    That is sad. I read another linked story of a UK shooting. Odd how in the comments, they talk about more punishments and possibly bringing back capital punishment, but no talk of guns. If these same people commented on a crime here in the US it'd probably have everything to do with a gun.

    I guess since guns are banned, they're not willing to acknowledge that they were wrong before about gun bans having any beneficial effect. I realize gun crimes are still rare in your part of the world, but figures show that that was the case long before any gun ban!

    What about the sledge hammer nobody said anything about the guy having a sledge hammer,seriously it doesn't matter how many laws you enact criminals will be able to get guns,the problem with a supposed gunless society is I'm wondering if they thought the guy had a toy gun since real guns are outlawed and he tried to stop the robbery

    You could be right about people thinking its a "Replica"
    The wonderful Labour government banned realistic looking toy guns in 2007 (see below)

    The figures were Manipulated to make it look like De-Act weapons, air pistols and replicas were being used more and more in crime and as normal with this sort of government (democrats) they banned them.
    The poor post office people did not stand a chance as the law does not allow them to protect themselves with any sort of weapon.

    You know it has to be a fictitious report. After all guns are not allowed in the UK (tongue in cheek).
