Gun violence in Cleveland lower than in the ’90s, says Daniel Flannery

Shooting deaths in Cleveland stall, but gun violence still takes a toll

The Plain Dealer: The pace of shooting deaths in the area has stalled, and many illegal guns have been confiscated, but there are still hordes of cheap, illegal guns on the streets, especially those carried by teenagers. Daniel Flannery, the Dr. Semi J. and Ruth W. Begun Professor in Violence Prevention, said gun violence is still at lower levels than it was in the early ’90s but that recent cuts will diminish efforts to reduce gun crime.
