GUNS LEAD TO GUN VIOLENCE
''Results. Gun ownership was a significant predictor of firearm homicide rates (incidence rate ratio = 1.009; 95% confidence interval = 1.004, 1.014). This model indicated that for each percentage point increase in gun ownership, the firearm homicide rate increased by 0.9%.''
In 2011 there were 11, 101 people that died because of gun violence in the US. However, during the same period only 17 died from acts of terrorism. The Casual Loop Diagram tries to illustrate the process and dynamic that could be behind this unacceptably high number of victims. Is there not a moral dimension to this horrific number of victims that demands immediate action to disrupt this vicious reinforcing circle?
