Ok then raw numbers Link Homicides has remained steady. Assaults have gone way up. Sexual assaults have gone way up. Robbery has dropped after peaking dramatically in 2001. You were saying? But I should be fair. While property crimes peaked around 2000 they have been dropping since then. And since the laws were made in response to a murderous rampage obviously the unaffected violent crime rate is nothing to be worried about while the late drop in property crimes show this law worked.
