After several sorts on the table, a few things stare out as prime factors in gun violence: restrictive gun laws, percentage of black population, and percentage of illegal immigrants.
Given that the data are available, it would be fascinating to normalize a similar table of composite gun crime data with the latter two of those three factors to see what the actual effect of restrictive gun laws really was. Needless to say, one would be blowing off the impact of gang violence, but if the inverse correlation with restrictive gun laws was good, the revelation would be compelling.
