This doesn't count Aurora, Co. (movie theatre massacre) Phoenix, Az. (Congress woman Giford shot and several other's killed) etc. etc.
That's less than one year in Obama's "hometown" of Chicago.

Chicago is close to ending 2011 with fewer murders than last year, which saw the lowest number of those violent crimes in nearly a half a century, according to the Police Department.
From January through Tuesday, there were 423 murders in Chicago compared to 431 through the same period last year, according to preliminary statistics released by the department.
The statistics represent a steady decline since 2008, when the city had 513 murders. A year later, that number was down to 459.
