    Gun crimes have double since handgun ban in 1997.

    Don't forget to read the comments from the UK citizens.

    But that can't be! In the utopia that those idiots bought into no guns equals no crimes!

    Now let's see how the Brady Bunch tries to spin this one.

    The crime rate in the UK is one of the things I care the least about because they made their own bed, the other is Global warming because Al Gore Makes a living talking about it ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Britain outlawed the possession of handguns in 1997 in response to the massacre of 16 children, and the country has one of the lowest gun homicide rates in the world -- 0.04 slayings per 100,000 people, according to the Geneva-based Small Arms Survey for 2004. The rate is roughly 100 times higher in the U.S.: 3.42 gun murders per 100,000 people.

    What price, freedom?

    They are essentially a police state.

    In London alone - over the May Bank Holiday weekend (27-29th May 06) - Police recorded over 50 knife attacks.....more than 50 knife attacks in London
    during the weekend.

    BBC National News

    Many criminologists now believe that people carrying a knife is a bigger threat than people carrying guns - this is based on a 60% increase in recorded incidents of knife carrying during the 6 years between 1999 - 2004. 60% increase in recorded knife carrying incidents in just 6 years


    The criminal element is resourceful. If they don't have guns.....then they'll use knives.

    See the link for the whole story.

    Maybe OJ Simpson should move to the UK, he's pretty good with a knife as I recall ... To bad he hasn't taken his knife to a gun fight yet ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    Read the story in yesterday's local paper.

    Alpine, the final sentence, "spin" blamed it on easy access to american guns. So you see the Brady's will blame this increase in UK on us evil american gun owners, wait and see.
