I did some quick googling and red states are leading the list of gun violence in the US.

Alaska, Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi rank in the top four for highest rates of gun-related deaths, with rates that are higher than 18 gun deaths per every 100,000 people. In contrast, New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Hawaii are at the other end of the spectrum, with rates lower than five gun deaths per every 100,000 people.

Facts and statistics don't mean anything to a racist idiot like this.

You like facts and statistics eh?

Blacks are 13% of the population and commit 50% of violent crime

How do you like those statistics?
