Infographic: A look at gun deaths and permits

A person in New York is less likely to die by a gun (murder, suicide, or accident) than in Missouri. Are the behaviors of a person so divergent according to where they live, or could the differences in gun laws play a part? (I’m a Missourian myself, so I can attest that the state isn’t filled with violent gun-toting miscreants.) This infographic shows a look at all firearm deaths by state and provides a bit of insight as to how easy (or hard) it is to procure a gun there. chart of gun deaths by stateInfographic found at https://img.njdc.com/media/media/2015/10/05/firearm-mainchart-oct5-3.png
