Um, didn't Wyatt Earp outlaw gun possession in tombstone too?
It is an acceptable tenet for a very long time, in the most gun-rich aspects of American culture, you have to "leave your guns at the city-line". Firearms in high-density situations are a much different story from even outside the city line. It isn't a libertarian issue, it is an anarchy issue.
There's nothing acceptable about it. Only an idiot would leave his guns at the city line.
Do you have any evidence, anecdotal or otherwise, to support that hypothesis? When I was in Chicago's dense inner city I personally practiced non-violence. Twice my life was saved by good people practicing concealed carry who drew their weapon and convinced my attacker to stop. Historically, illegal aliens in Chicago's dense inner city have felt that they could not call the police for protection. Thus, a high percentage of them practiced conceal carry. The criminals knew this and thus illegal aliens are not targeted by the criminals.
But their is some "gun crime" among illegal aliens. It is mostly related to not being able to hold their Corona and escalating an argument with their cousin or best friend. It rarely endangers the rest of us... at least in Chicagoland.
If it is an anarchy issue, then are libertarian issues like freedom of speech restricted by the threat of anarchy ?
