Has a gun ban made England safer?

From the October 9th, 2012 edition of the Guardian News...
*551 homicides (includes murder, manslaughter and infanticide) were reported in 2011/12, a considerable drop on the previous year's total of 638. Homicides are now down to around half of the figure for 2001/2.
*Attempted murders also fell, but by a smaller proportion, dropping by 7.6% in comparison to a fall of 13.6% in homicides.
Interesting information given the current discussion of guns in America...
