Guns do kill people

Especially black people.

The Guardian analyzed over 1,000 killings by U.S. police forces last year. We should not be surprised to learn that young black males are far more likely to be shot and killed by police than their white counterparts.

Young black men were nine times more likely than other Americans to be killed by police officers in 2015, according to the findings of a Guardian study that recorded a final tally of 1,134 deaths at the hands of law enforcement officers this year.

Me thinks that racism plays a big part. We can forget all that nonsense about a post-racial society.
