How might different people come to different conclusions about the actual numbers of murders, shooting incidents, and overall violence in Chicago? How might you reconcile these differences as a part of the criminal justice system? Reference: Charles, S. (2018, December 30). Chicago’s 2018 murder total falls for second straight year but still tops 530. Chicago Sun Times. Retrieved fromhttps://chicago.suntimes.com/2018/12/30/18314619/chicago-s-2018-murder-total-falls-for-second-straight-year-but-still-tops-530 Gun laws are controversial for many reasons. Statistics have been used repeatedly by both gun-rights proponents and those who wish to see stronger gun laws enacted. This is referred to as a “stats war” by Best. One statistic that we often see is that there are over 300 million guns in the United States, for the highest per capita rate of gun possession in the world. Gun rights advocates might say that this high number is a reason that the crime rate in the U.S. has been falling—more guns equals more deterrence. Gun opponents might blame the number of guns available for the fact that guns are more often used in homicides and suicides than any other weapon. Yet we see a big scary number and we know to think critically. Where does this number come from? Why might it be misleading? What do we really need to know to understand the relationship between guns and violence?
