“I went to college in Boston. I was attacked by two people. One of them put his gun into the back of my head etc. It may happen to everyone.

Actually it is not true. The perception that everyone is equally at risk is flat-out wrong. Let’s take Boston as an example.

For almost 30 years between January 1, 1980 and December 31, 2008 the vast majority of street segments, intersections and other places in Boston (88.5%) never experienced a single firearm incident.

We can take it even further: according to Robert Muggah, the Canadian founder of the Igarapé Institute, 99% of violence in the United States is concentrated in 5% of street addresses.

Let me repeat this: 99% OF VIOLENCE IN THE US IS CONCENTRATED IN 5% OF STREETS.

So Kessler is wrong. My verdict: four Pinocchios.
