Mapping Support for Gun Control
ISideWith has created an interesting map showing support for gun control laws across the USA.
ISideWith asks visitors to its website to answer a series of questions to discover which political candidate best matches their personal beliefs. One of the questions visitors to the site are asked is 'Do you support increased gun control. The Support for Gun Control Google Map breaks down the answers given to this question at different administrative levels.
You can view the results at state level. You can also enter a zip-code into the map to view the level of support for gun control at the local level. I haven't examined the results in any depth but it appears at first glance that the results show a general trend of more support for gun control in large cities and less support for gun control in more rural areas.
