According to data made available from 2013, the states with the highest gun death rates allow Open Carry without a permit.
The states with the lowest gun death rates have strong gun violence protection laws.

You read from activists and politicians on a range of issues that the country should follow the will of the people. Poll after poll shows support in the 70-80% range across the US for background checks.
With support THAT high, why are our elected officials not passing these common sense protections?
