Re: “Haslam Says He'd Do Away With Gun Permits

TRUE FACT: The state with the most gun control laws has a murder rate over four times higher than the state the the least gun control.

Source: Brady Campaign Scorecard and FBI Crime Report of 9/13/2010.

California has more gun control laws than any other state. They received a grade of 79 from the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence while Utah was the only state to score a zero. According to the FBI, Utah has a murder rate of 1.3 per 100,000 people while California's murder rate is 5.3 per 100,000 of population.

It is also worth noting the six states with the lowest murder rates all have adopted "shall issue" concealed carry. California has not. Since Tennessee adopted concealed carry violent crime has declined.
