I thought this was worthy to note since Virginia is about to pass the largest gun confiscation scheme to date in the USA, essentially outlawing all guns with no grandfather clause. See links:

I'll be curious to see how this evolves with the research below when it comes to crime rates.

Which appears to be doing better in the survey results below?
Can you post the same comparison at the state level?
