Guns Cause Gun Deaths

Empirical evidence overwhelmingly shows that higher rates of gun ownership are associated with higher rates of gun deaths, both from homicide and suicide.

I was into the article until I realized that gun deaths included suicides.
I don't care about intra-person violence at all.
I only care about inter-person violence.

The relationship is established for both homicides and for suicides. The influence on suicides is greater than the influence on homicides, but the relationship is pretty strong even in the case of homicides.
