Brady scores vs FBI crime stats? That would probably be the easiest way to come up with something half way solid.

Shit, just compare Juarez,  Mexico to El Paso, TX.

It's the same damn city, and the international border down the middle makes for as good a case study in the ineffectiveness of gun laws as any.

El Paso should be awash in blood if the gun banners were right, and Juarez would be paradise on earth, with rainbow beaches and cotton candy clouds.

But Juarez's gun crimes are the fault of the fat capitalist pig gun makers who sell their firearms to poor Mexicans who can't help but shoot each other with them.

Yup.








A quick google landed me at calguns where someone appears to have done the work already. Link



ETA:



There appear to be a few different sites that have tried to trend/graph Brady Scores against Crime stats. Shouldn't be too hard to find something that displays what you want. However, I would question the accuracy of anything beyond its face value.

I suspect comparing crime rates to a city's demographics will be more revealing than comparing crime rates to a city's gun control laws.
