I've been listening to an excellent documentary on Harper High School in Chicago.
If you live around Harper, you are automatically in a gang. And they tell us a gang wouldn't be a gang without guns.
It's obvious from a distance that if guns were taken out of the equation, there would be no gangs and no shootings.
