    UK Gun Crimes Soar After Gun Ban

    Sunday, August 26, 2007 8:36 PM


    Gun crimes in England have almost doubled since 1997, when a ban on firearms began.

    According to the Sunday Times of London, crimes in which guns were used numbered 4,671 in 2005-06.

    Also, government officials report that most gun crime is committed by children and teenagers under 18 years old.

    David Davis, the shadow home secretary, told the Telegraph: "What this shows is that the majority of these crimes are committed by youngsters under 18.

    "The government's policy has failed with the group most responsible for this increase in crime. It is long past time the Government stopped believing its own propaganda, and took measures to get a grip."

    I have no idea. Maybe the "backup" home secretary that takes the position if something happens to the regular home secretary?

    May I suggest banning guns again? That will surely work.

    Or maybe they can ban people under the age of 18?

    Your facetiousness does nothing to help the situation. It's obvious the Brits should just ban crime. If crime is banned, the criminal swill leave for greener pastures. :roll:
