Those in favor of disarming the citizenry claim that fewer guns will mean less gun crime. This assertion is not based on facts, as can be seen in the chart below. Not only is there no correlation between increases in gun ownership and homicides, but the relationship in fact is negative.

As any scientist will say correlation does not mean causation. This is so simplistic it's laughable.

If course correlation does not mean causation. The Heritage Foundation would be the last to prove correlation. This chart seems to compare 2012 to 2013. I think this is presented to justify more guns, and that the Heritage Foundation is very big on rhetoric.
