Support for Gun Control.

So I stumbled across this graphic today, intended to show where support for gun control lies in the US. I won’t claim that it’s at all scientific but, if the results are to be believed, I don’t think there are any surprises either. The greatest support comes from large population centers, often (but not always) the most crime ridden cities of their respective states, the red dots/areas on the map (and there aren’t a lot of them). Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Boston, D.C., Philly, Trenton…None of them places that any reasonable person could call peaceful and quiet. Still, it looks nothing like a reflection of the alleged 90% of the population favoring stronger gun control so many anti-gunners often claim.
