According to an article published in the US Today, more than a third of gun homicide victims in the US were young black men and teenagers in 2019. These findings were revealed in a review of gun mortality data. CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) released these reports regarding gun violence in 2019.
This report was released Tuesday and was dubbed “A looming public health crisis.” Black men and boys were in the 15 to 34 age group. which is only 2 percent population of the United States. And 37 percent of them were homicides with firearms in 2019. This percentage is about twenty times higher than white males of the related age.
More than half of firearm homicide victims were black men in 2019, all reporting firearm homicides. According to an investigation by the Educational Fund to Stop Gun Violence and the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, the proportion of black male sufferers was 63 percent.
When we compare the proportion with white people, it becomes more marked in all age groups. Black men were passing likely to die in a gun assassination than white fellows. Which is about 14 times more than white men. And even if we add women, they are eight times more likely to die in homicide with a firearm than the general public.
Not only black guys and teens, black ladies and girls are also a great danger. Like black men, black women had the highest death rate during firearm homicides than women of any other ethnicity and race. They are a four times higher likelihood to be hunted than other women.
Florida A&M University epidemiologist ED Clark said gun violence is the longest public health issue in the black community, which is not good for the country. We need holistic access to overcoming gun mortality and damages, according to the gun violence expert.
We should consider gun violence as a public health problem and we should include it for review. For the best public health and well-being of our population. We must find the solutions for how we can reduce this disease and assume the burden or threat of the population. He also added that gun violence is a very important emitter that you must look deeply through the lens.
According to subsequent reports to black men and women, American Indians and Alaska Natives are at high risk. Followed by Hispanics and Latinos.
Later black men and ladies, American Indians and Alaska Natives were the next biggest risk group, according to the investigation, followed by Latinos and Hispanics.
According to a study, in 2019, the majority of 19-year-old children and adolescents were killed by firearms. In his age group, black male deaths were 1 in 10, which is the highest number in two decades.
There is much proof showing that gun deaths grew dramatically last year through the coronavirus pandemic dramatically. But the government is not considering this main problem, according to the researchers what they argued is the lack of timely data.
The author also wrote that the data suggests that suicides in black people also increased compared to other races and ethnicities. According to one study, most of the deaths were from firearms. In these deaths, men were 73 percent. While white men were double as likely to die from self-destruction using firearms.
Nearly sixty percent of deaths in 2019 were self-slaughter by the use of guns. A total of 39,707 people died from gun destruction in 2019.
The most dependable type of weapon data currently available is that of gun deaths despite flaws. But we can say that these firearm deaths may only be the tip of the iceberg. Many other people were shot, wounded, and survived, some of the people were shot but not hit. Some are witnesses to gun violence. Many others experience it in other ways. Some of the people living in affected communities have left their loved ones at the hands of gun violence. While some were threatened with a weapon.
