    Strict gun control works!

    The latest numbers are in, and Britain's strict gun control is absolutely effective in reducing violent crime.

    And by "gun control" I mean not counting any more than five criminal acts per victim.

    And by "absolutely effective" I mean does nothing whatsoever.

    Interesting read that won't surprise anyone here: http://news.independent.co.uk/uk/cri...cle2710596.ece

    "Violent crime is 82 per cent higher at 4.4 million offences compared with 2.4 million in the BCS, the survey claims, including a 156 per cent rise in " acquaintance violence" from 817,000 incidents to 2.1 million."
    Gun control works ... just point to the U.K. and it's wonderful record, since banning guns from citizens. Yup, that'll do it.

    They did the same thing in Maryland last year's election.

    Baltimore City "Cooked the Books" when it came to the huge amount of murders there. Just to get a few pukes re elected. The FBI is currently investigating that city's government.

    The British government is lying to the people. I'm shocked!!!

    It's a lot easier to stick with a policy that doesn't work and lie about it than to admit your mistake and do something positive about the problem.

    Actually, gun control is working very well in Britain. It never was about guns; it is, was, and always will be about control.

    There is a big difference too in the "Homicide Rate" and the "Murder Rate." The Homicide Rate will include all fatalities, whether it was a burgular killed in a home invasion or a murder victim. In some counts it also includes BGs killed by the police. The pro-control group throw these numbers around like they are the same thing.
