76. Vermont's gun death rate is only exceeded by one state in their Northwest Region

The FBI (and other governmental organizations) categorizes the country into Regions, Geographic Division and States.

Vermont is in the Northeast region, New England division with Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Of those six states Vermontís gun death rate of 9.7 per 100,000 (below the National figure of 10.2) is higher than the six others in their New England division. The rest of the Northeast Region is the Middle Atlantic division N. Y. 4.9, New Jersey 4.7 and the only state in the ten state Northeast Region with a higher gun death rate at 10.7, Pennsylvania.
Most recent avail 2009 National Vital Statistics Report, Vol. 60, No. 3, December 29, 2011
See Table 19 page 146 http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/nvsr/nvsr60/nvsr60_03.pdf

Unreasonable to compare Vermont to Chicago.
