What their analysis says is that US Homicides are clearly concentrated into city areas of:
High Poverty, Low Educational Attainment, and Racially segregated 'Black' Areas - where most victims are black males.
All the facts show that this is clear .. but how long will it be before some politician calls their report "Racist" ?
Our administrators seek to label these cruel deaths as being a GUN PROBLEM - but it is obvious that it is a social problem caused by the politicians themselves failing continually to direct tax funding into these deliberately neglected areas of society.
The cures are - better schools - better health care - better employment opportunities - better housing - and better law enforcement.
I'm no economist - but I'd just about guarantee that moneys spent on those improvements would be more than repaid long-term by reductions in the hideous costs of anti-social criminal actions.
Further - I maintain that many other 'western' nations cities suffer similar problems that would benefit from similar correction.
What we truly have is a 'Politician Problem' - not a Gun Problem.
