    ...a significant root cause of Urban weapon violence is economic. Always has been.

    If we are going to underfund Urban schools, accept significantly higher unemployment in "the wrong neighborhoods", etc. we must expect that some "entrepreneurial energy" is going to roughly follow basic Econ101 and explore opportunities to "maximize income and profit with minimal barriers of entry". That is the underground economy, and with no official, legally enforceable system to "regulate commerce", the various players emulate both classic Gangsters and contemporary Banksters and forcefully assert their right to "regulate themselves."
