I certainly would not want to disparage the tremendous work that went into this report, but we could have told them this. Am I right?
Top 10 least peaceful states:
8. South Carolina
What's your opinion? Is "least peaceful" more-or-less the same as "most likely to get shot?"
It seems to me that guns play a major role in every one of those criteria.The index is based on five primary indicators: (1) number of homicides per 100,000 people, (2) number of violent crimes per 100,000 people, (3) number of people in jail per 100,000 people, (4) number of police ofﬁcers per 100,000 people and (5) general availability of small arms.
What do you think? Please leave a comment.
