From the interview with the JAMA article author:BOVINE EXCREMENT you can say that!“In states that have the most [gun] laws, there is a 42 percent reduction in fatalities, compared to those states with the least number of laws,” Fleegler said. “You can’t necessarily say one absolutely led to the other … but you can say those things are related.”
We could likely find several other correlations to firearm deaths (which include suicide) - what about poverty levels? What about single parent family levels?
The only common sense gun legislation was written about 226 years ago.
