DID YOU REALLY NEED A STUDY?:

The States With The Most Gun Laws See The Fewest Gun-Related Deaths (Libby Isenstein, 8/28/15, National Journal)

While it's cer­tainly true that a num­ber of factors con­trib­ute to the high rates of gun vi­ol­ence in the U.S., a com­par­is­on of state laws versus rates of shoot­ing deaths does show a cor­rel­a­tion. The states that im­pose the most re­stric­tions on gun users also have the low­est rates of gun-re­lated deaths, while states with few­er reg­u­la­tions typ­ic­ally have a much high­er death rate from guns.
