Not bad a few points slightly off.

Like the dangerous cities he separates the cities based on the Gun Control regime in the State they are in but totally ignores the fact that the three cities he lists in low control states (New Orleans, St Louis, and Detroit) have very strict controls imposed by the Democrat run cities themselves. And it's safe to say the same likely exists for the other cities. Even Houston TX (same size and similar ethnic makeup as Chiraq but less than half the gun crime) has tried to impose stricter laws than Texas Law allows.

Additionally he makes a mistake by trying to combine Stand your Ground and Castle Doctrine. While similar and in some states related, they are different laws and different concepts.

Oh and he's obviously never hunted Mule Deer out here in the west. A 30-06 might be a bit much for a small white-tail at 50 yards or less as often seen back east but out here it's an appropriate round.

And he says that silencers slow the bullet to reduce the crack of the bullet. That's not true. Bullet speed usually either stays the same, or increases with the use of a silencer/suppressor.

True.
From: Suppressors: What You Need to Know

Modern suppressors allow the use of full-power ammunition, do not reduce the muzzle velocity, do not contact the bullet during flight, and often aid accuracy. On high-power rifles, a suppressor acts like a muzzle brake and reduces recoil, and of course, the "ka-BOOM" report of the shot is reduced 25-30 dB, yielding a sound not unlike high-pressure gas escaping from an air hose being disconnected.
