4th of July weekend is not only a time to celebrate America’s birth but also a time to shoot your fellow Americans at alarming levels.

In my town of Chicago, local honor students racked up an impressive 10 kills and 55 injuries. Believe it or not but this is actually a step down from the last two years’ 4th of July weekends, according to the guys at HeyJackass!, however 2015 has been bloodier as whole then 2014 and 2013 (so far).

Some people will blame guns, some will blame rap music, others will blame poverty and others blame will lack of good education, but no one will have the balls to place the blame where it belongs, the gangs who run the neighborhoods and the people of the communities who refuse to cooperate with police.
