Wow, that was excellent and very true. Well worth watching all the way through. He is right that we should be amazed that the press never mentions that the overall violent crime rate and murder rate are each half of what they were in 1992.

That is also the first time I have heard the observation that most of our violent crime is centered in 250,000+ population urban areas and we have 186 of them vs. 32 in the UK (yet they still have an overall violent crime rate much higher than ours).

Certain Minority crime rate is 9 times that of the white population I saw lately on youtube or elsewhere.

One thing he fails to mention which makes Great Britain even more violent is that they do not report crimes on their crime reports until there is a conviction. How many actual crimes occur where no suspect is tried?

We have a much higher prevalence of concealed carry holders today compared to the early 90's. This correlates just as I would expect with our drop in violent crime over the past 20 years.

The urban centers still remain high in violent crime because of the huge gun and carry restrictions. Why is the data so hard to interpret for some people? I guess they just choose to ignore what doesn't fit into their agenda.

The real issue with comparing the current murder rate in US to other countries is that the central debate is whether or not gun control has a desirable effect/change. It should be obvious then that we need to look at change in murder or violent crime rates over change in time. A single point us nothing. Lott was right, Piers Morgan doesn't understand basic math.

This is a sad fact. I don't think it's quite that high though. It's around 6-7 times higher if I remember correctly.
The murder rate among whites in the US is on par with the UK murder rate. San Francisco has over 800,000 people and is the 14th most populous city yet they don't suffer from the same high murder rate that most of the 250K+ cities have. Their murder rate is 6 per 100K (vs 5 for the entire US). They also are only 6.3% black. I'm not saying black people are the cause but there does seem to be a strong correlation. The cities with the highest murder rates are all mostly populated by black and/or hispanic. I haven't done the research to determine if this is an isolated factor or if perhaps whites with similar income level in similar populous cities also exhibit similar murder rates.
