    but I can't leave this to misinform people.

    Your link does not support your contention. If you look at divorce rates, it makes the same trend line. Thus, by your logic I can validly ask, "Why do the states with the least gun control [an assumption you make] have the highest divorce rates?"

    Lax gun control laws must cause divorce. And dozens of other correlations that are irrelevant.

    You have a long way to go to prove that the states with the highest gun homicide rates are that way because of the laws and not the culture. Its the culture that causes both.

      Look at Vermont. You need no permit to carry concealed in Vermont, and haven't for years. Yet we hear nothing about gunplay between random citizens.
