No, YOU missed the point.
Look it up: NYC, 285 murders in 2017 in a population of 8.6 million with 1.8 million poor, majority minority.

I understand that YOUR point is that the only place in America of any relevence to the bogusly weighted narrative is Chicago, but the US is SLIGHTLY bigger.

FREE BONUS: NYC is not just safer than other big cities, but less populated areas that aren't even towns as well. According to the FBI, per capita, guess which is the most dangerous area in the USA.
HINT: It ain't tha ghetto.

It's St. Louis. But the key is to recognize what sociologists are coming to understand is "murder inequality." Any discussion of murder rates should focus not on cities, but on the few urban neighborhoods facing vastly disparate murder levels. My daughter and her husband live in Chicago. It's a great city. They love it. But travel a few city blocks, and rates of violence can fluctuate dramatically. In 2016, five police districts overseeing only 8% of Chicago’s population recorded around 32% of its murders. Two Chicago neighborhoods, Burnside and Fuller Park, counted a rate of more than 100 killings per 100,000 people. People living in them were 9 times more likely to be shot in their neighborhood than in some of the city’s safest areas. The same goes for almost any city you can name. Just like income, education and other social metrics, violent gun crime varies even more >>within<< American cities than between them.

The point is, gun control hasn't worked in cities or states where it's been tried.

Overall, we're safer than we were 20 years ago despite the number of guns doubling in the US.

Link? Everything I search has either St Louis, Detroit, or Baltimore at the top depending on what exactly is being measured.

No longer in my visible history, so here's a link to that Georgia meme convo:

My clipboard holds only 1 item at a time, so a lot of back n forth making sure I didn't fudge numbers, lot of time. For what? 0 response. Not even an upvote.
Sheesh.

No link. You'll just deflect by saying it's a MSM lie, so do your own homework.

Is your Google app in the shop?

NOT city.

Wow. I can give you links to prove MY contention but a simple request for you to back up a ridiculous claim and you get all pissy.

Oh and I used your little snot nosed suggestion and Google STILL doesn’t agree with you. So ... you’re wrong. I’m right. Prove otherwise.

Look it up then, NYC murder numbers, 2017, done.

Prove me wrong.

But you can't.

"Can't" -- LOL.
So a city with the strictest gun laws has a lower murder rate?
https://is.gd/CngeQs

But yet super strict gun laws can't seem to help Chicago and Baltimore.

Correlation =/= causation.

“To have a year like we had last year ... is nothing short of amazing,” said New York Police Department Commissioner James O’Neill in December.

He attributed the sharp declines to “precision” policing, which the NYPD has pioneered since the introduction of its CompStat system more than two decades ago. And along with aggressive anti-gang initiatives and a focus on getting guns off the streets, the commissioner said his department’s neighborhood policing initiatives have also strengthened ties with communities.

Conclusion: stronger police presence, not stronger gun laws. (It's called LOGIC)

I still don't look at links. And in this case, a walk out the door is all I need to do.

Why ask me below when you already know the answer?

Stronger police presence (and communiity involvement) to enforce stronger gun laws, there ya go, you got it!
Because logic IS a thing, not just rhetoric.

Disagreeing by agreeing with me is hardly effective. You've failed to prove NYC is not safer and, um, this is long past lame.

We're done.

You don't look at links, huh? Nice to see you're open to receiving information that doesn't match your predetermined narrative.

btw, this is just sidetracking the issue.

Yes, here in the Bronx I might have encountered this startling phenomenom of 'neighborhoods' on occasion. Hell, they have even bigger populations than what other states call cities. Cross a street, and you're in another part of the world. I can show you 2 blocks on Belmont Ave that's filled with Islamic Romas from Macedonia. Block over on Hughes? Ricans. Go down the street to 188th, Mexicans - all in the neighborhood still called the Little Italy of the Bronx (we call it Arthur Ave). A slum sqeezing with a hyper concentrated mix of some of the toughest mofos on the planet, recipe for an explosion, yet despite an uptick in violence this year, still safer than the the state of Georgia (look at my comment history for that discussion. That's an example of why I said do your homework, because while I did it for that OP, he just kept up with the cherry picking bs).

You may now try and refute NYC's record of relative safety in comparison to other cities and states and how gun control doesn't work here even though it does.

Why does gun control do nothing to stem the tide of murders in Chicago, Baltimore or ... London? Those cities, and London in particular, have very strong anti-gun laws on the books. If it works so well in NYC, what's different about Baltimore or Chicago or London?

Excellent point! It's been so effective in NYC, it's now not just safer than other big cities and even rural areas (see Georgia link above), it's even safer than London - or was, as the last 2 months saw a slight uptick here.

As for the eternal only city in America, Chicago, laws don't mean diddly without enforcement and other active measures to intercede and curtail violence before it begins, as has been done in NYC since the 1960s. Change the mentality, change the culture, change the crime rate.
No questions asked buyback programs have been effective in taking them off the street as well. You can't shoot people with a gun you no longer have.

Slack law enforcement due to budget cutbacks gave priority to only the most extreme crimes in London. What qualifies for the definition and tabulation of is also a factor in data there.
