    Suicides are included in the rate, so WY or AK really aren't any more violent once you account for that.

    Wow! That liberal anti-American page you like so much really lies a lot.

    Tennessee: 5.6, not 15.4.
    New Mexico: 3.3, not 15.5.
    Oklahoma: 3.0, not 15.6.
    Montana: 1.2, not 16.7.
    Wyoming: 0.9, not 16.7.
    Arkansas: 3.2, not 16.8.
    Alabama: 2.8, not 17.6.
    Mississippi: 4.0, not 17.8.
    Louisiana: 7.7, not 19.3.
    Alaska: 2.7, not 19.8.

    Why do liberals always lie about this stuff, especially when it is so easy to fact check?

    They use terms like "gun violence" that way they can include whatever they want and paint it all in one lump sum. Otherwise they have nothing. Its all extreme left wing propaganda there is no truth to it.,

    Because those states are already blue away and had no defenses?

    What such lying web pages don't bother to tell us is that 60% of all gun deaths are suicides. And that a significant number of those gun deaths are police killing criminals or those who they believe to be criminals. And last, the vast majority of those gun deaths are due to gang violence and drug turf wars.

    If we look at the figures honestly we will see that 2% of police officers are convicted of crimes of violence involving a gun every year. In that same year, LTC (license to carry) holders are only convicted at the rate of .3%.

    In other words, a police officer is 6 times more likely to be convicted of a gun crime than a LTC holder.

    If the anti-American nuts who want to abolish our civil rights were consistent they would be trying to disarm the police. Therein lies the real danger!

    The truth ruins the narrative.

    Liberals don't stop with their personal hatred for guns and desire to not own them, they want to force their stance on everyone else. They're tolerant that way.
