No Guns Please, We're British
Have you ever noticed that journalists sometimes just make stuff up? If you don't believe us, consider this story from the Press Association, a British wire service:

Labour has been accused of losing control of gun crime as new figures show a sharp rise in armed robberies.

Guns were used in 4,120 robberies last year--a 10% jump--including a 9% rise to 1,439 in the number of street robberies where guns were used.

There was also a rapid and unexplained increase in the number of times householders were confronted in their own homes by armed criminals. Residential firearms robberies show a 46% leap, a record 645 cases in England and Wales--up 204 on the previous year and four times the level recorded in 2000-01.

This can't possibly be true. After all, guns are illegal in Britain!

Americans have the right and advantage of being armed - unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. — James Madison, The Federalist Papers No. 46 at 243-244.
