I was curious about brady scorecard vs violent crime stats as they usually involve a firearm.

So based on public data:

Brady Campaign 2007 scorecard

Usually the Brady Campaign numbers come near the beginning of the year, so this data is as close as a representation of the laws during the time of 2006.

Some interesting stats:
Code:
Of the bottom 25 (lower is better) states with crime: 
Avg crime rate/100k	avg brady rank	     std crime	        std Brady rank
255	                14.28	             68.6694983235      13.5662571601 (out liar of RI, with 47) 11.9815679698
		
Of the bottom 10 states with crime:	
Avg crime rate/100k	avg brady rank	     std crime	        std Brady rank
188.4	                11.3	             55.2875312445	12.8326839663 (out liar of RI, with 47), otherwise 2.8722813233
Other highlights:
1 state (RI, census rank 44) has a Brady Rank of higer than 15 (Brady rank 47). Two states have a Brady Rank higher than 10 besides RI. Maine with a census rank of 50 (least amount of crime) and Brady Rank of 12. Wyoming has a census rank of 43 and Brady rank of 11. The bottom (least violent crime) 10 are:

State, Census rank, Brady rank
Maine: 50, 12
North Dakota, 49, 4
Vermont, 48, 9
New Hampshire, 47, 6
South Dakota, 46, 6
Utah, 45, 4
Rhode Island, 44, 47
Wyoming, 43, 11
Idaho, 42, 6

Top 10 highlights:
3 states have higher that a Brady rank of 15. Michigan 10, with Brady rank of 22. Maryland, 8 with a Brady rank of 53, and Delware, 7 with a Brady rank of 22. 4 states have a Brady rank of below 10.

The top 10 states with the most crime are:

State, Census, Brady Rank
South Carolina, 1, 11
Tennessee, 2, 7
Nevada, 3, 11
Florida, 4, 8
Louisiana, 5, 4
Alaska, 6, 4
Delaware, 7, 22
Maryland, 8, 53
New Mexico, 9, 6
Michigan, 10, 22

I've tried uploading the file, but it won't let me. All I did was add the brady score to the data from census data and filter by census rank descending.
