After a three-year rise in murders, 2017 was the most violent year in Mexico’s recent history.The more than 29,000 murders registered by the National Public Security System represented a 27 percent jump from 2016, and a nearly 60 percent increase since 2014.As is usually the case, organized crime was the chief driver of this wave of bloodshed.
And Rasmussen finds that 54% think massive government failures are mostly to blame for the Parkland, Florida shootings, while only 33% blame a lack of gun control.It's one poll and we always like to see more than one finding. Nevertheless, the poll makes sense. In other words, people don't automatically blame guns when a shooting occurs. My guess is that the public understands that this is a lot more complicated than just blaming guns.
Interestingly, the finding is even more pronounced among those who have school-age children: 61% think government is mostly to blame, while only 23% point the finger mostly at guns.
