Gun related. That doesn't happen very often.

Not in Cumbria it doesn't.

London or Birmingham maybe, but not where this was.

Police are saying that the suspect is still on the loose.

oh isnt it against the law to have guns in the UK? hmmm...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 419649



Reminds me of the fact that "Carbine Williams" who was doing time for killing a federal agent in a gun battle at his still, covertly made and perfected the M1 Carbine[a damned sweet little battle rifle]while locked up in the 1930s. Where there is a will, there is a way.




But we don't want you brits to know that

Interesting.

It's not all that hard for people to get guns here,even though they are illegal. Also you can still get shotguns legally.

Yes; which is pretty much why we get this kind of thing very rarely - unlike you morons in the states who think guns are more socially acceptable than tits!

Reminds me that a man went bonkers about 3/4 mile west of me 30 years ago. Lucky for us he went the other way, killed two and wounded another in two miles before a fellow got him with a single "lucky" 50 yard headshot with a 38 revolver.
