This is dumb, even for you. There's no way to correlate such specific variables here. Vermont probably has strict gun control, but a homogenous, peace-nik lovey-dovey group of socialist vegans. Ergo the gun control is responsible? Or is the community?
States are dumb to analyze anyway. What is the gun violence in Illinois? Why even ask, since Chicago dwarfs the rest of the state in population and crime. It's like 2 different states. Urban vs suburban should be the study.
