Shocking no one with a brain, study shows concealed carry states have fewer murders

I’m simply going to quote from the abstract of this study, grinning smugly all the while:

The purpose of the present study is to determine the effects of state-level assault weapons bans and concealed weapons laws on state-level murder rates. Using data for the period 1980 to 2009 and controlling for state and year fixed effects, the results of the present study suggest that states with restrictions on the carrying of concealed weapons had higher gun-related murder rates than other states.
