State gun ownership rates can be predictive of firearm homicide rates, according to a study published recently in the American Journal of Public Health.
Researchers from Boston University examined firearm homicide data collected between 1981 and 2010, from all 50 states. They determined that for every 1 percent increase in gun ownership, firearm homicide rates increased 0.9 percent.
"We observed a robust correlation between higher levels of gun ownership and higher firearm homicide rates," researchers wrote.

Maybe that's because more law abiding citizens are shooting and killing the thugs and thieves that break in to their homes and properties to do illegal things.
