How to Reduce Gun Deaths

The Rand Corporation has released a Gun Policy Comparison Tool which allows you to see the likely effects of different gun laws on the number of gun related deaths in all US states.

The gun policy tool is very simple to use. You simply select any combination of fifteen different gun policies to view a choropleth map showing the impact those laws would be likely to have on each US state if they were introduced as nationwide laws. The laws that you select from range from permitless carry laws to the introduction of universal background checks. The results are based on a survey of 95 gun policy experts.

You can also view a range of different outcomes on the map for each combination of gun policies that you want to check. As well as the outcome on homicides in each state you can also view the likely positive or negative outcomes on different types of crime, on the sales of firearms and on the right to bear arms.
