The U.S. gun death rate last year hit its highest mark in nearly three decades, and the rate among women has been growing faster than that of men, according to study published Tuesday. The increase among women - most dramatically, in Black women - is playing a tragic and under-recognized role in a tally that skews overwhelmingly male, the researchers said.

I wonder if this correlates with the number of guns?

The increase among women -- most dramatically, in Black women -- is a feature, not a bug, Republicans said.

Dem run cities are where the majority of the gun deaths are happening.

"Dem run cities are where the majority of the gun deaths are happening."

Also where the vast majority of everything happens -- aside from illegals working on farms in Red counties.

2022 data

"Suicides account for the highest number of gun-related deaths by state in the United States of America. Most suicides are done with firearms of some type that were also the registered and licensed owners of the weapons. Research has uncovered a correlation between people in states with lower population densities and a higher likelihood of suicides. The thought behind this finding is that lower population densities mean lower rates of loneliness, isolation, and lack of purpose.

On this note, the states with the highest suicide rates are Montana, Alaska, and Wyoming and various smaller cities in midwestern states of America. On the other end of the spectrum, states with large population sizes and even larger population density values, such as New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, have the lowest suicide rates in the United States."

Why is it that since the earliest arrival of Europeans in the New World, the land that is now the USA has always been #1 in the world when it comes to killing?

You can't discuss anything with Republicans anymore
that doesn't already agree with what they believe.

I know, I've tried.

They only believe, what they want to believe,
even when facts and data, suggest otherwise.

We are solving this country's mental health crisis, one gun buying patient at a time. And in some cases, these patients are helping cure others around them or in the community...

And if only they could get Trumpy back into the Oval Office again there will be no more need for elections and they would force you and I to believe what they believe too.
