Blacks are also the most represented in murder victims vastly overshadowing their percentage of the population. Most blacks are murdered by other blacks.

In 2005, among males aged 15 to 19 years, the homicide rate was:

* 3.5 per 100,000 among white non-Hispanics

* 7.9 per 100,000 among Asian/Pacific Islanders

* 15.4 per 100,000* among American Indian/Alaskan Natives

* 27.8 per 100,000 among Hispanics

* 62.1 per 100,000 among Blacks

Blacks were 12.6% of the population in the 2010 United States Census.

So, even though they comprised only 12.6% of the population, blacks committed more homicides than any other racial group.

A November 2012 Mass Shootings Analysis report issued by the New Jersey Intelligence & Analysis Unit (NJ ROIC) in partnership with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security shows semiautomatic handguns are the most common weapons used to carry out mass shootings. The report was issued one month before the Newtown shooting in which, according to the coroner and police, the killer used a semi-automatic rifle.

"The mass killing incidents this year at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin and a movie theater in Colorado garnered international attention and focused the efforts of public and private sector security officials on...
