I think the most prudent interpretation of the drop in crime rates isn't necessarily that the single factor of the liberalization of gun laws precipitated that result; rather, we can conclude, with significant confidence (in my humble opinion), that more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens do not increase crime in general whatsoever. A major anti-gun argument is that more guns = more crime, no matter what. However, if more guns do not necessarily reduce crime, but definitely do not increase it, there is no rational basis on which to propose the reduction of legal gun ownership - or to effect laws which purport to disarm criminals, but attempt to do so by impeding the law abiding.
