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

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.
