Funding "gun violence research" is like providing money to academics to discover why Wednesday always seem to come after Tuesday.
The great majority of shootings and murders take place in certain parts of certain cities and are perpetrated by an easily-identified group of people.
In KCMO, KCK, and St Louis the statistics for many year make that fact very clear.
And it doesn't take millions of dollars for Ivy League studies and most likely more tax money for "consultants and facilitators" to address the issue and do something about it.
It takes moral courage and leadership.
Both lacking.
Certainly locally.
