  •  Murders in the US are very heavily concentrated (4+ / 0-)

    in a limited number of communities in the US, but this is being ignored in the current gun debate.

    Part of the Federal initiatives should be to specifically focus on the 25 - 50 neighborhoods in the country with the highest murder rates to bring these rates down to today's national average.  Some experimentation may be needed to do this.  Learn from the experience of New York City that dramatically reduced murder rates.  Why is Chicago doing so much worse than New York City in murder rates --  15.9 murders/100,000 residents vs 6.3 in NYC.  These measures are likely to dramatically improve the quality of life in many other ways in thiese troubled neighborhoods.

    The most important way to protect the environment is not to have more than one child.
