    Yeah, this one has degenerated into a distraction that is neither productive or amusing. I am done...

    Murder rate. Probably number of murders per 100,000 people.

    got it. i wasnt sure if it was per 1k or 10k, so i had to ask; that is an informative graph.

    that is a lot of murder.

    no surprise seeing those six on the left hand side. i was also surprised to see TX in the middle, figure it would be closer to the right.

    that is a very informative graph.

    One big thing to get from that chart is the group of states in the lower left corner. Not only do they have the lowest gun deaths, but probably the strictest gun laws. And some of the largest/densely populated cities, which usually coincide with higher violent crime rates.

    Graphing by state may be a bit skewed, as some urban areas in a state may be significantly different in character than the rural.

    And plenty of states with extremely loose gun and carry laws are on the low end.

    Addrrssig problems with gun violence, policing, etc. seems like we are looking at symptomatic treatments rather than root causes, like poverty, an utterly broken education system, health care, and social injustice. As physical objects, guns are easier to identify and control, but I think of them as a bit of a red herring.

    while on this subject: ive always thought of Joe Rogan as a crackhead, but this is the best thing ive heard him say in my entire life:

    This country has a mental health problem disguised as a gun problem.


    Granted, its not all mental health but more or less a couple of issues (like the ones mikeD touched down on)

    Has anyone bothered to research how may gun deaths are cause by stolen or illegally purchased firearms? Someone with a carry permit and their gun have less of a chance of causing any kind harm than someone being struck by lightning. Over 98% of gun violence involves guns that are illegally owned.

    Many states don't require carry permits, either for concealed, not concealed, or both.
