TODAY, there was a VERY INTERESTING ARTICLE on Zero Hedge citing a shocking statistic that 51% of US murders are committed in 2% of US counties. Here's the "murder map" from the article. RED/PINK is where the homicides are; WHITE is considered "safe":
As I was looking at the map, it looked somehow FAMILIAR! Take a look at the 2016 US election map, also by COUNTIES! BLUE is democrat, RED is Republican.
Looking at these maps, I can't help but ask the question: why is it that people who live in areas that have high crime also vote for DEMOCRATS? File this under "Things that Make You Go Hmmm".
Special note: a GREAT site to bookmark on issues of guns, gun control and crime is John Lott's blog.
