So just what the hell is a "gun crime" anyway? Is possesion of an evil replica gun a "gun crime". It sounds to me that the statistics just indicate that more acts are being classified as "gun crimes", concomitant with an increase in street crime. Viola! A significant increase in "gun crimes".

I said it yesterday, I'll say it again today: Statistics are used by most people in the manner that a streetlamp is used by a drunk - more for support than illumination.

Pathetic.  Simply pathetic.  And some of them believe that banning everything will actually DO something!

Here's my little reply to them:
I see some very smart comments here.  Your laws will not affect criminals, as they do not obey the laws.  The laws banning this and that only affect law abiding citizens, and consequently make them easier victims.  An unarmed man is attacked with greater confidence.  England has slid down the slippery slope, and will continue to slide, as long as the means and ability of law abiding citizens to protect themselves is stripped away from them.
