Maybe the sequel should be "[u]Guns: A Day in the Death of Britian[/u]" Britain banned all handguns in 1997, and fatal shootings have been on the rise ever since. More than three million illegally held firearms are in circulation in Britain - double the number believed to have been held 10 years ago - and criminals are more willing than ever to use them. In the two years following Britian's 1997 ban on handguns, crimes involving handguns increased 40%. Between 1997 and 1999 there were 429 murders in the London, the highest two-year figure for more than 10 years. At least 100 of them were drug-related; nearly two-thirds of those involved firearms. In Britain, one in three criminals under the age of 25 owns or has access to a firearm.
