10. 4x as many guns since 1960, so why isn't there 4x the rates of murder and violent crime?

 

I also wouldn't harp on the "lowest crime per capita" too much, as 9 out of the
10 lowest states on your link have very lax gun laws and thriving gun cultures:

Lowest Crime Per Capita

1. Maine: 122.7
2. Vermont: 142.6
3. New Hampshire: 187.9
4. Virginia: 190.1
5. Wyoming: 201.4
6. Utah: 205.8
7. Idaho: 207.9
8. Kentucky: 222.6
9. Minnesota: 230.9
10. Hawaii: 239.2


Seems that you need reminding once again that the weight of verbiage used in an
argument is not indicative of the strength of said argument...
