Now, let’s take a look at Legend’s numbers, shall we? In his first tweet, he’s linking to the CDC’s stats on “Firearms Mortality” which shows Wyoming (death rate of 25.9/100,000) is more dangerous than Illinois (death rate of 14.1/100,000.)
But if you look at the CDC’s stats on “Homicide Mortality by State,” you find — not surprisingly — an entirely different picture than what Legend suggested. Illinois, with just gun homicides, has a death rate of 11.2/100,000 (1353 homicides) compared to Wyoming’s 4.9/100,000 and 29 homicides, which is the opposite point he was trying to make about Illinois.
