A new study by the Centre for Defence Studies at Kings College in London finds handgun crime rose by 40% in the two years after Britain banned the weapons in 1997. "The research, commissioned by the Countryside Alliance's Campaign for Shooting, has concluded that existing laws are targeting legitimate users of firearms rather than criminals," the BBC reports.

Now, now, garandman, you know as well as I do that any study funded by gun-nuts is invalid on its face. Only studies paid for by stridently anti-gun groups can be trusted to be completely factual and unbiased.

He's right, thing is it will get worse in Canada not Britain, See when the US had school shootings Canada had to get more stringent laws to bring a stop to this... even though it wasn't happening in our country. don't ask me how it works.

You're not being funny. Now Parliament is passing further restrictions on air-guns and toy guns. No joke.

Scarecrow does it suck living in Canada with all the gay gun laws?

No. It came as part of an e-journal called The Federalist. My experience that this is a VERy reputable source. To verify the info, I'd do a search on any of the organizations listed in the original post. or go to www.federalist.org, and ask for verification.
