    You are reading murders in 2010 with Maryland in 3rd.  When narrowed to gun murders it's Missouri in 3rd and Maryland in fourth. You are sorting on the wrong column.  We all do that and this isn't criticism--it's just a clarification.  The difference between the two isn't great.  

    •  I disagree. I am using the correct column. (0+ / 0-)

      What difference does it make how one is murdered?
      As Kos has said "There is a bizarre obsession with the delivery mechanism of death"

      Nor am I missing the point: Availability is easier in the states with more gun rights, yet they have a lower murder rate.
      It would appear that there are, at the very least, far more pertinent variables for murder rates than firearm availability.

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

        and gun murders....this is really fucking obvious.  

        And wrong again.  Look at the south with the laxest gun laws and higher murder rates.  When you have high poverty and easy access to guns, those are the highest rates of gun murders.  Then, high poverty, then low poverty.  It's fairly simple pattern for any honest human being.
