Baldwin v Brady 2011 crime rates

Earlier this year I compared the Brady Top Ten states with the most restrictive gun laws to the Baldwin Top Ten states with the least restrictive gun laws with regards to the Violent Crime Rates and the Murder/Non-negligent Homicide Rates. (All information was obtained from the FBI Uniform Crime Reports, 2011, Table 5)

As you would expect, the Baldwin Top Ten states had lower violent crime rates as well as lower homicide rates than did the Brady Top Ten. Here's what it looks like:

The violent crime rate for Illinois does not include data from Chicago. The data collection methodology for the offense of forcible rape used by Chicago, Illinois does not comply with national UCR Program guidelines.

Once again, the Brady top ten states came in under the national average, but barely

And, the Baldwin Top Ten:

Yes, once again, the gun loving states have lower violent crime and homicide rates than the national average and the Brady Paradises. Just so you boys and girls don't have to do the math, the Baldwin states have a 28.72% LOWER Violent Crime Rate and a 33.50% LOWER Murder Rate than the gun hating states that the Brady Bunch loves so much.

When I get some time in the next couple of days, I'll compare the gun crime rates between the Brady Top Ten and the Baldwin Top Ten.

PS: BS is the Brady Score
