you insist the difference is explained by "demographics" as if that alone explains it
show us data which identifies what about the differences in demographics is responsible for that 2600+% differential in murder by gun rate
you can't do it
i called you on it
and now you whine because i point out that you are without an explanation to account for the difference
for extra credit offer up the difference in demographics which similarly explains the wide differences in homicide by gun rates with japan and canada
what about the variety of ethnicities in england; what about your demographics differences explains the 2600% delta in gun homicide rates
you can't. you won't
the thing that explains the difference in all instances is the availability of guns in the USA
the stats establish a reality you do not want to admit
Gun or no gun - he was still a horrible incident waiting to happen.
also - the system that identifies routine offenders and possibly gets them off the streets seems to not be existent in this case, either - several arrests but no rap sheet, obviously something's not going all the way around the circle.
