    You sure it’s just poverty?
    Poverty + proximity and competition for resources.

    I’d argue it’s interesting to watch the Right always do that.

    Nobody talks about gang violence? Without gang violence gun “control” wouldn’t even be an issue that gets discussed nationally.

    I don’t expect rationale responses from people that would allow their children to be mutilated.

    What exactly is the issue with considering per capita figures? Obviously I’m keenly aware that I’m safer in the middle of nowhere in Arkansas than I am in inner-city Chicago, but the figures underscore that there is more to the story than people in cities just being inherently more violent. Violence is happening everywhere, but when it’s so dramatically concentrated, it creates a worse environment.

    Where I find your argument empty is when you ignore that millions of people being situated on top of each other is going to inherently lead to more violence. Not just from the concentration of people, but the issues that stem from that concentration.

    Guessing thethe is inferring that blacks have a culture of violence and the whole single parent family thing, which is hard to argue against. But I’d argue those are just as much symptoms of poverty, proximity and scarcity of resources as gun homicides.

    Unfortunately with all difficult issues, we all want a silver bullet fix, and solving black poverty is nigh impossible, so around and around we go with debates about gun control, birth control, etc.

    Its all about fatherless homes which then creates a culture of lack of discipline. Again, this is just on average and not for every single instance.

    Single parent homes are not caused by poverty (especially since welfare systems in place are supportive enough to provide with a stable household assuming the parents are sticking together). Its caused by decaying culture within the community and the incentives that exist for parents to split.

    The concentration is not causing the violence. The lack of stable households is the problem. The culture of victimhood within young black male youth is the problem.

    Houston Judge Christopher M. López reportedly ended a stay preventing Sandy Hook families from collecting a $1.5 billion judgment against conspiracy theorist Alex Jones.
