NOV 3, 2017 CHICAGO GUN VIOLENCE DOWN FOR 8th STRAIGHT MONTH
(CHICAGO) -- The Chicago police department’s monthly crime summary
released Wednesday features a headline that may change the gun violence
narrative that’s focused so much attention on this city.
For the eighth month in a row, gun violence has declined. October saw a
30-percent drop in murders compared to the same month last year and a 34
percent reduction in shootings, according to the report. For the year so
far, there have been 57 fewer murders than in 2016, a decline of almost
10 percent. The drop in shootings is even more dramatic: 545 less than
in 2016, a reduction of over 18 percent.
Police attribute the progress mainly to enhanced technology and more
focused intelligence gathering on the gangs that have generated most of
the gun violence. Anthony Riccio, chief of the Chicago police Organized
Crime Bureau, tells ABC News that “strategic support centers” set up in
some of the city’s most violent districts have played a major role.
These centers combine computerized information about people in those
areas likely to commit crimes -- data such as police records and
incident reports -- with intelligence gathered by officers on the
street. The result is what the CPD calls “predictive policing” that
tells the cops where and when to deploy officers, preventing gun
violence before it occurs.
“It’s been pretty accurate,” said Riccio. “All this information and
analysis tells us where we believe we’re going to see violence. It’s
much more laser-focused than we’ve had in the past.”
The police have also cited an increased number of gunshot detectors
called ShotSpotters set up around the city’s most violent neighborhoods.
These audio sensors detect and locate the source of gunshots quickly,
immediately transmitting the information to police allowing them to
respond before 911 calls come in about the shots.
But the progress must still be measured against a year in which the
city’s homicide numbers spiked significantly and drew national
attention. In 2016, Chicago recorded 762 murders, an increase of nearly
60 percent from the year before.

8/6 2012 Google Drops AdSense on Gunshows-USA.com
haven't noticed all Google ads disappeared from the site about a month ago.
Google decided we where to weapons related for their taste and dropped the ads
from the site. This in effect cut the revenue for the site in half!
We have been busy finding other advertising networks and are building the sites
ad base back up. We will continue with the service, but maybe not as fast
and robust, by adding employees and doing advertising ourselves for a while
until we're back to where we where.
This site was created in February 2001. 15 full years of online
information on locations and dates for gun shows throughout the
United States and Canada! Here's looking toward another successful
year at being the #1 gun show Web site on the internet.
You can also find GunShows-USA on Facebook and Twitter:

to include headers instead of hard coded heads being used. Viewers
may experience some problems loading some pages during the day.
Should be complete by 5:00 pm central standard time!
4/23/2012 We have just added credit card service so promoters can
use there cards for payments for additional advertising. We had
fought it for years
because of the cost but decided to offer it
as an extra service to the folks that have been paying the bills for the
site for several years.
3/26/2012 Monday morning and we have our new
dedicated servers up and running! We will be adding new features
to the site over the next couple of months as well as continuing to keep
up with the listings of all of the latest shows. Stay tuned and
