I did my own research. I took table 20 of the FBI's homicide by weapon type page, added census numbers to get per-capita rates, and the three most common gun control laws- AWB, Permit to Purchase, and May Issue. There wa a very slight edge to the non-controlling states, but not enough I'd give much weight to it. There was also a slight lean to putting the gun control positive states in the middle-lower half of the states + DC. but the majority were in the middle. Doing my own research, and coming to my own conclusions, I believe the gun control laws currently out there don't really make a difference either way. They don't do anything, and should be kicked to the curb because they infringe a right without a clear benefit to the state.
