States with higher gun ownership rates and weak gun laws have the highest rates of gun death: Louisiana, Alabama, Alaska, Mississippi, and Nevada. Ranking last for gun deaths were Hawaii, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York.
If you want to argue that increased gun deaths are a small price to pay for freedom... well, I respectfully disagree. But let's at least all be on the same page and accept that fewer gun restrictions and more gun ownership means more gun deaths.
