I Wonder if This Had Anything To Do With Crime Rates

Gun permits doubled in Michigan in 2009 | freep.com | Detroit Free Press
Applications and approvals for concealed weapons permits in Michigan doubled last year, as more than 73,000 people sought to obtain or renew licenses in the 12 months ending June 30, and 66,446 were approved, according to a recently released state police report.

That compared to 33,411 applications and 26,578 approvals in the preceding 12-month period.
The well-publicized increase in gun ownership. Things like this. And the well publicized decrease in crime. I wonder if they all relate.
