Analysis of crime data might as well take place in a little black box where police reports go in and out comes "darkies are gang-raping white women" or "gun control laws cause school shootings."
Two can play at this game: police filed five times as much paperwork 10 years after the handgun ban because they didn't have shit to do what with people shooting each other less. Five is bigger than four. You do the math. Or don't, 'cuz you can't.
> Yes, "gun violence" includes suicide but NO, accidents are not recorded as violent crimes,
they are recorded, surprisingly, as accidents.
When police officers file reports, they do not get to check a little box on a form marked "bang bang angry shooty gun violence" or "oops, sorry, accidental firearm discharge." Distinguishing between the two often requires forensic investigation. Get it through
your thick skull that there are no such figures as "violent gun crime" or "handgun murder rate." You're inferring these phenomenon from
reports of incidents involving firearms where people are injured or killed
, a figure which certainly includes accidents, and even includes incidents of actual violence where the perpetrator--or even victim--was in possession of a firearm regardless of
whether or not it was implemented in the actual crime.
And of course, there is zero assurance that crime reports will be uniform over the course of a whole decade across an entire nation with several different legal systems. Real crime statistics are year-by-year and confined to much smaller areas.
