24. comparing a state with less than 800,000 people to a state with over 38 million people

 

is not an apples to apples comparison. Let's compare apples to apples then. Let's compare Alaska with it's population of 735,132 people to Baltimore, with it's population of 622,104 people.
Baltimore just celebrated it 211th murder this past week and Baltimore has very strict gun control.
We don't have 2015 homicide/murder data for Alaska but we all know it's nowhere near 211. It's probably in the neighborhood of 10. Alaska has lax gun control laws as you know.

So why is there so much more murder and gun violence in Baltimore, despite all the gun control?

It's a simple question. answer it please.
