INTRODUCTIONPrevious research indicates that the numbers of young people between 10 and 25 years old who have been legally accused of gun crime are 81%, while 90% of them are male. Out of the 81% youth accused of gun crime, 78% of them are actually black. Some analysts believe that the vice is like a cancer that is spreading in a vicious cycle-from the street-to our street-to your street. It is therefore a social problem that needs to be addressed as soon as possibleIn fact, the same statistics continue to indicate that London alone accounts for nearly 40% of all the gun and knife crimes committed in Britain every year and the trend continues.

It is such kinds of statistics that this dissertation ill try to reach on and reach a conclusion on what could be easily done to address the root causes of this problem. Cressida Dick, the metropolitan police commander once argued that all the guns that are being used by the youth are only a replica of the real ones but equally dangerous.

In particular, I look into the causes of the increase in gun crime among young black males
