I would think that the bad economy in Chicago would contribute to the higher number of homicides. Accounting that a large number of the non criminal working and more educated people left the city.

Also so I can tell you that Houston cops don't pussy foot around when in come to law enforcement.

Just maybe criminals are a little more bold when it is less likely someone will start shooting back.

What are you suggesting, Robert? Shut down the Military, and stop pumping oil, and the killing in Houston would be equal to Chicago? If not Global Warming, why do they commit 9 times as many homicides in Chicago than Houston? Oh, I get it, you blame it on some folks who work for the Military, and some who have good jobs pumping oil to make gas for us all. Otherwise, if all of those folks didn't work in those jobs, Homicides would equal those of Chicago? I don't think you're even close to prime time thinking yet. Sorry.

Now lets look at some of the major government investments that the one city has and the other does not.

Huston is located near to 5 major military instalations, Chicago is not.

Huston has five large oil refineries, Chicago has none. (Government tax breaks to oil companies enable these refineries to remain open.)

These two points along generation thousands of first tier jobs which generate hundreds of thousands of second tier jobs which branch out further.

Conclusion? Like most every republican or conservative area in the US, either the US government must invest billions of dollars into tax breaks or direct funding like a military base and leave the more democratic areas without such levels of funding.

Yet despite the differences in government funding, the conservative areas are still living equal to or less than the democratic areas in way of wages and benefits. The only difference is that the conservatives have more jobs, which keep people busy... But these are government jobs, not private sector jobs.

Well, here's some new data published in an Omaha Paper sent on to me by a friend comparing Homicide rates in Houston and Chicago in 2012:

Population: Chicago 2.7 million Houston 2.15 million Median Income 2.7 VS 2.15; Median Household Income $38,600 VS $37,000; % African American 38.9% VS 24%; % Hispanic American 29.9% VS 44%; % Asian 5.5% VS 6%; % Non Hispanic White 28.7% VS 26%: Concealed Gun Law in effect, NO VS YES; Number of Gun Stores Zero VS 184 dedicated plus 1500 legal places to buy guns like K-mart, etc; Homicides 1806 VS 207; Homicides per capita 38.4 VS 9.6; Average January Temp, 31 VS 63 Degrees F.

Democrat conclusion: Cold weather caused by Global Warming causes Murder in large cities.

I don't know anything about your particular gun but I do know that if it is in operating condition it will be worth more should you wish to sell it. Even if you never intend to fire it.

Sexy- don't Destroy the firearm, as Some would suggest. It would destroy the value ( if any) . Especially if it were an heirloom piece.

some have no clue .

Again, Thanks, Guys. I think I'll take it to a gun shop and have the guy put in operating condition if it doesn't cost too much. If I want to carry concealed, I have a sweet little Beretta .25 cal that carries a surprising wallop with hollow points. I can hold that gun in my right hand and almost make it disappear.
