    Table 4 shows murders contrasted between 2019 and 2018 by reporting cities.

    While national murder rates dropped in 18 and 19 some cities saw increases.

    Removing the 6 consistently highest murder rate cities from our national statistics would drop US murder rates to European levels.

    Put another way, comparing the highest murder rate cities with others of comparable sizes shows that guns aren't the problem if similarly sized cities in states with and without draconian anti-2A laws are so different in their rates of homicide.
