commented on Scared of Guns? Buy More Guns!
Let me fix this for you:
Some people hear about people behaving badly with guns and so they move to restrict access to guns. Other people buy more guns out of fear that they may no longer be able to buy guns soon, which begets more people behaving badly with guns. I find it hard to imagine an ending to this particular merry-go-round.

At the risk of drawing attention to obvious, but politically incorrect, factors:
Black Culture = Homophobia = Down Low = Lack of HIV testing = Lack of HIV status awareness = Lack of HIV treatment = High viral loads = High transmission rates.
I'm prepared to be yelled down for not acknowledging economic hardship as a factor in getting treatment, but fact is NYC, which is used as an outlier example, also has generous programs making HIV treatment readily available for the economically disadvantaged.
