    UK Shooting spree.

    12 dead in U.K. shooting rampage - Europe- msnbc.com


    "SEASCALE, England - A taxi driver drove his vehicle on a shooting spree across a tranquil stretch of northwest England on Wednesday, killing 12 people and wounding 25 others before shooting himself, officials said.

    The rampage in the county of Cumbria was Britain's deadliest mass shooting since 1996 and it jolted a country where handguns are banned and multiple shootings rare.

    The body of the suspected gunman, 52-year-old Derrick Bird, was found in woods near Boot, a hamlet popular with hikers and vacationers in England's hilly, scenic Lake District. Police said two weapons were recovered from the scene."

    ** Story continues on the website**


    Life is cheap to many people now days. Its enough of a tradegy that people died, but its more of a tragedy that their government denies them the right to protect themselves. Textbook example as to why banning firearms just doesnt work.

    EDIT- NBC Says 12 dead, other sources say 5...

    Revised the post. NBC says 12 dead, other sources saying 5. Either way a horrible thing.

    Gun Control is supposed to stop this kind of thing. Not intended to be funny. It's a shame the people didn't even have a chance to defend themselves.

    From the way this sounds, I don't think anyone would have had a chance at self defense. Random dude pulls up in a car, shoots people w/ shotgun/rifle, drives away to a totally different place....
