This violence has all the hallmarks of climate change:

“Is it higher? Yes. Last year, we hit a record number of murders from guns, and this year, we were already outpacing last year’s numbers. Now, there are contributing factors that are not under anybody’s control, and it may seem odd, but it is factually true, one of them is actually the weather. There is a dramatic increase in gun violence when it is warmer, and we are having this climate-change effect that is driving that.

Are you sure it wasn't due to George Bush visiting Chicago in January? Sounds more plausible than global warming - oops, can't say that anymore cause it's been disproved - um, climate change.
