There isn't a single correct fact here. Check the NCVS.

Houston: 24+44+6+26= 100%

Chicago metropolitan area pop: 9.5 million   
Houston, TX metropolitan area pop: 6 million   
Chicago estimated 2012  homicides:  504 (unusually high for the city, 423 previous year)   
Houston estimated 2012 homicides: 217    
   
Assuming constant murder rate, this would lead us to estimate that :   
6/9.5=0.6315   
217/x=0.6315   
217/0.6315=343.626 murders   
So the average (around 420)  for Chicago is only about 80 more homicides than expected by Houston's rate, which is already below average for 2012

There are actual studies that prove that hotter temperatures make people more aggressive/escalate fights quicker.

Before we all get into a giant pro/anti gun ********* , I'd just like to point out the statistic that %80 of people in favor of stronger firearm laws have never used a fire arm. All I'm gonna do politely ask that you go to firing range that does rentals, massacre some fresh fruit, and then decide what side of the issue you fall on.
