Gun Ban UK: After Labor Party Came To Power And Confiscated Firearms, Gun Crime Goes Up 89% In A Decade
Gun crime has almost doubled since Labour came to power as a culture of extreme gang violence has taken hold.

The latest Government figures show that the total number of firearm offences in England and Wales has increased from 5,209 in 1998/99 to 9,865 last year - a rise of 89 per cent.

In some parts of the country, the number of offences has increased more than five-fold.

In eighteen police areas, gun crime at least doubled.

Hmmm, you are on my ignore list, so I suspect that you are either a shill or a retard.....let's analyze this.

Why would the media claim these numbers and be suspect?, wouldn't they claim numbers are dropping as a way to cover the true numbers?

If the MSM was on the take, they would be promoting the gun laws and claiming they are working, which is not what they are doing. I think you fail and will fail to get off my ignore this at this point.

Article is from 2009, and again, is a Daily Mail article. More recent UK figures show gun crime resulting in serious injury or death is now in decline.

Seriously, guns are not a problem in this country. Someone pulls a gun over here usually gets the shit kicked out of them because it's a replica. REAL guns in the UK are not easy to come by. Most are reactivated or things like stolen .22's or shotguns.

Shootings DO happen, not trying to deny that, but they are few and far between and usually met with shock... in the kind of 'where the fuck did he get a gun?!' type.

I guess that the OP is trying to suggest that gun control doesn't work... but in the UK it really has, not that we really had a problem anyway... yes Hungerford and Dunblane, but they were freak events to the extreme.

If you want to make an argument against gun control then you need to pick another example.

hmmm. can you imagine if they banned guns in the US? nearly everybody would be dead, if the current gun-related mortality rate is to be believed

thing is, the UK is VERY VERY different from the US. we never did all 'carry conceal', it was pretty much only the criminals with the guns

the 'confiscation' turned up very few guns, seeing as very few people had a gun to hand over

Well as an example the following is a link detailing gun crime across London... from 2006 to 2011:

[link to www.citizensreportuk.org]

And an interesting article follows below:

[link to www.bbc.co.uk]

Basically arguing that TPTB in the UK are playing up the threat of gun crime, despite it being proven to be in decline. Which matches the Daily Mail (Tory newspaper) angle (or lies) that gun crime is rampant despite the gun control in this country... it's bullshit, like I said.

Well of course, this is to be expected. Anytime government makes more laws it puts more people in position to break those laws.

In regards to gun crimes.. these types of laws outlaw deterrence. Most places, it is already illegal to kill someone in cold blood so really, what the hell do these people (in gov't) think they are doing?

What I am trying to say is that you CANNOT defend your right to bear arms in the US by pointing to some spurious (and seriously politically motivated) newspaper article, that is claiming that despite gun control methods in the UK, gun crime is rising (when it isn't).

We have NEVER had the gun culture or fetishising of guns like you have had in the US. Don't get me wrong, I get the history, I understand where it comes from and why. But you just can't compare the two countries in terms of gun control/culture.

See this is what I don't understand... THIS, that I have bolded... do you truly believe that to be true? We have never had a gun culture in this country, there was no mass turning in of guns.

The city I live in has a BIG crime problem, much like any urban area. Especially with gangs. Yeah people get shot... in the legs or buttocks, with air rifles. Much more likely to get stabbed than mown down with an Uzi or some such.

But hey, don't believe me all you want, I only live here. Believe what the MSM is telling you (again I see Daily Mail and the Telegraph linked)... and no I don't believe much of what the BBC says either (they lied about Syria)... but like I said, I live here, in the UK, in a major city, with a big crime problem... but there's not much shooting going on at all... and certainly no rampages.

Sad thing is I am actually with the US posters on this subject, I understand the importance of the right to bear arms and the fear of gun control measures in the US. But comparing the situation in the UK is just madness really.

Because gun control in the UK does work, and the reason it does is because Britain never had a gun culture to control in the first place. Longbow maybe (joking), but guns? Nope. The gun to the American represents freedom, I get that, but that's not the case over here and never has been.
