Actually, I think one of the of the major contributors is the decline in crystal methamphetamine use. We saw a similar trend downward beginning in the early 1990's, at which point most users of crack cocaine were either incarcerated, rehabilitated or deceased.

As others have noted, more guns does not equal more crime, and that's good news in and of itself.
