FiveThirtyEight asks if the recent surge in violent crime was related to the uptick in guns sold last year

FiveThirtyEight is here to tell us what new data on gun recoveries can tell us about increased violence in 2020. The article “is a collaboration between FiveThirtyEight and The Trace, a nonprofit newsroom reporting on gun violence.”


“As the pandemic progressed, and gun sales continued to climb alongside shootings, researchers have puzzled over the connection between these two intersecting trends,” writes Champe Barton. The gist of the piece is, ATF data shows that in 2020, “police recovered almost twice as many guns with a short ‘time-to-crime’ — in this case, guns recovered within a year of their purchase” than in 2019.

What else was happening in 2020 besides the pandemic?




As someone said above, nice try.
