago man...

    Now about who has a lot more gun deaths-

    Daily beast 2010

    Illinois had 8 per 100,000 tied with Nebraska

    Now who had more-
    Maine
    N Dakota
    Utah
    Colorado
    TEXAS with 10.7
    Kansas
    N Carolina
    Missouri
    Georgia
    Idaho
    Oklahoma with 13.4
    Tennessee with 15
    W Virginia
    Kentucky
    Wyoming with 14.5 along with Montana
    Alabama
    Arkansas
    Alaska with 17.6
    Mississippi with 18.3

    Another way to look at this-
    Texas had approx 26 million folks in 2010
    Illinois 12.8 million

    So Texas has a higher firearm death rate per 100,000 AND over double the population.

    So yeah Texas has more in total and more per 100,000.

    That's not true at all....more total gun deaths and more murders per inhabitant happen in Texas. Fox News rots your brain.

    Gun deaths is a completely different measurement than he used. If you wish to be dishonest at least be less blatant about it.

    How dare you put numbers to that claim you gun grabby fascist freedom hating person who uses logic and reason. It is so not right for you to just completely disprove the BS claims of the gun nuts. You and your truth.

    You mean like how wonderfully Obama's last gun violence study went. I bet that backed up your claims.

    Of course, the problem isn't that this guy was going to shoot at the White House, the problem is that conservative Texans are being persecuted by the media.

    There's no way you can claim IL has a high amount or higher rate of gun deaths, or any kind of murder, than Texas without being dishonest. You have no basis at all to call his comment dishonest, the facts are the facts.
