When I did a quick read of the article, one point seemed to stand out -- longer terms of imprisonment correlated with lower crime rates. The article also pointed out some socio-economic factors that correlated with lower crime rates. The point is that there are a multitude of factors that can effect crime rate and I think the best we can confidently say is that there is no evidence to suggest higher gun ownership rates increase violent crime.
