Fact: mass murders are up dramatically since Obama took office. There were two mass shootings last week alone. Also, domestic terrorism plots are up dramatically since Obama took office. Obama's hometown of Chicago is one of the most murderous places on the planet; 15,000 people have been murdered in Chicago since 1990. Enjoy that hope and change.

Fact (Source FBI Uniform Crime Report): Firearm murders by year: 2011 - 8583 2010 - 8775 2009 - 9146 2008 - 9528 2007 - 10129 2006 - 10225 2005 - 10158 6.15% reduction since Obama took office. I'm not saying that Obama is directly responsible from the decline, I'm just saying that your claims are erroneous.

Also, callmeron, Chicago isn't even in the top ten for violent crime rates. And while your stat is technically true, there's been over a 50% drop in Chicago homicide since the first Bush administration. It really saddens me when people randomly make up numbers to make political points...
