    Gun crime is even a problem in Britain...but the funny thing is, they banned and confiscated their guns...and their gun crime rate just keeps going up...

    Shots fired at house after arson attack at same property

    Shots were fired at a house after an apparent arson attack on the same property in Dingle.

    The property in Grafton Street was shot at just after 11.30pm on Tuesday and a ground floor window was damaged in the fire.

    Police descended on the scene, where they remained this morning, and found damage “consistent with a firearms discharge” to a ground floor window alongside a discarded bottle of “accelerant.”

    Actually they banned handguns, but you can still have a hunting rifle. So they have about 10 people killed with guns a year...

    Funny how gun control nuts look at Britain as a success of gun control, but completely ignore that in Europe Lithuania has the lowest gun ownership rate, and Lithuania is #1 in suicide, and #2 in murder in Europe.

    Actually, their gun crime rate is going up....as my other thread points out....and the shooters.....went from their mid twenties, and are now teenagers....getting guns, shooting each other, on an island that banned and confiscated guns....and they are using handguns.....not hunting rifles...

    It's the rule of law that keeps us free not guns... Stupid GOP b*******. We would be a hell of a lot better off with British laws on guns.
