The U.S. Supreme Court overturns the D.C. gun ban in March and the city records the lowest murder rate in 45 years... Coincidence?

A criminal has to think twice these day don't they.  The home they're breaking into might just have owner with a gun instead of a baseball bat. 

Overall murders in D.C. are down 25 percent.   I'm sure a lot of murders are criminal vs. criminal in gang fights...  I'd like to know how much 'criminal vs. innocent' murders are down.
