This doesn't seem as correlative as the line function would imply. I'd like to know the r-squared and p-value of this regression. Judging by the outliers, I think this has as much to do with homogeneity/education/quality of life as it does gun ownership.
Wyoming's the least populated state in the union, for example, there's more people living in the Colorado Springs, CO metro area than in the entire state of Wyoming.

So I'd take this Mother Jone's graph with a grain of salt.
