If America's gun violence problem is only at 4.9%


Doesn't that mean a gun violence problem happens 0.0049% a day?

4.9% of what?!?

Are guns used in 4.9% of violent crime? Have 4.9% of Americans been a victim of violent crime involving a gun? Are 4.9% of Americans incarcerated for commiting gun crimes?

I'm trying to wrap my head around why he divided 4.9% by 1000, and the significance thereof, in his mind.

there's probably about a 99% chance that this thread will likely go one of two ways.

Myself also

I'd also like to know what the 4.9% number even represents in the first place

The statement doesn't even make sense. "America's gun violence problem is only at 4.9%"

Of what? Compared to what? It's a useless statement without more information

I think that is what he is asking. I think 4.9% is the number of gun murders commited by an assault rifle.

Not sure why he decided to divide by 1000... but I'll be honest and say I did some wierd shite in engineering classes to give me a number close to what I knew it should be...
