After 400 years of enforced racism, resulting in poverty and unimaginable acts of violence such as Greenwood in Tulsa 100 years, it is not surprising that level of crime in poor black and ethnic neighborhoods is high.

And the attempt to pass laws that restrict minorities from voting will only make crime worse.
The interconnection of these factors is obvious and constantly misrepresented in GOP statements about fraud! Watch the leader of the GOP continue his election fraud claim in days ahead.
And the fraudster in chief and his accomplices show no remorse or plans to reverse their anti-democratic behavior.
Why? Because they are petrified at the obvious trend against their racism which was made more obvious by the George Floyd murder conviction, which miraculously got filmed!
Should the GOP takeover either chamber of our fragile representative government in 2022 there is no telling what these terrified adherents to racism might try to enact to allow this 400 year span of racism to expand!
Gun legislation can’t occur until justice is restored. The right to bear arms provision in our founding documents assumed the British might try as they did in the War of 1812 to take back US control. They ain’t coming back, Folks.
39 percent of American households own guns. That is up from 32 percent in 2016.https://t.co/TORH87ICkm

Gun sales since the pandemic are up so that the number of guns now owned exceeds our 340 million population.
Bottom line: Only when white fear is quelled with appropriate white behavior will sensible gun legislation be possible.
