According to NBC news, not generally considered to be a bastion of conservatism, in 2007 nearly half of the U.S. murder victims were black, a majority of them were black males aged 17-19, and 93 percent of black murder victims were killed by other blacks.

Blacks made up about 13% of the U.S. population at the time.

Now, to be honest, I don't know how many of those murders were committed with firearms, but I suspect most of them were.

So, yes, the OP has a point, no matter how much the PC folks among us do not like it.
