The Trouble with Crime Statistics
Criminologists may disagree on questions of causality, but they agree that outsiders underestimate the complexity of criminology. “Everyone thinks they know what causes crime,” Sampson told me. Lauritsen concurred: “Everybody has a strong view that some factor is responsible, whether it’s video games, bad music, or sexist attitudes,” she said. Kleiman complained about the “very primitive models people have in their heads” when it comes to crime: “Most of those models imply that more severity of punishment is better, which is almost certainly false.” He went on, “Anyone who hasn’t studied this professionally has more confidence than they ought to have. You have to really look at it hard to see how confusing it is.”

Criminologists face a problem that’s common in many fields: overdetermination. Why does someone commit a crime? Was it peer pressure, poverty, a broken family, broken windows, bad genes, bad parenting, under-policing, leaded gasoline, Judas Priest? “You could just keep stepping back and back and back and back, and you wonder when, ultimately, you’re going to draw a line,” Lauritsen told me. “It could be drawn at probably thousands of points.” Criminologists aren’t the only researchers who study overdetermined subjects: biologists, who have long sought specific genes for diseases, have come to realize that many traits and illnesses may be “omnigenic”—determined by countless genes. The sociologist David Matza summed up the difficulty, in 1964: “When factors become too numerous, we are in the hopeless position of arguing that everything matters.”

As long as these bastards are giving these other bastards millions of dollars a year then nothing will change in this fine land we call America. Sadly. No excuses...Vote all these folks out that took the gun people's money for they each and everyone have blood on their hands that can never be washed away.

Ultimately I did not hurt or kill anybody.  Not sure that qualifies me.

Funny.  Globe-trotters  — young and old — from all over the world understood the strategy.  Only Americans would express absolute shock that I did not carry a gun......

The really brave Americans and Canadians are the ones that will cross busy intersections while texting or deeply absorbed in conversation....

 
Indeed. Here in Texas, Ford F-150's should have special permits...

...This is the before and after point. Maybe that is the reason for why the mid through the end of the 70's was so happy crazy. It was over, we could all relax at last and try and just get back to living and not worry about having to be drafted and all that goes with it. Family life changed, too. The point being that having to come to a conviction about how you are going to view the sanctity of life at a predetermined time is no longer forced. That is a big deal. Butterfly effect big. Those that had to think about guns in their future with no opt out and those since where it is an opt in. ?

Eh ? Does this make any sense ? Is it relevant to what you were asking ?
 




Thus I can't shake the feeling that some that missed it by the hair on their chin (pun intended) now tend to romanticize and glorify guns and gun culture. Remember Eric Cantwell in Charlottesville for the White Supremacist march? Before the march he filmed himself with his suitcase arsenal complete with tough guy rhetoric. But after the march, when a young woman lost her life and the city realized the danger and sought the marchers, we find videos of him locked in his hotel room, terrified and sobbing that the police were downstairs waiting for him. How quickly his demeanor turned when the stakes got very serious and very real. That what leads me to think too many are 'caught up' in the hegemony and disassociated from the reality.
