Guns Cause Murder?

The correlation between U.S. murder rates and NICS background checks/100,000 people from 199-2014 is -0.93.  Yes, I'm working on another paper to blow holes in their claims that guns increase murder.  Interestingly gun sales per 100,000 Americans doubled from 0.033 in 1999 to 0.066 in 2014.
