I am so proud of that country. Child's ice cream stolen at gunpoint [url]news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/uk/newsid_1398000/1398224.stm[/url] A six-year-old girl had her ice cream stolen at gunpoint, police have confirmed. The child was with two boys, aged two and four, when they were approached by three youths in Sydenham, south east London, last Friday evening. One of the youths aimed the gun at the girl's head and demanded her ice cream. The boys involved in the theft are described as black and aged between 14 and 18. The Metropolitan Police are appealing for witnesses. Detective Constable Owen Tim said: "The police are treating this investigation seriously as the children are sure they were threatened with a firearm." The incident happened in an area of London which has become notorious for gun crimes. In May a pregnant woman was shot by one of the occupants of a car with which her vehicle had collided in nearby Streatham.

Anytime I mention gun crime in the UK to my wife's relatives (British) their stock replies are: "Oh, that's all drugs related- that won't ever touch us." "Oh, that's all the West Indian 'Yardies' (read: BLACK drugs dealers..)-there are no Yardies in our town." "Oh, they must be getting all their guns smuggled in from the USA- that's the only place left in the world that sells guns." So: it's all the fault of a) drug dealers b) blacks and c) the Yanks that there's a gun problem in Britain.... >eyes rolling back into head< Cleopatra wasn't the only queen of denial....

Hmmm, let's see. HKs from Germany, Uzis from Israel, and Glocks from Austria. But the only place that sells guns is the US. Give me a freaking break. You are right about denial.

But the hottest sellers are Makaraovs, Tokarevs and Stechkens from Russia! Oh and Skorpions from the Czech Republic...

I guess the "youths" were threatened by the six year old girl. Makes me sick to my stomach. Let me see some punks try that in my neighborhood.
