Actually, it can please both sides, if you just read the conclusion.

The conclusion mentioned another study that compare Canada and USA's murder rate in 1976-1980.

The murder rate was similar while USA had much higher gun ownership at the time.

So the pro-gun people can say, higher gun ownership does not lead to more murder.

While the anti-gun people can say high gun ownership has failed to deter crime.

Both sides WIN.
