When Gun Violence Felt Like a Disease, a City in Delaware Turned to the C.D.C. So hundreds of millions of gun owners are supposed to give up their right to bear arms because of a few hundred or less assholes per city. No way!

“The majority of individuals involved in urban firearm violence are young men with substantial violence involvement preceding the more serious offense of a firearm crime,” the report said. “Our findings suggest that integrating data systems could help these individuals better receive the early, comprehensive help that they need to prevent violence involvement.”

“You’ve got maybe a few hundred holding the city hostage,” a county councilman, Jea P. Street, said.

““If there were adequate funding on firearm-related research, there would have been papers out on this a decade ago, not just in Wilmington, but in many other large cities,” Dr. Miller said.”

Maybe they should focus on the real reason behind the problem in large cities, like Democrat control, and the welfare state.

Oh, no! That can’t be the problem! We need to throw more of other people’s money at the problem! Jobs for ISIS, take away guns from law abiding people, midnight basketball. That will solve everything.

“A city councilor, Hanifa G. N. Shabazz”

That was all I needed to know.

“The children there “come back to you talking like, ‘Somebody got shot outside my school,’ ” said Sharon Tolbert, 46, a cosmetologist with four children and five grandchildren who attended the day-care center.”

Uhm, do you have to read more?

I’d actually welcome the CDC looking into inner city violence, but the chances of them doing science rather than Blomberg’s Progressive Gun Control insanity are about zero.

What happens when the data comes back that most gun deaths are done by minority male youths that are involved in drugs or gangs? How can they spin that into going out to the suburbs and further to take sporting rifles?

“Questions remain about whether the focus on risk factors before a shooting amounts to profiling people who have not committed a crime,”

– and that is why Progressives aren’t eager for the studies to be done. They might not be able to whitewash and spin it the way they can with the EPA, though they’ll try.

“David Hemenway, a director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center, said that could be a shortcoming of an effort to look at gun violence. “Unfortunately they feel like they can only talk about part of the problem, they can’t talk about the gun part of the problem,” Dr. Hemenway said, adding, “Looking at the supply side — how do they get these destructive weapons?”

Finally a Progressive asshole that can understand the effect of supply-side economics…. How is that they guns that are used in Chicago were not that dangerous until they got into Chicago???

Progressive gun policy is literally crazy.

Yes, interesting about that Harvard director.

Harvard does an annual conference on mental illness, esp Borderline and similar. I’ve listened to a couple lengthy ones on YouTube, and they discuss the early-childhood causes of such problems, illnesses which have been rising about parallel to the downward trend in school grades and teen/young adult violence. Much of it, to spare you the details, comes from neglect. (NOT LACK OF MONEY OR THINGS.)

Well… as hopeful as it may look from the quotes stated, politics will attempt to turn this “problem” on their fave people to blame.

Notwithstanding, also, that in any of these tougher areas of the country, the city/state workers tend to move out upon retirement. I mean, out of the city and more-so, out of the state. That can’t be good for the local economy nor tax receipts… which must keep going up.

Another compelling argument to ban liberals from ownership of guns period. The media makes the case day after day, who kills the most with a gun? democrats/liberals.

Who steals the most?
Democrats/Liberals.

Who lies the most?
Democrats/Liberals/Rinos

Who drives like shit?
Democrats/liberals. (thats why their ain’t no transgender NASCAR drivers)

Who Taxes you to death and then bitches when you complain about it?
Liberals/Democrats.

Without liberals this would almost be a perfect world.

Democrats created this inner city problem. They can’t admit their moronic ideas don’t work. So yeah, try and blame someone or something else.

But, but, but, He was a dindu nuthin who was trying to get his life together. So the liberal judge just gives the thug a light sentence, or probation, and he’s back on the street in record time. Meanwhile it’s all the fault of the law abiding citizen who happens to be able to Legally employ their rights given under the Bill of Rights these liberal assholes hate so much.

Same old song. Punish the law abiding for the actions of the criminals. Until these thugs are taught by responsible fathers, nothing will change. Just by the term Baby Daddy, it’s understood that there is NO responsibility on their part.

A better idea would be to let the legal gun owners shoot the criminals on sight. Gun violence would tick up for a few weeks, and then disappear completely.

And the uptick wouldn’t be a bad thing at all.
