We've skirted around this issue for a while now, and it's about time we met it head on. What is the role that race plays in the gun debate? The first thing we need is good statistics to establish basic facts. I will be posting my findings later. I have to make breakfast and get on with my day. But feel free to share facts and statistics that break down firearm homicide (or overall death) by race so we can better understand the issue from that standpoint.
