32. just a few things

No, I'm suggesting that gangs will always have their guns and guns are not the real issue when it comes to gangs. You will never take guns away from the gangs. They will always have them.

FBI UCR. They use them only because they are more available. Submachine guns are the weapons of choice in UK and Europe for the same reason.

Outside of the urban cores in the US, "gun violence" is even more rare in the US. It is easier to get an illegal machine gun in the EU than it is to get any gun legally in some US states. Their rates were even lower before they passed any gun laws at all. Europe also doesn't have the drug and gang problems we do either.
