Just facts, including the fact that in 2018, 70% of shooting murders we committed by African Americans in some pretty specific neighborhoods, as compared to whites that committed 28% of the shooting murders sporadically over the city. No discernible pattern to be found. You can find this info at the interactive map below. I then pointed out that according to demographics, the city is 65% white vs 26% black. So why is the minority community committing more shooting murders than the majority community, by far? That's your problem to go after. Not the AR15 boogey man. I suggested that they looked at the poverty level of those neighborhoods and I bet they would find a connection.

    Anyway, that's just one of the data sets that I went through for them. The point of this post is that I received a reply for O'Conner's Chief of Staff stating that he would ensure that Mr. O'Conner reads my letter. I also opened myself up to be willing to meet with Mr. O'Conner as well.

    Here's to hoping he's interested in facts, but I have my doubts.
