Gunz R BAD in Durham!!!
Via the ever helpful folks at NCGV (snort) I found this blog post by Leanora Minai where she explains that 81% of all homicide in Durham was carried out with a gun.
I’ve compiled a year-in-review snapshot, which I offer to raise awareness with the hope that it will spark meaningful conversations (even just one) about what can be done to address and mitigate gun violence. With 27 people killed, hundreds of friends and family members are forever changed by the loss.
She never comes out and says what she thinks can be done about “Gun Violence™,” but I think you can guess.
I’ve left her a comment asking her for the most important data, the data she left out. What percentage of the victims and killers were prior criminals?
My guess is that, much like others fixated on “Gun Deaths,” she doesn’t care about the criminals as much as she cares about the guns.
