Some non-PC play with numbers. If the unemployed are shooting each other then the actual unemployment rate is much higher as their ranks are not only replenish but also keep increasing.

However, increased gun use, demand for ammo and funeral services would imply that there should be an increase of jobs into the market. This is not reflected by the above numbers. So what is really happening?
