Do California's Gun Laws Prevent Gun Deaths?

Do gun-control laws prevent gun deaths?

Proving causality is tough, especially in the United States, which has long had an effective federal ban on gun research, engineered by the gun lobby and sustained by congressional majorities.

But available data shows a clear link between strong gun laws and less gun carnage, and that’s good enough for me.

In the latest gun-control ranking of the states by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence and the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, seven of the 10 states with the strongest gun laws in 2013 also had the lowest rate of gun deaths: Hawaii, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and California. Conversely, many states with the weakest gun laws had the highest gun-death rates.
