    There was a recent FBI study showing that 70% of gun crimes took place in 3% of counties. I've searched, but can't find it. Does anyone have a clue where this might be?

    Sounds like info pulled from FBI stats. Might not be able to find a report that just says it plain as day.

    There was one. It was posted on OCDO and linked from a newspaper article. I just can't find it.

    counties... not countries.



    Basically is said that 70% of all gun crime took place in 3% of the counties in the US, and that 80% of gun crime was related to gangs. I think that's what it said

    The best and closest analysis of county level data is John Lott in More Guns, Less Crime.

    I sent the question to my daughter...she works for the FBI's Criminal Division. I'll let you know what she says.

    If I had to take a guess at which counties, I say those in the Chicago, LA, Miami, NYC areas would be at the top of the list.

    I would venture to guess, let's see what I did when the FBI stats are found....

    1). Cook County, Illinois.

    2). Washington D.C.

    3). Camden county New Jersey.

    4). Whatever county Newark New Jersey is in.

    5). St. Louis county, Missouri.

    6). Dade County, Florida (miami)

    7). Los Angeles County.

    8). Clark County, Nevada (Las Vegas - Henderson)
