    Their criminals have guns...they just don't commit murder with them.....

    Now...since this criminal has a gun, which British gun law kept him from going to a school, a theater or a mall, and shooting a bunch of people?

    Which British gun law kept this criminal with a gun from shooting this man in the back of the head, instead of in 3 places least likely to cause death....?

    Homeless man repeatedly shot after attending children’s birthday party

    The 34-year-old man, who is well known to the local community, was left with serious injuries after the "deplorable" incident in Hackney.

    He was in Daubeney Fields shortly after midnight when he was approached by a suspect from behind.


    The suspect shot him three times, in the arm, left hip and right calf, before running off, police said.

    The victim was able to make his way out of the park and to a nearby housing estate where he was given first aid and paramedics were called.

    Get a real job. You seriously suck at defending guns.

    When you can't figure out that guns kill people they don't protect people no one can help you. No guns mean no guns deaths. In the US that is 30,000 people a year. To the NRA and the gun nuts who love the things that make them feel like real men that is an acceptable cost. Since the dead are mostly Trump voters or future Trump voters I say have at it. You won't be missed.

    It means more knife deaths.

    Seriously, I've never seen any stats that show Britain to be less violent than the USA. "Gun murder" is hardly a good way to measure how safe a country is.

    The chart above shows only homicide rate. You must take in all types of violence when determining if a country is safer with or without guns. There are many other types of violence than murder. There also are problems when two countries report the same crime in different ways. Not all countries account for violent crimes the same way. If there is no injury, some countries don't count that as a violent crime, when another country might whether there is injury or not.

    Even Britain says Britain has a higher violent crime rate than America:

    Guns in the hands of law abiding people do not mean more gun deaths

    but you cannot seem to understand that
