It didnt happen again.
Seems whenever proponents of gun control the perpetually confused and fearful critters that they be watch law and society move against them, they predict Armageddon. When America had only ten states allowing people to carry concealed firearms, and Florida had the Audacity to Hope to Change that, every anti-freedom politician and two-bit flack hollered that Thermopylae levels of blood would flow through the streets. Three decades and 31 states later, it didnt happen. In fact, crime has fallen, especially the violent variety.
Even in bloody Washington D.C.

It had fallen 10% in the first year after the Supremes said shooting buglers was justified even inside the beltway. Rapes, robberies and aggregated assaults are also descending toward almost acceptable levels.
Mayor Fentys fevered flimflam, where he responded to Newsweeks post-Heller inquiry of Is it possible to draft regulations targeting criminals specifically? By saying I dont think we would ever draft a law in which we would single out any particular person or group.

It's in the private clause of private property. Duh.
“...more guns didn’t cause more crime..”
Of course not, per the seminal, foundational work:
So, even with the uncivilized, non-law abiding savages that infest DC, this fundamental fact holds true.
and what, precisely, do “buglers” have to do with private property? Learn to read, duh.
You can pick your friends and you can pick your nose, but you can’t pick your friend’s nose.
