In committing crimes, male are more violent as compared to their females counterparts. Scientifically, since birth of a male child, the child is more aggressive, shows a lot of restlessness, and takes many risks as compared to a girl child. In socialization, men are less amiable while women are highly amiable socially. However, young men are physically strong and very aggressive. Therefore, combining strength, less social amiability and aggressiveness, men are more violent than women are (Sally, 2010). Another possible reason as to why women are less violent is the victimization women face during crimes such as rape and sexual harassment, incest and battering (Kilday, 2007). The best method of controlling guns that will be more effective in reducing crimes is banning of gun selling and licensing any gun possession. Many criminals use guns to scare their victims. Banning will assist in identifying criminals and differentiating them from other people.
In conclusion, men commit the largest number of violence related crimes. Very few women commit violent crimes because they socially care about other people in the community. Young men and women commit many crimes (Siegel, 2008). The number of men committing crime determines the number of women committing crime
