    Janq - the last link you posted.... I found this in there:

    "Here in America police officers are trigger happy & often shoot unarmed people. The police officers can simply say they felt physically threatend, and get away with it. Arming British police officers is not answer.

    What the Hell is that?! I'd be willing to bet that the person who wrote that isn't even living here. Grrrrrrr. I can't believe a lot of the rubbish in that op-ed column's comments.

    If England has strict gun control ,obviously they have no problem and these reports are false. As we have seen in DC, NYC, and CA, this is the solution to all our problems. All those dead people need to be arrested for impersonating a victim!!

    The real kicker is the graph doesnt show what the levels were before the ban and I bet they'd be pretty constant too. aka the ban did nothing. But since the graph shows nothing before 1998 the point is moot.

    The death penalty , without chance of parole might help deter crime. Good thing they diarmed all the law abiding members of society.

    No death penalty in the UK, most of Europe stopped using capital punishment after WWII.
