Yep......apparently they don't include shootings as gun crimes......Good thing the banned guns? And yesterday one poster who will not be named...(candycorn) said that getting rid of guns would lower the murder rate....? Murder rate up 44% last year in Britain... London murder rates surged by 44 per cent last year and knife crime soared in capital, new figures show While gun crime was down 4.6 per cent, shootings rose by 23.3 per cent — up 313 to 386 offences. Also... There were 30,609 violent muggings in the last 12 months, a rise of 36 per cent and the equivalent of 83 a day.
