|Population||2.7 million||2.15 million|
|Median HH Income||$38,600||$37,000|
|% Non-Hispanic White||28.7%||26%|
Pretty similar until you compare the following:
|Chicago, IL||Houston, TX|
|Concealed Carry – Legal||No||Yes|
|# of Gun Stores||None||184 Dedicated gun stores plus 1500 legal places to buy guns -Wal-Mart, K-mart, sporting goods, etc…|
|Homicides per 100K||38.4||9.6|
|Avg. January high temperature (F)||31||63|
Conclusion: Cold weather causes murders. This is due to global warming…And, Maybe Chicago needs more gun stores….
