The Least Peaceful States

Posted on the 14 April 2011 by Mikeb302000
I certainly would not want to disparage the tremendous work that went into this report, but we could have told them this. Am I right?
Top 10 least peaceful states:
1, Louisiana
2. Tennessee
3. Nevada
4. Florida
5. Alabama
6. Texas
7. Arkansas
8. Oklahoma
8. South Carolina
10. Maryland
What's your opinion? Is "least peaceful" more-or-less the same as "most likely to get shot?"
The index is based on five primary indicators: (1) number of homicides per 100,000 people, (2) number of violent crimes per 100,000 people, (3) number of people in jail per 100,000 people, (4) number of police officers per 100,000 people and (5) general availability of small arms.
It seems to me that guns play a major role in every one of those criteria.
What do you think? Please leave a comment.
