Correlations Between Gun Deaths vs. Economic, Psychological & Political Variables

Filed in Consumer Education , Infographics & Chartology , Public Awareness 1 comments

I’m a gun owner. I would estimate that every member of my immediate family owns at least one firearm. So to be clear, I want it to know where I stand on gun ownership.

However, based on some very eye-opening chartporn from The Atlantic, it would appear many misconceptions about politics and socioeconomic status exist when compared to gun related fatalities. Ostensibly, there will always be exceptions to the rule when it comes to humans and the decision making process, but when differing variables show such a high degree of differentiation (e.g. working class vs. college education) the correlations are interesting to say the least.

About 30,000 people die of gunshot wounds every year in the US, some accidental and some involving children. Unless lax gun ownership laws prevent the killing of 30,000 people, the lax laws in the US don’t make much sense, do they?
