    Here...I have posted this before......

    Crime rise is biggest in a decade, ONS figures show

    Ministers will also be concerned that the country is becoming increasingly violent in nature, with gun crime rising 23% to 6,375 offences, largely driven by an increase in the use of handguns.

    Gun crime in London increases by 42% - BBC News

    Gun crime offences in London surged by 42% in the last year, according to official statistics.

    Top trauma surgeon reveals shocking extent of London’s gun crime

    A leading trauma surgeon has told how the number of patients treated for gunshot injuries at a major London hospital has doubled in the last five years.

    ----

    He said the hospital’s major trauma centre had seen a bigger rise in gunshot injuries compared to knife wounds and that the average age of victims was getting younger.

    -----

    Last year, gun crime offences in London increased for a third year running and by 42 per cent, from 1,793 offences in 2015/16 to 2,544 offences in 2016/17. Police have seized 635 guns off the streets so far this year.

    Dr Griffiths, who also teaches medical students, said: “Our numbers of victims of gun injury have doubled [since 2012]. Gunshot injuries represent about 2.5 per cent of our penetrating trauma.

    -----

    Dr Griffiths said the average age of gun crime victims needing treatment at the hospital had decreased from 25 to the mid to late teens since 2012.

    He added that medics at the Barts Health hospital’s major trauma centre in Whitechapel had seen a bigger rise in patients with gun injuries rather than knife wounds and that most were caused by pistols or shotguns.

    Met Police commander Jim Stokley, who was also invited to speak at the meeting, said that handguns and shotguns were the weapons of choice and that 46 per cent of London’s gun crime discharges were gang-related.

    He said: “We believe that a lot of it is associated with the drugs trade, and by that I mean people dealing drugs at street level and disagreements between different gangs.”

    I'm sure you think that is what will happen, but until then, it's just more crazy crap from a RWNJ gun nut.

    Criminals prefer using guns in 'gun-free' areas because they know their law abiding victims can't shoot back.

    Those aren't the results.......that isn't even a part of the whole story after Britain banned guns.....here is the truth, the facts and the reality.....

    Culture of violence: Gun crime goes up by 89% in a decade | Daily Mail Online

    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.

    As soon as their numbers increase to six times their current rate, their problem will be comparable to ours. We are doing something terribly wrong. We should copy them as much as possible

    Their daily violence rates are more than ours...and their teenagers are not becoming the shooters.....they have nothing to stop their violent criminals...they are where we were in the early 1960s......and when they start committing murder, they won't be able to stop them....

    Come back when you have more than your imagination and gun nut rhetoric to back that up.
