Not sure how New York got on that list, but according to this site , These are New York City's numbers:


The city's press release was full of bragging:

With the decrease in murder, New York’s murder rate has fallen to 3.8 homicides per 100,000 residents. New York City has a far lower murder rate than other major American cities. For example:

· If New York City had the same murder rate as Washington DC, New York City would have a total of 1,100 murdered this year.
· If New York City had Chicago’s murder rate, New York City would have a total of more than 1,400 murders this year.
· If New York City had Philadelphia’s murder rate, New York City would have a total of more than 1,700 murders this year.
· If New York City had Baltimore’s murder rate, New York City would have a total of more than 2,870 murders this year.
· If New York City had Detroit’s murder rate, New York City would have a total of nearly 4,400 murders this year.
While NYC is definitely much safer now than in the past (2,245 murders in 1990!) and does better than other major U.S. cities, the NYC murder rate lags behind other countries like France and Japan.

More stats: "Guns remained the leading cause of murder in New York City again this year. Of the 414 homicides so far this year, 237 were by firearms. This is 61 fewer gun related murders than last year, a decrease of 20 percent. In 2001, there were 371 gun related murders, 36 percent more than this year."

Notice the immediate rise in mid 60’s, about the time of the rabid hippie movements and racial equality. ???

Reports get a little shakey for me when something is made out of the most of anything happening
in the largest of cities.  Most murders took place in our biggest cities.  Go figure...

In other reports based on per 100,000, these cities drop way down or off the chart.

I think the driver there was not so much these movements, but the Great Society programs, whose immediate effect was to drive family conditions in the direction that would create what has taken place.

And the rise of more restrictive gun laws in the aftermath of the Kennedys’ and MLK assassinations.

Guns don't cause murders. Murderous use of guns cause murders.

That list looks suspiciously like the list of financially failing cities recently posted here.

Hmmmmm....

Any statistic that looks at “gun murders” instead of total murders is misleading, essentially propaganda.

Only total murders count. If you reduce “gun murders” but total murders go up, you have done harm, not good.

Consider “Hospital Deaths”. You can eliminate all “hospital deaths” by eliminating hospitals, but the total number of deaths will rise considerably.

I wonder how N.O. got to that position when Katrina was supposed to wash the ghetto animals to the nearby states.
