  •  Population growth alone CANNOT explain (0+ / 0-)

    Population growth alone CANNOT explain the increase in nonfatal and fatal gunshot injuries.

    A - Both fatal and non-fatal gunshot injuries have increased every year since 2001

    B - Niether fatal nor non-fatal bicycle injuries have increased over time beyond the number of injuries seen back in 2001.

    C - We expect that population growth will have the same effect on the number of bicycle riders as it does the number of gun users.

    We conclude: that population growth alone cannot explain the increase in gun injuries.

      I think population increase can definitely be counted as one reason why the total number of shootings has gone up. I think there are others as well and gave an example in that comment.
      Oh and can you explain the 'why' C to me?
