Was it gun violence, gun murders, death by gun, or gun related crime?I already answered this yesterday. I think there's more gun violence in California than any other state because California has the strictest gun laws in the union.
Might population have anything to do with it?
It is enough for me to just point out that your conclusion is the conclusion of a faith based thinker.
I personally wouldn't comment with any confidence on the issue without looking at the last 30 years of data. It would take me several days, if the information is easy to find. And my level of conviction in whatever conclusion I came to would likely be less that yours, which you seem to have spent only moments on.
