Correlation between a State's laws and gun violence
You've heard the faux refrain from gun nuts that laws don't prevent criminal gun usage. Wrong! See this article based on this report. It reviewed the 10 States with the most gun violence, which unsurprisingly tend to have the least stringent gun control laws. "The 10 states with the weakest gun laws in America collectively suffer from a level of gun violence that is more than twice as high as the 10 states with the strongest gun laws." 7 of them were rated F, the rest D or D-. The worst States are, in order: Louisiana, Alaska, Alabama, Arizona, Mississippi, South Carolina, New Mexico, Missouri, Georgia, Arkansas. I know, more facts, which have never stopped regressives from their unsubstantiated nonsense and paranoia.
