Connecticut was left out of the comparison because it is a combination
of high crime/high gun control areas and low crime/low gun control
areas. WHile NY is not part of New England, it is part of the
NorthEastern US. I was not specifying New England as a whole, I was
comparing northern New England states with the rest of the NorthEast...

Your misperception makes me wonder about the comprehension capabilities
of other anti-gun types.... see how easily an insulting phrase cane be
turned around one you???? ;)
