CDC: Firearm-Related Homicides Surged During Obama’s Last 2 Years in Office
Ed. In his Powerline article, author John Hinderaker connected the sudden and significant rise in gun deaths with the Black Lives Matter movement and the effect which it and the rest of the left had on police and policing, especially in big cities.
It isn't complicated: as police are intimidated/threatened out of doing their job, the crime rate rises.

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
shows that firearm-related homicides surged during Barack Obama’s last two
years in office.
According to the CDC, “the number of firearm-related homicides was
relatively stable during 2010–2014,” then firearm-related homicides sharply
For example, there
were 11,008 firearm-related homicides in 2014 and that number rose
to 14,415 in 2016. That is a 31 percent increase.
The CDC reports that
“use of firearms was the most common method [of homicide] in the United States
[2010-2016], followed by the use of instruments for cutting and piercing and
then suffocation.” However, if we break the category of firearms down by
examining the type of gun used in each homicide, we quickly see that knives–and
even fists–were more widely used than many of the specific kinds of firearms
Democrats’ seek to ban.
For example, FBI
crime stats for 2016 show over four times more people were stabbed to death
than killed with rifles of any kind. This means knives and other sharp objects
were far more common for homicide use than were AR-15s, AK-47s, etc. And FBI
crime stats for 2015 show nearly twice as many people were killed with bare
hands than with rifles, period. And because AR-15s and AK-47s only represent a
small sliver of the rifles available today, these stats mean hands and fists
were used as deadly weapons much more often than AR-style rifles.
