Re: Jody David Armour

Jody Armour was quoted about the need to reduce gun violence overall, not just in mass shooting scenarios. “A lot of times, it is members of the Black community, truly disadvantaged Blacks, turning guns on one another and squeezing the trigger,” Armour said. “If you want to reduce that rate of violence, focus on the social inequalities.”
