is that what they  call gentrification?

Uh, I've been assured that only good guys with guns stop bad guys with guns, therefore everyone who died as a result of gun violence deserved it and more guns are the only answer.

Apparently, getting into a fight in Jackson Mississippi on a Saturday night is not the last thing that people want to do anymore.

If you get shot you are by default the bad guy

Seeing how the city is about 80% AA, I am pretty sure it isn't whitey that is doing the shooting.

I passed through last year, saw some of the sights downtown.  Like this one two blocks from the state capitol.

Yeah, what if you got married in a fever hotter than a pepper sprout?  Should you go to Jackson then?

I've ridden a bicycle there & back from Nashville. Can confirm, it sucks. Very much an "I rode all this way for THIS?!?" experience.

And Albuquerque.  It's almost as if the actual murder cities are impoverished cities in red states, not bogeyman cities in blue states.

It cannot POSSIBLY be the loose gun laws and open carry making guns available to angry people; no, it's only poverty and racial tension.

Just because they're in AA doesn't mean they can blame the liquor.

"I shot that guy sitting in his car 43 times because I don't trust the police".

That argument isn't too far off from what the Waukesha parade murderer claimed. Notice how quickly that was swept under the rug?

Chicago has more than 10 times the murders than Albuquerque does, but Chicago does not have 10 times the population.

The majority of gunshot victims in all cases are close friends & family, just in case you get distracted by the Concerned Race Realists in the thread.

It's crazy that even without guns, the homicide rate due to guns is just as high in other countries.

Fun fact about Switzerland. Everyone who buys a gun must pass a background check. The gun ownership rate is between 25 and 40 guns per 100 people. In order to have a semi automatic rifle with a high capacity magazine, you must be part of a gun club for at least five years. All guns purchased since 2008 must be registered. That's with the briefest cursory reading. There's a lot more but I've gotten bored with that stupid argument.

There are Karens to obsess about, don't got time for no parade murders.

In the state's most populous city, a former Confederate stronghold that would later give way to thriving Black business districts and serve as a hub for the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s,


that explains it

True, true.  Admitting you have a problem means you're obligated to take responsibility and correct your actions!

So are you saying that shootings don't count if it's friends and family?  Does that apply to other violent crimes as well?

No. I guess I'll need the crayons:
"But it's black people shooting black people" is a distraction from real race problems. It's also a moot point since most guns get used on family instead of Bad Guys.

Shakin_Haitian: It's crazy that even without guns, the homicide rate due to guns is just as high in other countries.


What are you talking about? Countries with strict gun control have a significantly lower rate of gun related deaths than the US. The countries with a higher rate are mostly Central and South American countries with poor gun control.
