Not convinced there is any real correlation. Remember, first rule in statistics is the correlation does not mean causation. In other words, just because two variables seemingly are related does not mean they are the cause of each other.

I support concealed carry but suspicious of it really having a huge effect on gun violence.

The main reason is that if you look at gun violence data, you know that most of it is one thug shooting another thug. In other words, the vast majority of shooters and victims are both criminals. Since criminals generally are not going to be concealed carry, I can't see who the fact some suburban guy who got a CCW permit is lowering gun violence stats...

Yes because victims are NEVER killed in states without stand your ground laws. Them and their families are always unharmed.
