"We Not Playing Checkers, We Playing Chess": Explaining Urban America and African American Gun Violence

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Based on semi-structured interviews with eight African American men obtained via snowball sampling, this presentation describes how guns were introduced, obtained, used or not used, loved, and despised. For most, guns were introduced and obtained during early childhood. Both individual factors, such as the need for instant gratification and social factors, like economic instability, influenced these men to participate in the street economy. Once involved, the dangers of their community and the ambiguity of their safety and survival became more apparent. This provoked gun carrying and usage. Given these and other findings, implications for gun prevention policies are discussed.
