it's been proven that crime vanishes in the face of an armed society


I'm curious, where has this been proven?

There have been a number of studies where the crime rate of an "unarmed" area of a state was compared to areas that were armed, and a significant change in crime was noticable. A number of good articles can be found at :

This is actually one of the topics that tends to get thrown around, IE "More Guns, Less Crime", but with all things, education and a dose of reality is a must in this debate. (Reality as in what can happen during and after a shooting,Hollywood VS Reality, Responsibilities of a gun owner, etc.,etc. etc.)
