    Thank you Tommy Tainant for bringing this article to my attention.....

    From a Czech warehouse to a street near you: the journey of a gun

    Much of the debate surrounding the UK’s rise in violent offences has concentrated on knife crime. Yet running quietly parallel to the discourse on reducing knife use, senior police officers warn that many of the metrics measuring firearms are moving the same way.


    Recorded firearm offences in England and Wales rose nearly a quarter to 6,375 offences last year, while the number of people shot dead increased by a fifth. Ballistics intelligence has mapped the highest number of firearm discharge incidents for five years; the number of weapons seized suggests the volume of firearms on Britain’s streets is at its highest in almost a decade. One reason, say experts, is traceable to eastern Europe and outlets like the one next door to Hlučín’s sports bar.

    One constant in the perpetually evolving ecosystem of crime is the gun itself. The more lethal the weapon, the higher its owner’s status, and the acquisition of a handgun that can fire rapidly is a shared ambition among violent criminals. “There’s a genuine status in the type of firearm as much as the firearm itself,” says Helen Poole, a firearms expert at Northampton University. The latest intelligence assessment estimates there are 750 organised crime groups and urban street gangs “involved with guns” in the UK. This despite the fact that the country has some of the world’s most stringent gun laws, which means it requires ingenuity to obtain potent guns, along with an eye for spotting new opportunities.
    --------

    Ultimately what we have are teenagers buying prohibited weapons for €100-plus, converting them into lethal barrelled weapons and then walking around the streets shooting people.

    “You don’t need to be wholly sophisticated to do this, that’s the risk. This is clearly an evolution and we are constantly having to deal with the threat that these guns pose.”

    Ah yes, nothing like a gun free country, where all the legal citizens arent allowed to carry a weapon so are like the Jews of Adolph Hitler's time. Oh yeah, the criminals can get guns as they always seem to find a way, thus having innocent people gunned down. It isnt a statistic, it is the slow culling of the human race through the New World Order.

    Its not a problem dickhead. It actually shows that we control these things .In the UK we send gun dealers to jail Imagine how bad it would be if people could buy their guns in the supermarket. Thats right we dont have to imagine. We can see it unfolding in gun crazy America.

    You can't buy guns in supermarkets dipshit.....and as with guns, if your law enforcement stops 10 at the border another 100 slipped through......

    You have been lucky.....luck does not show your gun control works.

    You know 2aguy, what you just said sounded like our border problem with Radical Islam. Law enforcement stops 100, but all it takes is that 1 asshole with a gun or bomb, and many innocent people have their day ruined.. Tommy the twit, is a Radical Muslim lover, which is why he always bad mouths the US with our weapons...

    I have never met a weapon, I didnt like, unlike many high and righteous Brits, who thought they were so superior. I always have to remind them about, how we fucking kicked their asses, not once, but twice....And then had to save it twice...

    Britian has never been gun free. Guns are becoming a problem because there are now more guns in Britain than ever before. Complacency is dangerous.

    Wrong....guns are a problem because only the criminals have them. Guns are essentially banned for anyone but the rich and connected.....if you own one of the few bird hunting shotguns allowed, you can't even have it accessible for self defense. Criminals....get all the guns they need.

    And you did miss it..... gun murder in Britain has always been low, long before they took guns away from law abiding people...... but gun crime...is going up, which means criminals are getting more guns after banning them, they just don't use them to commit murder....rape, robbery and torture...sure thing, they just don't cross that line into murder...
