Numerous media reports tied to the topic of White Supremacist.

Does that surprise anyone, given the high emphasis on racism over the past few months? It's a natural outcome, given just the nature if the continual hateful rants toward African Americans very prevalent through the anonymous social media during the past few months.

A sad state of affairs -- who is putting guns into the hands of these children?
"Among juveniles (minors under the age of 16, 17, or 18, depending on legal jurisdiction) serving in correctional facilities, 86% had owned a gun, with 66% acquiring their first gun by age 14.[2] There was also a tendency for juvenile offenders to have owned several firearms, with 65% owning three or more.[2] Juveniles most often acquired guns illegally from family, friends, drug dealers, and street contacts.[2] Inner-city youths cited "self-protection from enemies" as the top reason for carrying a gun.[2] In Rochester, New York, 22% of young males have carried a firearm illegally, most for only a short time.[107] There is little overlap between legal gun ownership and illegal gun carrying among youths.[107]"

The statistics you quote are for illegal carry in NY Drug gangs and scumbags. You cannot legally carry a handgun in NY if you are under 21.

Rochester. NY is a prime example of a black inner city crime in NY State .
Possessing/Carrying an unregistered handgun in NY is punishable by a 1 yr period of incarceration under the Sullivan act. Only 2 people have been charged under that act to best of my recollection. One was Bernard Goetz .

Laws are in place to combat illegal guns. Authorities do not charge minors accordingly
Lax, liberal charging and sentencing recommendations for juveniles will not stop the avalanche of weapons criminal gangs routinely carry

Youth Homicide Rates by Race in the U.S.

The George Zimmerman trial has refocused the national dialogue on race relations in America. Last week, President Barack Obama weighed in, saying, "African American young men are disproportionately involved in the criminal justice system... they’re disproportionately both victims and perpetrators of violence." Is he correct?

Yes. A new study released by the CDC provides data on homicide rates among American youth (aged 10-24) by race/ethnicity.(See graph.)

Before analyzing this graph, it is worth noting that homicide disproportionately affects American youths. Murder is usually a top 3 leading cause of death in youths, but it is not in the top 10 for the American population as a whole. Specifically, the youth homicide rate in 2010 was 7.5 per 100,000, while the homicide rate for the entire population was 5.3 per 100,000.

There is also a huge disparity in the youth homicide rate (per 100,000) between races in 2010:

Blacks: 28.8
Hispanics: 7.9
Whites: 2.1

Thus, the homicide rate among black youths is nearly 400% higher than the overall youth homicide rate; the homicide rate among Hispanic youths is similar to the overall youth homicide rate; and the homicide rate among white youths is 72% lower than the overall youth homicide rate. Indeed, this indicates that homicide disproportionately affects black youths.

Additionally, in August 2012, the Wall Street Journal reported:

Homicide victims usually are killed by people of their own race and ethnicity. The pattern goes back at least a generation.

Bureau of Justice Statistics data show that from 1976 to 2005, white victims were killed by white defendants 86% of the time and black victims were killed by blacks 94% of the time.

So President Obama was completely correct in indicating that violent crime is a particular problem among black youths in America.

Tens of thousands try to illegally buy guns from dealers annually, study finds
By Bill Briggs
NBC News contributor

Attempted illegal gun purchases occur 30,000 to 40,000 times each year among U.S. firearms retailers, according to a first-of-its-kind survey of gun sellers published Monday.

Would-be patrons seek to sway sellers to keep transactions off the books or, more commonly, use stand-ins — often girlfriends or wives — to fill out required legal forms and undergo federal criminal background checks necessary to purchase firearms, according to the survey by the Violence Prevention Research Program at the University of California-Davis.

<snip>

Still, Molchan acknowledged that "straw-man buying for people is a problem. There are two big sources for criminal guns — No. 1 is theft from private homes and the other is straw-man purchases: they buy a gun for somebody who is a felon and they sell it to the other person for a mark up. It’s been a problem for a long time.”
For that reason, he said, members of the firearm dealers association all receive forms that they fill out during each sale — and ask the buyers to sign — attesting that the weapon is solely for that buyer and will not be re-sold in a secondary market to a felon or any other person who is restricted by state law from owning a gun. The forms have been in use for about 30 years.

“Our association is not against increased laws and increased penalties for people who are buying guns for people who are felons or shouldn’t have guns,” Molchan said.“We don’t have any objections to that."

********

As an outsider, it seems rather obvious the US lax gun control purchase and storage laws mainly benefit the criminal element. Then the radical element led by national gun organizations screech at any mentioning of tightening gun laws. One could wonder what they're are looking to protect. Because of liberal laws in the past, guns proliferate, people say they need guns to protect themselves.....it sounds like a case of which came first, the chicken or the egg? Lax laws, more guns in the hands of organized crime. How does that make America safer, especially when statistics show guns are a leading cause of death for young people?

If you stand back and take a look at the case with a broad view, that a teenager in Florida can't go to a store to buy ice- tea and skittles on a rainy night without looking 'suspicious' makes a rather pathetic statement of the world today.

It fits right along with children not being safe outdoors anywhere outside unless in the presence of an adult in some sort of structured activity and therefore they occupy their spare sitting locked in their houses communicating with 100s or 1000s of Facebook 'friends' they've never met or playing virtual online war games.

‘Anonymous’ still harassing GuZoo

Published: July 28, 2013 7:16 PM

Anonymous, the group of online hacker activists, have continued their campaign against the Three Hills area GuZoo.

Both the zoo’s website and email accounts of staff were hacked recently, as well as a banner hung at a Telus Tower near GuZoo saying “shut down the GuZoo.”

A Twitter account claiming to represent Anonymous posted the files on the internet Friday.

An anonymous caller to the Advocate sent pictures Friday of people wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, the mask closely associated with Anonymous.

These same pictures were posted to, and widely circulated through, twitter.

Both police and Telus are conducting investigations into the website and email hacking and the vandalism to the zoo.

GuZoo has come under fire recently from animal activists and Anonymous after a video was posted in July showing a behind-the-scenes look at the zoo, allegedly taken at GuZoo over the Canada Day long weekend.

Then on July 22 a group of protestors gathered on the steps of the Alberta Legislature with similar signs to the one Anonymous put on the Telus Tower Friday.

Staff at GuZoo didn’t want to talk about the latest Anonymous attacks.

Earlier in May of this year, fences at the roadside zoo were cut in numerous different places allowing some animals to escape and others to wander into the pens of other animals.

Also targetting GuZoo is the Edmonton based Council of Concerned Albertans for Animal Welfare and Public Safety. They have an extensive campaign on their website aiming to close the zoo, including pictures and video they say was taken at the zoo.

This makes no sense....sabatoge is always suspected when risk control mechanisms do not function as intended.

"Fire Chief Richard Keith said possible causes of the explosion may be either equipment malfunction or possibly human error. Sabotage was not suspected.

Officials said hoses designed to spray water on the large tanks in case of fire, didn't go off as planned."
