Highest Crime Per Capita (Disregard #1 DC for comparison, DC is a city not a state & only included to be all inclusive of violent crime nationally)
Note the top 6 are PRO GUN states, only Md is gun control, Delaware neutralish.
2.Tennessee: 643.6 .. 3.Nevada: 607.6 ... 4.Alaska: 603.2
5.New Mexico: 559.1 ... 6.South Carolina: 558.8 ... 7.Delaware: 547.4
8.Louisiana: 496.9 ... 9.Florida: 487.1 .... 10.Maryland: 476.8



How do your figures (I wont accuse you of using facts) square with the following map?





I'll tell you. Nevada and Alaska and New Mexico make your list not because they have high amounts of violent crime, but because they have a small population. Disregard them from the list, as you'd have us do with DC, and New York Texas and California take their place. Disregarding the three low population states, Pro-gun TX with its higher pop makes the list, and NY and CA with their ridiculous gun control and higher populations make the list in spite of both.


That changes the picture a bit doesn't it Jimmy, when two of the three flagship gun control states make the top ten?

Well I'll be, if you make the change I suggest, the data starts to support that map I posted, and branfords assertions.

Lastly, speaking of concern on another thread, theres this:

There are 4x as many guns since 1960, so why isn't there 4x the rates of murder and violent crime?

You never did answer that.

Here, I circled a certain section of my map:



Maybe you can tell us all why the encircled pro-gun states (none of which have strict gun control) don't have actual gun violence incidents in quite the same way the places outside the circle, many of which having strict gun control, do.
