The Chinese flu ......... teens in England are stabbing and shooting each other.........

So.....how is it possible, during a lockdown for the Chinese Flu, that shootings are going up.....considering they have extreme gun control laws in Britain.......anyone care to explain how that is possible?


There has been an explosion in the number of street stabbings and shootings in England since the beginning of lockdown, despite police claiming the measures have driven down serious violence.
-------
In Birmingham, a city with a well-deserved reputation for high gun crime, there has been a flurry of shootings and stabbings involving teenagers over the last fortnight. According to one youth crime expert, this has been sparked by boredom and lockdown-fuelled social media beefs.


Can any anti-gun extremist explain how it is possible that teens under lockdown in a country with extreme gun control...an island......have access to guns to shoot each other?

You are constantly whining about shootings in England when their gun violence is a tiny fraction of ours, and we should be doing what they are doing. Was somebody from England mean to you as you grew up?

And you don't understand anything about what drives gun crime and gun murder in either country. You hate guns, you want them banned. That is a stupid response to a problem that has nothing to do with normal people who own and carry guns....as is shown in England where they have extreme gun control and they have an ocean protecting their border.

Our gun problem in this country is a direct result stemming from the policies of the democrat party in the cities they control.....they release violent, repeat gun offenders over and over again. It is those offenders who commit gun crime, so targeting normal gun owners accomplishes nothing if you want to lower gun crime in our country.

They are a very resilient people, even with Covid-19. You just can't keep a good Britt down, without a gun or a knife.

Your article only quotes two stats which detail a drop in crime. The rest is anecdotal. Please quote and quantify the "rise".

It's not my article, it is a report from a VICE.........

And again.......how is it that you have this increase in shootings in a country where guns are illegal....for criminals.......? And citizens?

The UK has its own set of problems. We Americans need to concentrate on ours. Someone needs to explain why armed hoodlums are allowed in a state's capitol building here in the U.S.

Erm, you do know that the gun shown in the article (Crossman C11) is a CO2 powered BB gun, basically a toy.

Also the article is unsourced and full of unsubstantiated assertions. Another non story. Next?

Oh, to answer your question once again (I seem to do this time, after time, after time), our Right wing governments have cut both the Police and youth/social services down to the bone, so causing disadvantaged youth to join gangs in lieu of there being any alternatives available to them. Thanks Conservatives.

Oh, it's not the "Chinese Flu", never has been, unless you are a Trumptard, as Americans like to call them.

what armed hoodlums.....? It is legal to carry those guns and they are not using them for crime. This is our problem...you can't tell good guys from bad guys, so you keep releasing bad guys from prison.

They have made those cuts because you can't sustain your welfare state....and if it wasn't for the U.S. your welfare state would have collapsed decades ago.

These bimbos obviously are hoodlums. We don't need uncivilized thugs in this country. Why do they have to display their sexual insecurities in public? Why are they so rude. This is a deliberate attempt at intimidation by thugs.

Carefull, they'll start quoting their "right" to intimidate elected officials, diguising their actions as "free speech".

The 2nd amendment. You are welcome. :)
In reality every free American should be able to carry whatever they want, wherever they want, whenever they want.

Some states have enacted garbage laws that contradict the 2nd amendment and people have put up with it for too long of a time.
Decent people on the poorer side of town should be able to protect themselves just as much as anyone else.
All the restrictions are aimed at targeting those people.

I wonder if the right-wingers would be so adamant about "freedom" and the right to "free speech" if this crowd was more ethnically mixed and/or gathered in support of the governor.

Moron, the crowd at the gun rights rally in Dallas was ethnically mixed as are all the NRA conventions, you dope........freedom is freedom, and only racists like you want to use race to divide people...

And yet....dipshit....all those guns, and rifles.....and not one shot was fired....you moron. Our gun issue in the states is due to the democrat party, releasing violent gun criminals with multiple felony convictions back onto our streets......that is our problem, not the people at that rally who did not fire one shot with all those guns...
