I do feel the author has missed a trick by taking the overall US murder rate rather than rates for specific states. For instance, New Hampshire, which has incredibly liberal gun laws, has a murder rate of 1.1 per 100,000 head of population, compared to a murder rate of 1.6 per 100,000 in Belgium, which has very illiberal gun laws.
