There was no tangible difference. Violent crime in this country reached a peak in the late 1980's, and it began a downward trend in 1991. That trend continued to 2011.

The AWB ran from 1994-2004. Even many supporters admitted that there was no measurable decline attributable to it. What's more, crime continued to decline after it expired.
