Regardless, the homicide rate in this country has steadily declined over the last fifty years and has even hit all time lows. Those changes have corresponded to a increase in gun control along with many other initiatives to limit violent crimes.
So if the number of homicides is dropping at the same rate as homicides by firearms, then there is no correlation between gun control laws and then drop in firearm related homicides.
There is a correlation between the decrease in firearm-related homicides and homicides as a whole.
