    New Report: UK Crime Statistics Fudged to Justify Gun Ban

    How many times have we heard Piers Morgan rant and rave about crime rates in his home country? He claims gun violence is virtually nonexistent thanks to the Brits doing the “responsible” thing and taking everyone’s guns away in 1997. Sure, there was an acknowledged, initial spike in crime shortly thereafter, but then it began to fall and has since plummeted. Or so they say.

    It turns out that they have an entire bureaucracy over there devoted not to fighting crime, but fighting crime statistics. Their job is to determine which crimes get recorded as crimes and which get categorized as something else, which ends up not affecting the overall crime rate.

    All I know is that I was 14 when "the ban" came and don't recall the stories about gang shootings, armed robberies or IRA killings ever decreasing.

    Well there are 300000000 guns in the US. If the BG's own 10% of them that leaves 30000000 guns in hand after the ban & confiscation.
    Need I say more....

    How surprising. When those pesky facts get in the way of your agenda, you season and marinade them (cook the books). I mean, what other option is there? Surely, one can't admit they might have been wrong.

    I

    t's not how far behind the American media is. It's how dishonest the American media has become. The Navyyard is just the most recent example where they intentionally pushed information they never bothered to confirm because it fit their narrative for mass shootings.

    We need to continually use these examples to destroy the credibility of these "news" outfits because even though trust in the media is at all time lows, they still wield a lot of power. Would any prior President survived Fast & Furious given the body count racked up? The media intentionally did little follow up because they are down for the cause and don't want to know more and risk hurting the cause.
