    Also not far from Riverdale, had zero murders.  Aurora has the same strict gun control as Chicago.  I favor gun control, for sure.  But David Mizner's been writing comments above about the fact that this is a hybrid problem of poverty, community violence and the easy availability of guns.  That perspective is very persuasive to me - worth considering.
