The Bigly Concept, Per Capita, Alert:
Gov. A-Butt claimed that California, with strict gun legislation suffers, from more mass shootings.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which tracks firearm mortality rates by state, in 2020, the latest year with recorded data, there were 4,164 gun deaths in Texas, compared with 3,449 in California.
When taking into account that California has around 9 million more residents that Texas, according to U.S. Census Bureau estimates, as of July 2022, this means California had an average of 8.5 gun deaths per 100,000 people, while Texas has 14.2 per 100,000.
This means that, according to the 2020 figures, Texas’s gun death rate is around 67 percent higher than that of California’s, per 100,000 people.
