An incredible study was just released by The Gang Reduction Strategy Steering Committee of Durham, North Carolina. Titled “FELONS WITH FIREARMS IN DURHAM, NC,” this report helps educate those on who is committing gun crime in the 48 percent white and 40 percent black:
This report provides a summary of data surrounding the criminal charge of “Possession of a Firearm by a Felon” in Durham, North Carolina from the years 2016 to 2018. The citizens and community leaders of Durham want to lower the rate of violent crime. Of concern are violent crimes that involve the use of a firearm. This report notes that many violent crimes where a firearm was used are committed by convicted felons, who by statute are forbidden from having a firearm in their possession. Goals for this report include presenting extensive data and analysis on possession of firearms by felons and then offering recommendations to reduce these occurrences.
There’s one key data takeaway to discuss, because the rest of the report is an attempt to bury just who/who is committing the gun crime:
95 percent of those felons arrested for carrying a gun in the city of Durham between 2016-2018 (out of 330 people) were black.
Recall: Durham is 48 percent white and 40 percent black.
Just as in Norfolk, Virginia, the color of gun crime is overwhelmingly black.
These are the true data points the NRA and proponents of the 2nd Amendment MUST be promulgating on a daily basis, instead of hyping the few blacks who support the right to bear arms.
