Our Real Problem Is Cultural Decay, Not Guns

…Last year, Chicago had 512 homicides; Detroit had 411; Philadelphia had 331; and Baltimore had 215.

Those cities are joined by other dangerous cities—such as St. Louis, Memphis, Tenn., Flint, Mich., and Camden, N.J. — and they also lead the nation in shootings, assaults, rapes and robberies.

Both the populations of those cities and their crime victims are predominantly black. Each year, more than 7,000 blacks are murdered.

Close to 100% of the time, the murderer is another black person.
