you're right, there are a few other countries that have extremely high levels of gang violence and where everybody is armed. We're in great company with el salvador, Mexico, and Brazil

oh and btw, most of the guns in those countries were bought legally here. Not only are we killing ourselves in huge numbers, we're exporting the problem

we actually are one of the only countries with a very large minority population kept in perpetual under-class status by systemic racism, which inevitably leads to high gang violence

Underclass minority groups form gangs in almost every country on the planet.

So we either stop being racists and make sure everyone gets a fair shot at life, lock up all the criminals, or preferably BOTH.

This is our circumstances, we need to deal with it and stop making excuses.
