President Obama recently announced a series of actions aimed at reducing gun violence nationwide. Also, New York City will create gun courts and establish a police department to investigations related with guns. According to Reuters, there are some of the toughest gun laws in New York State. Thus I found some interesting date related with violence crimes in New York State. I found that since 1990, violence crime cases in New York State had been decreasing.
Among the types of different kinds of violence, aggravated assault played a bigger role in violence.
I sort the data by the region at first and selected New York City. Then I selected the year that I would like to explore. Also I filtered the data by county to find out the data I would like to use for the chart.
