Culture, not Gun Ownership, Key Factor in Gun Homicides

The study used the propaganda metric "gun homicides".  I suspect that the correclation would have been even higher if they had simply looked at all unjustified homicides.   Still, it shows that culture is the determining factor.  Each new child is a wild animal that needs to be civilized.  Remove the civilizing influence of a father and it becomes much harder to civilize young men.  They then revert to the default position of culture, tribalism.  We call these modern tribes "gangs".

Using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Archive of Criminal Justice Data, Costello determined that the top three factors that correlate most strongly with gun homicides are growing up in a black community, not having a father present, and dropping out of high school – “the very factors that Bill Cosby has been discussing,” he pointed out.
