"Blair to hold summit on gun crime"


Anonymous Anonymous said...

I don't find it at all surprising that PM Blair thinks that guns, not violent felons, are the root cause of all violent crime in England. Sadly, he made the typical leftist, big nanny-state government assumptions that all guns, legal or illegal, are evil in and of themselves; and that simply passing laws against gun ownership will magically make them vanish. Also, note the lack of mention that violent and property crime in Great Britain have soared since gun confiscation took place - doesn't fit the media template, I suppose.

Didn't someone once say the definition of insanity is to try the same thing over and over again and expect different results?

Looks like they might speed up the ban on replica firearms - and they are considering applying the 5 year prison sentence for firearms possession down to include 16 year olds and over. Some advisers aren't pleased with the latter decision, fearing that criminals might be tempted to hold shoot outs when cornered by police rather than face such a sentence.

They don't appear to be too concerned with the safety of British citizens faced by armed criminals out of prison though.
