Add one more significant fact to this data and it puts the U.S.'s problem in a sharper context. in any year between 75%-80% of gun deaths are committed by African Americans, 11%-18% by Hispanics and about 6%-8% by whites. The problem in this country is gangs and not guns. The police in every city that has gangs know who every gang member is, know where they live and hang out and know with some certainty which crimes are committed by which gangs. The reasons we don't do something is that: A)the entire process around bring gang members to justice is quite dangerous so more effort is put into traffic convictions which bring money into the system. B) The legal system will crucify you if you are even just accused of child abuse or domestic violence (not guilty but merely accused) but if you are a gang member selling drugs or shooting competitors the DA won't touch the case without a mountain of evidence. So the police don't want to arrest them and the DA doesn't want to convict them so we have given over the cities to gangs who shoot guilty and innocent alike with impunity.
