Nick, wake up!
Look at the wikipedia source this cites before you spill bull$%@# from your mouth. The States with and without gun control are all over the place as far as pop%. Yes, California has the most deaths from homocides with guns and has tough gun control laws. Mississippi has 1/10th the population of California but is 20% higher gun homocide rate as a state with very low gun laws.
In other words, you don't know what you're talking about so STFU.

A better metric to look at is the number of PER CAPITA gun homicides by state. Studies show that states with stricter gun laws, a lower percentage of gun ownership, a higher educated population and a higher level of wealth have less gun related violence.

Interesting how the states with the most Gun Control laws have the most crimes....shows you that Gun Control doesn't work at all.

Ok, if you look at the stats....it's obvious that the majority of the states with higher murder rates have one of the three problems....ONE- too many illegal immigrants, TWO- gang problems, especially in socialist calfornia, and finally, with exceptions like Texas....overly stupid and strict gun laws.

solutions.....kick out illegals in orderly and timely manner......kill or arrest gang members on sight and finally, STOP BOTHERING the law abiding hunters and gun owners.

All gun owners are not bad and the spineless education system and media these days need to let people think for themselves.

Soccer moms and whimpy high school teachers have no business telling me that I have no business owning a firearm, the Brady campaign too....what a joke.

please don't let the tuscon shooter or columbine animals speak for the American gun owners!!!

This chart appears to list total homicides by state, not homicides as a result of being shot with a gun.

e.g. the Bureau of Justice website shows that out of the typical 900 homicides per year in NY, only about 500 are usually committed using a gun.
