lol 423 shootings in LA so far this year, Vancouver ain't bad at all.

VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) - Metro Vancouver may lead the country in gun violence, but our region has nothing on places like L.A. and Chicago.

So far there have been around 30 shootings in Metro Vancouver and Abbotsford this year, 12 of them deadly by the Vancouver Sun's count.

Compare that with Toronto, with roughly double our region's population. It's recorded 34 shootings in 2009, eight of those fatal. Calgary has seven shootings in 2009, four of those deadly.

On the other hand Los Angeles has had 423 shootings, with 54 of those turning out to be homicides. Even when you factor in that L.A. has nearly five times the population of the Lower Mainland -- its murder rate easily dwarfs ours.

yeah, because being compared to LA crime rates is exactly what we should be aiming for. it just means we've already lost.

Iran is not a war zone and most of these Iranian guys come from well to do families.

If you come from a well off family. Why join a gang? Can't be for money since you/your family already has a lot.

Honestly I have no idea why rich kids get involved, I guess for fun maybe too much disposable income? I grew up with two guys, lived on the west side their entire lives because their grandpa is a multi-millionaire. One of them got married a couple years ago and he gave him money to build a house by UBC but they sell drugs and hang with shady characters. I remember some Persian Pride members back in my HS days that had empty houses to themselves in West Vancouver while their parents sat in Iran who sent them money every month.

I actually am glad there are more shootings. I WANT to see chaos in the streets.
It sounds bad but I think a lot of people do> I know I do, then the gov't might realize that taking firearm rights away from law abiding citizens doesn't "get the job done" after all
