A new study says states with the toughest gun laws have some of the highest rates of firearm homicides and suicides in the country.
The new study, published by the Harvard Injury Control Research Center, looked at data from 2014 to 2018.
It found that the states with more than 200,000 residents had the second-highest rate of firearm homicide deaths per 100,000 people.
Those states with 10,000 or fewer residents had an overall rate of suicide with the highest rate in the nation.
There were some notable differences in the states, with states with a higher percentage of residents living in poverty and more people living in rural areas having the highest suicide rates.
Overall, the states that had the highest firearm homicide rates had higher percentages of residents who were poor and lived in rural and exurban areas.
The study said states with low levels of gun ownership and more violent crime were the most likely to have high rates of suicides and firearm homicide.
“It is important to note that firearm suicide is a rare event and that gun homicide is a serious problem,” the study said.
“In fact, firearm suicide occurs at a rate that is at or below the national rate for every state and local jurisdiction in the United States.”
The authors also found that states with high gun ownership had the most homicides, and states with higher rates of violence were the least likely to experience a firearm homicide as a result of suicide.
The report also found the states most likely or most likely not to have a gun law that would prevent people from owning guns.
The states with highest rates and least gun laws were those with the lowest percentage of people living below the poverty line.
