there was some more I wanted to add to this - on the advent of the machine gun, prohibition and its relation to violent crime - but thought it was getting too long - so I will add an addendum page to this one sometime this week with that.

also - this is such a serious topic I welcome anyone with ideas on how to make this page better, more strident, or harder hitting.

thank you.

Nice work, so thorough. So it is one to read a bit and come back time to time to digest it all.

The bits about the narrowing of statistics on those with prior gun assaults is going to be watched to see if it does bring about some better policing and then how the judges and prosecutors treat it and what that does to all the politics. Drugs and guns have so much baggage attached, it will be hard to allow new facts to have some impact.

Again, my comment is only based on what I’ve read so far.
