Say it isn't so! Damn...I love this! Violent crime is rocketing up in Britain now...and most of them STILL DON'T GET IT! The good people of Britain are just stunned that so many guns are still on the streets, being used to shoot the innocents, AFTER they banned all firearms! Imagine that! Simply amazing ain't it? Now...kids are getting whacked for their freaking cell phones! My favorite part of this story is from the senior peeler at Scotland Yard who made the following understatement: "Dave Rodgers, vice chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, said [b]the ban made little difference to the number of guns in the hands of criminals.[/b] [shock] [b](HAH! This guy just became a poster child for the NRA!)[/b] "According to a recent survey, the number of crimes in which a handgun was reported increased nationally from 2,648 in 1997-98 to 3,685 in 1999-2000." "The underground supply of guns does not seem to have dried up at all," he said. [b]WELL DUH![/B] Finally, dear reader...please note the source of this article. For once the Libs got it right. This from the Leftist, FOB, Anti-Gun Washington Post! I am just shocked, horrified, and dismayed about this. Oh, the humanity!

Predictable idiot Leftist response - "We did not give the gun bans sufficient time to achieve their purpose." or worse.... "This illustrates the need for global U.N. gun bans." Either way, I assure you these facts will NOT slow them in their illogical and deadly crusade. Proving that the safety of the individual is NOT their goal.

The only source the Libs consider leftest, are sources from a socialist country, like Britain. Somehow they have the Washington Post pegged as right wing relgious.

All the guns are coming from other countries...So we need to ban guns in every country! That would end all the violence! We could all live in peace![8P][@:D] BigDozer66

Here's a link to the FOX News web site: [url]http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,42579,00.html[/url] This article, [b]with statistics from England[/b], is priceless. You know what - the "subjects" will still not "get it". They will continue to be satisfied with new laws. And make no mistake, they [b]will[/b] pass some new laws in response to this. Here are some of my favorite excerpts: [b]"The number of murders with a gun in London jumped by 90 percent during the same time, from 16 to 30. That's a far cry from the 640 murders — many gun-related — in New York alone last year, but that figure is way down from the peak of 2,262 in 1992. Street crime in Britain's capital has also skyrocketed in recent months, with 19,248 robberies reported between September and November 2001, up more than 100 percent from the 8,614 robberies during the same period the previous year"[/b] and [b]"Dave Rodgers, vice chairman of the Metropolitan Police Federation, [i]said the ban made little difference to the number of guns in the hands of criminals[/i]. According to a recent survey, the number of crimes in which a handgun was reported increased nationally from 2,648 in 1997-98 to 3,685 in 1999-2000."[/b] and [b]""People are increasingly concerned that we are losing the fight against armed crime,"[/b] Fight? What fight? You mean the Bobbies blowing their whistles - or the "subjects" cowering to a thug with a pocket knife? That type of "fighting"? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! They'll never learn. CMOS

There was an article I read in the last few weeks that basically said that. It said that all the illegal guns were coming from the U.S., with no proof, of course. Let's see, come across the ocean to the U.S. or go across the channel and buy Glocks, Sigs, Walthers, Uzis, FNs, HKs, etc. Hmmm, which seems more logical. Read this article [url]http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/uk/newsid_1741000/1741336.stm[/url]The cops don't want to be armed because they are afraid that the bad guys would 'escalate'. What a bunch of pussies!
