Anyone?
To be honest, it's a lot of research papers and a lot of broken links. The one consistent thing I found is a lot of the research includes reference or bits of data from this study and is used to support the model that guns have an affect.

A refutation by this guy when more states were added and 5 more years of data:
http://www.brookings.edu/press/books...ggunpolicy.pdf

And an admission that although some crime had went up with that model's extension, it showed a decrease of 3% in rapes and 8% in murders.



Problem here is with every study, they've got another study that refutes it or shows insignificant data. It's a matter of who you believe.
