Yes people just throw a several hundred dollar gun on the floor in the hopes of changing racial statistics in the hood.


Or we can just accept that there are sub cultures in the US that aren't as good as we keep hoping and stop white washing the problems so they can be addressed.

An interesting note is that the government murder statistics count Hispanics as white, which doubles the "white" murders. If you were to factor out Hispanics and look only at white non-Hispanics the murder rate would be commensurate with Europe's average murder rate.

In your dreams. That's the last place those guns come from.

frontline: hot guns: "How Criminals Get Guns" | PBS

"Stolen guns account for only about 10% to 15% of guns used in crimes"
We are talking about an administration that allowed assault weapons to freely filter into drug cartel's hands resulting in hundreds of Mexicans getting shot as well as some Americans.

How did Obama respond to questions?

1) Lies, blamed it falsely on Bush.

2) Then used executive privilege to shut down the investigation. So much for the most transparent administration in US History.

3) Then Holder, his AG, lied to congress over it too!

The entire nation freaked out, that the former slaves would be armed. And it began.

It is 5x's harder for a Black person today, to get a CCL.
Places with huge black communities, have disarmed the population in history, over and over.

Last week, I was watching The First 48. A man was shot and killed in a drug deal. They were able to get the killer along with the gun he used. He plead guilty and was sentenced to five years.

If you want less gun murders, give long sentences to those who commit murders with guns.

Do you have any data to support that claim?

Many areas you simply need to pass the NICS check to get a CCL.

You can blame the American Trucking Industry for that. Imagine that, moving goods from point of production to point of demand!!!!
