We always talked about gun violence, especially in our community, she added. And as much as we talk about black power and unity, but its like were killing each other and there is no one to step forward and say, This is it. It just has to end one way or another.
I just think they should ban guns, she said. There is too much opportunity and how do poor people get guns? It comes from somewhere and I think they need to find a better way of handling it.

"Gun violence" and "ban guns." Sad the mother lost her child to inner city violence but banning guns is not the solution to the problem. Places like China would flood the market with weapons and then guess what...
Yes.. ban guns... It has worked so well in the past!
Do I really a sarcasm tag?
What is it about “Gun Violence” that makes it so much worse than “Violence”.
If you’re dead your dead.
Its amazing how the left changes words and phrases to suit their needs. It’s amazing how our side rarely calls them out on this.
gun violence has shattered my heart
It breaks your heart to bury a child, regardless of the cause of death.
If a person would commit murderer then why wouldn’t he just get an illegal gun or some other weapon.
Why can’t these women see this?
My neighborhood has almost zero policing and everybody has guns, but zero gun violence.
We must have different guns than the inner cities.
My, my. Such a mystery. But I guess if we ban guns, the poor will have no chance to steal any. /s
Had the boy been stabbed to death...or...bashed with a baseball bat...or...whatever..
it would not have shattered anybody's life
Don’t call it gun violence. Call it a violent human who has no principles and who kills people. Look for the root cause: liberals destroying the family, basic values, and deliberately keeping blacks from getting jobs and making them dependent on government.
BLACK LIVES MATTER - Only when ended by a Cop. Otherwise....meh.
I always find it strange that people put such value on familiar surroundings, friends, family, etc that they will continue to live in fear of violence and murder rather than move.
I grew up in a somewhat nomadic family, so the thought of moving is not scary to me. Lots of people are petrified of pulling up stakes and moving, probably because the family hasn’t done it in generations. But if I were trapped in a violent urban hellhole, I’d sure get out for greener pastures.
Of course, these people have been fed lies about police brutality so much that they probably fear they’ll be gunned down by the police in their new location.
Isn't it time we did something about guns shooting people? Maybe if we sent all guns to safety training classes?
Banning THUG culture will save more black lives than baning guns or defunding police.
Change my mind
Facts that I bring to the table:
Blacks are the perpetrator in 54% of all US homicides
Blacks represent 13% of the US population
Black Males are roughly 6% of the US population
Black perpetrators kill other blacks 88% of the time (2600 out of 2925)
Police killed 229 Blacks during the same time frame - 7.8%.
My conclusion: Black males kill other blacks at a rate 10 times higher than police kill blacks.
If you want black lives to matter, best start with reducing the number of blacks who are killing other blacks.
I made a statement a couple of days ago: my guess is 85-90% of violent crime in this country is done by someone who generally votes for democrat or was raised to have democrat beliefs.
Guess what? If they ban guns, they aren’t going to go into the hood and take them.
Banning guns is all about taking guns away from law-abiding people.
My son was BEAT TO DEATH WITH A 2 FT 4 X 4, so some SOCIOPATH COULD GET HIS JOLLIES TO SEE WHAT IT’S LIKE TO KILL. So how do you blame guns.
My BFF had her 8 yr old daughter RAPED/KILLED. DNA PROOF, 2 TRIALS, both ended with Death Row, that was in 1990. COVID has it hung up, no Fed courts to drag it out another 10+ years.
NOT one of them involved a gun. I CCW as we ended up with a Plea Deal, M1 down to M2, 20 yrs, 6 parole hearings later 10.5 yrs he’s set Free due to prison overcrowding.
No Justice for Either of us.
Sickening experiences. I send my most heartfelt condolences your way.
Banning guns is NOT the cure.... it’s banning criminal animals!!
“Banning guns” will work as well in the hood as “banning narcotics” has.
If you don’t want guns to be around, you are in the wrong country. I’ll gladly chip in to buy you a bus ticket to Canada.
