Once again, I don't think that's it. I, myself, am unemployed at the moment, and the thought of shooting up people has never once crossed my mind. I mean, who can even afford to shoot people up? Ammunition is expensive!
Zelkiiro, If you don't think thats it, thats o'k, if you don't want to think about it. You can't put yourself in mind set of the premanently 40% unemployed for decades. That would be like comparing your economic activities with the economic activity of the Federal Government. Its like comparing oranges and apples. Trust me Zelkiiro, I'm an underclassman, massive long term group unemployment causes violence, always have and always will.
My post was more in jest than anything. But if we're gonna be serious, the marginal majority of gun violence is more likely to come from inner-city gangs fighting over territory and drugs. And only one of those things can be solved via legalization.
But naturally, there will be those who believe thousands of people dying in the streets by getting shot in the face is preferable to some people getting high off their ass in their apartment somewhere.
zelkiiro, I was not jesting when I said, unemployment and not climate change was the cause of gun violence in Chicago. I thought you didn't really know that truth. That problem can't be solved by legalization of guns it's an employment problem. Iam sorry I don't trivialize gun violence, it's serious here.
217 murders 90% male 94% black 95% adult 79% with criminal records 61% with drug arrests 45% with prior gun crimes
82% victims with criminal records 68% victims with drug arrests 37% victims with prior gun crimes
I would imagine most large urban areas are going to be somewhat similar to this. It's usually drug-related, usually gang-related, and usually happens between people who have records, both the suspect and the victim.
Close enough. On April 19, 1775, the British tried to take military supplies from the colonists, resulting in the Battles of Lexington and Concord. While she's not entirely right, she has the general idea. This really isn't that stupid, and it has far more merit than you are giving to it.
