    There is a discrepancy between the FBI data and the Louisiana uniform crime rates published by Louisiana law enforcement for 2010.
    FBI has 437 murders, LLE has 500.

    2010 was a low year for Louisiana, they are typically in the 12-17 range

    The discrepancy may be because the LLEO report came out earlier, and some of the "murders" may have been overturned between the LLEO report and the FBI.

    Yeah. Listening to Bob Costas talk about guns is almost as annoying as listening to Al Michaels talk about football. His stupid fucking pronunciation of every word ending in "all" ruins my football experience almost as much as the hot pink destruction of every NFL team's carefully crafted color scheme.

    Welker didn't have control of the bawel. That was clearly a blown cawell by the refs. Smawell errors like that can cost a team a much needed victory and keep them from reaching the playoffs at awell.

    I sure do miss me some Madden.

    I'm sorry. We were talking about guns. Guns good. Gun haters bad.

    The stats posted are largely determined by crime in the urban centers of the respective states, so for example, most of Michigan's crimes come from Detroit.

    When I read that state ranking I see "DC, New Orleans, Baltimore, Kansas City...".

    Note that although NJ has two of the murder capitals of the US (Newark and Camden), we're in the middle of the list because we also have a very high population density throughout the state and relatively few gun crimes outside the cities (as opposed to say Michigan, which is not nearly as evenly populated and whose major cities are rife with crime and poverty).

    New Hampshire and Vermont are so sparsely populated, even in their major cities, that they made the bottom. That, and everyone I know in both states has a small arsenal to deter criminals.

    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    I get 60% average deviation when ranking murder vs poverty and a 90% average deviation when I do murder v Urbanization.

    Something is missing...

    Quite thorough homicide stats for Canada can be found here.

    Looking at the most recent data, 2010:

    Overall homicide rate was 1/3 of the US (1.62/100K vs 4.8)

    31% of homicides were by firearm, knife 30%, beatings 21%. 64% of firearm homicides were by handgun, 23% by rifle/shotgun, 13% by other.

    There's a bunch of other stats about rates related to gang activity, various relationships. Makes for an interesting read.

    There is a decent correlation between murder and poverty for the 10 best states (they have low murder and low poverty) but it gets weird after that.

    Can't seem to hunt down good numbers on drug convictions by state, might be a correlation there.

    This s why I hate people who take simplistic views on either side. This is a ridiculously complicated issue!
