nola gunjDo states that have lax gun laws, like Louisiana have a corresponding higher gun-related killings? Has the Heller decision resulted in an increased risk of gun-shooting incidents?  According to one organization, Violence Policy Center (VPC), the answer appears to be a resounding yes.

Based upon its statistics, Louisiana is 3rd worse in the nation in gun death rate per 100,000, that the top three states in gun death rates, Alaska, Alabama and Louisiana possess the highest percentage of households gun ownership.  VPC also claims that those states with the lowest gun ownership accordingly have substantially lower death frequencies.
