Fair enough argument, the idea of this list is to give more of a broad perspective as it can be hard to find particular homicide counts for every single city continuously. With the way the Gun Violence Archive works it includes all gun violence homicides and automatically sources some from nearby suburbs in some instances (examples: Atlanta, St Louis, Pittsburgh). Someone else mentioned how it’s not reliable because it includes some suicides and counts some incidents twice, while that is true it doesn’t happen very often making the data reliable. For instance, my home city of Fort Worth only has one suicide that got put on the list this year. Hopefully this makes a little bit more sense now.
