4. Let's look at the years 93-98.

The murder rate is dropping sharply in that 5 year period, and so is the new gun import and manufacturing in the US, which we assume equates to gun sales. Letís say there were 250 million guns in circulation in 92. There were about 4 million guns made in the US in 93, plus another 3 million or so imports, so we added 7 million guns to the total available making 257 million guns, but fewer gun deaths. The following four years added another 20 million guns or so, bringing the total up to around 277 million guns available, yet murder rates continued to drop.
