It's a funny chart but it isnít accurate. According to recent FBI statistics:

Vermont & New Hampshire have among the lowest gun violence rates, but they voted blue. Louisiana (especially New Orleans) has the highest gun violence rate, but it's a red state. Other areas in the chart aren't accurate either.

Iíve looked into this and Iíve found there is NO correlation between gun control laws and gun violence rates one way or the other. Here are a couple of other examples:

Chicago and NYC both have very restrictive gun control laws. Chicago is having an extraordinary high gun violence rate lately. New York City has been having the lowest gun violence rates its had for decades and it continues to decline.

The gun violence rate started to declined two years before the AWB was in effect between 1994 and 2004. After it lapsed in 2004 and Ďassaultí weapons became popular, the gun violence rate CONTINUED TO GO DOWN.

What the chart does show is a correlation between population density and gun violence. Personally I believe the crime rate has been going down because the boomers are getting older. Burglary & robbery is not an old manís game.

(But it is a cute chart.)

I could just look at the chart and see it was wrong. First off, the "high incidents of gun violence" highlights the northern portion of Maine, which is barely populated.

Chicago isn't even on that map, neither is the Dallas Fort worth area. I'm not sure of the crime rate of Dallas, but I'm sure it would show a little blue.

Secondly, someone did this same map when Bush ran Against Gore, claiming the ratio was like 13-6 in the voting demographics...
But it turned out it was more like 6-4.

However, the general gist of the map IS accurate. Democrat strongholds are the cities, and the cities have a much higher crime rate.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience , kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.

Pray for the hundreds of thousands of innocent people being killed by Islam across the world.
