Any excuse to demand more gun control.
I would think that it would be easier to smuggle weapons across the English channel than across the Atlantic. The article does mention that there are more guns available in the European black market than there are legit guns. Apparently, the old saying "when guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns" seems to hold true. Anyway, the article blames us for the UK violence issues instead of the outlaws in their own country.
