123. No - the root cause of violence is high levels of poverty and low levels of education

which is exactly what the list of states in the OP shows.

My point is that in the North, similar areas of extreme poverty and low levels of education are equally violent.

I assume that access to guns is the same no matter where in the country you live so I don't think gun laws and gun access are an issue in the difference between north and south - just like drugs, criminals will get all the guns they want.
