The 'Gun Violence in America' Chart is a Safety Reaction to Colorado

 - Jul 25, 2012
The shooting in Aurora, Colorado that left 12 dead and 58 wounded once again roused the debate on further gun control in the United States, and served as the inspiration for the 'Gun Violence in America' infographic. Whether this will bring about change is unclear, but it has definitely become a prominent political discussion on the table.

The Gun Violence in America infographic points to some interesting statistics. For instance, that states with stricter firearm laws have lower deaths by gun violence than those without -- even though the argument of those states with less gun control is the opposite. In 2009 31,347 Americans were killed at the end of a firearm, and 66,769 were wounded by a gun. This infographic seeks to educate people on weaponry and get them involved in getting stricter gun laws across America.
