No 2nd hand guesses DRUG related . Didn't see a thing what a neighborhood to be living in?

Call Cuomo maybe he can help get these weapons off the street
starting with the #1 "the gangsters then the guns and knives.
Knives don't make to much of a report when they are used
sort of like silent death. Any one ever do a study on how many knives are used during a crime? Might be interesting?

Not my findings just posted what I searched up on.

about a quarter of all assaults, and
roughly a twelfth of all rapes/sexual
assaults involved an armed assailant.
About 90% of homicide victims were
killed with a weapon.
$ Firearm violence rates for blacks
age 12 or older (8.4 per 1,000 blacks)
were C
40% higher than rates
for Hispanics (6.0)
200% higher than rates
for whites (2.8 per 1,000).
$ Blacks were about 9 times more
likely than whites to be murdered
with a firearm.
$ On average black victims of firearm
violence were 3 years younger than
white victims C 29 versus 32.
$ From 1993 through 2001 blacks
accounted for 49% of homicide
victims and 54% of victims of firearm
homicide but 12% of the U.S.
$ The likelihood of an injury was the
same for victims facing armed and
unarmed offenders (26%); serious
injury was more likely from armed
offenders (7% versus 2%).
$ From 1993 through 2001 the
number of murders declined 36%
while the number of murders by
firearms dropped 41%.
$ From 1994 through 1999, the
years for which data are available,
about 7 in 10 murders at school
involved some type of firearm, and
approximately 1 in 2 murders at
school involved a handgun.
