I came across this site online from Kaiser while researching a quite different topic for a penigma post, and thought it would be appropriate here. I was researching how red states compare with blue states for effectiveness of political ideology as measured by various statistics in comparison, like crime and population in prison.
This is an interactive map, by clicking on state you can see that state's gun death statistic. It is worth noting that the highest rates for gun deaths are among the red states, but not all of them - for example South Dakota and Nebraska are also among the lowest gun death states.
In that red state blue state series, one of my commenters suggested there was greater freedom in higher gun ownership. I argued back that there is no great freedom - or safety - in putting greater numbers of people behind bars, or in being dead from a shooting.
