I just found this blog and was boggled by the number of murders in San Francisco last year, and how many of them were with GUNS. The second amendment talks about the rights of a "WELL-REGULATED MILITIA" to bear arms. I don't think any of the people who committed murder last year with a gun were in a milita, do you?

I grabbed your data and did an analysis of it.
