    when you eliminate guns-they use a hammer!

    BRISTOL June 17: A thug who attacked a bus passenger with a claw hammer in broad daylight then told the driver ‘sorry about that, drive’ has been jailed for three years after the sickening CCTV footage of the incident was played to a judge.
    this is just more proof that you can't stop someone from robbing just because you take away their guns; they are going to do it with whatever they got

    They allow just any body to purchase a claw hammer?

    They say when your only tool is a hammer, everything looks pretty much like a nail...

    If they got rid of the "claw" part, they'd sound a lot less scary. Thinking of it though, I think I'd rather be shot. Yikes!

    He only got three years for robbing with a hammer. No doubt would've gotten life at hard labor if he had used one of those evil guns.

    I though the same thing, three years for what would be considered arm robbery this side of the pond

    Just have the government take everything away from everyone and there won't be anything left for weapons, except sticks and stones. So you'd better have them burn all of the wood and take all of the stone and drop it into the sea. Then won't life be just wonderful with no shelter, no food, nothing. Oops, I think that just exposed the flaw in my idea.

    My niece who was attending college in San Diego said a lot of the students were routinely carrying hammers for self-defense. I was wondering where that came from. Let's see, Books, homework, bus pass, hammer--ready to go!

    Guess no one died in all the biblical wars millions of years ago......definitely no guns then. I have often said, take all guns away and crime will get super brutal. You will see more of men's barbaric side.
