A Real Look at Murder and Suicide Numbers

Gun-control advocates love to cherry pick and group data in statistics to make things seem different then they really are.  For example, they love to clump suicide and murder into the same category and then pick out only those committed with a firearm.  There's a reason for that.

Their statistics always leave out Washington, DC, with the strictest gun-control laws in the country.  There's a reason for that, too.

Here we've taken raw data from the Center for Disease Control for suicides and murders, regardless of how the suicide or murder was committed, to get a more realistic picture of where the states stand relative to each other, while ignoring whatever tool was used.
