Chicago's 500 homicides: How we got here

"There are 500 more people that were in the city that are no longer here because of useless violence ... People don't have regard for life anymore."

Chicago's 500th homicide of the year happened over Labor Day weekend,according to the Chicago Tribune.

That number carries a lot of weight for the city -- not just in quantity, but in meaning: 2016 is now the deadliest year in two decades.

So they admit most of the guns involved in all the violence are obtained illegally! The others would be police shootings.
