So....gun crime in Britain is getting worse....with shooters opening fire, hitting children and their mothers and shooting up parties....but...they have gun control....right?

A man and two women have sustained gunshot wounds after attackers opened fire on people attending a party in Harlow, Essex.

Essex police said the man, who is in his 50s and from nearby Grays, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries early on Saturday.

Two women in their 20s were taken to hospital with single gunshot wounds, which are not considered to be life-threatening.

Why don't you start doing a thread on every gun shot incident in this country, 2AGuy. This is your country after all. Why do you think we care if there was a shooting in England? Or France?
Let's start hearing about every one of them in this country.
What? Impossible? That's because there are tens of thousands of them a year. You couldn't type fast enough.
And it's because every Tom, Dick and Harriett has a gun for no good reason.

What you don't understand.....you really don't understand a lot.....is that Europe is used by our anti-gun extremists to justify our anti-gun laws.......the fact that gun control does not work in Europe shows it won't work here.....

We already hear about them in this country....what we rarely hear about is the 1.2 million times a year Americans use their legal guns to stop violent rapes, robberies and murders.....or the fact that as more Americans own and carry guns our gun crime rates went down, not up....

Meanwhile....in Europe.....their immigrants are using more guns for more crime....to protect their drug territories...and their gun control laws are not stopping them.

Over the last 27 years, we went from 200 million guns in private hands in the 1990s and 4.7 million people carrying guns for self defense in 1997...to close to 400-600 million guns in private hands and over 18.6 million people carrying guns for self defense in 2018...guess what happened...


-- gun murder down 49%

--gun crime down 75%

--violent crime down 72%


Gun Homicide Rate Down 49% Since 1993 Peak; Public Unaware

Compared with 1993, the peak of U.S. gun homicides, the firearm homicide rate was 49% lower in 2010, and there were fewer deaths, even though the nation’s population grew. The victimization rate for other violent crimes with a firearm—assaults, robberies and sex crimes—was 75% lower in 2011 than in 1993. Violent non-fatal crime victimization overall (with or without a firearm) also is down markedly (72%) over two decades.

yeah, we aren't covering non-events when the whole country is burning down...

(I actually can't find a recent story of a mass shooting in france. We have mass shootings every day in this country, not one every couple of years.)

You mean like the Milwaukee brewery shooting? Legally owned hand guns one with a silencer...


Sorry Old Lady, you fell for his usual stunt that allows him to copy/paste the total BS he posted in post #3; the same BS he posts in every thread he starts. Wait till he starts claimingguns are "flooding" into the UK :talktothehand:

4 people shot in the middle of a street in Britain..........in gun controlled Britain....

A two-year-old boy who was shot in the head survived after the bullet missed a crucial artery by 1mm, his family have revealed, as they appealed for anyone with information on the shooting to come forward.

The toddler was one of four people, including his mother, who were shot in Energen Close, Harlesden, north-west London, on 3 June.


Blah, blah, blah. US leads the world in child gun deaths

We have guns...... and criminals have guns and leave them lying around and their children take them.........

And you assume, as a moron, that your gun deaths are going to stay low as your criminals begin using guns more and more.....that is an ASSumption on your part......

you guys have lived behind the U.S. because of the war, you are now catching up....your criminals are becoming more violent, using guns more often and they don't care who they kill now....

Police struggle to stop flood of firearms into UK

Police and border officials are struggling to stop a rising supply of illegal firearms being smuggled into Britain, a senior police chief has warned.

Chief constable Andy Cooke, the national police lead for serious and organised crime, said law enforcement had seen an increased supply of guns over the past year, and feared that it would continue in 2019

The Guardian has learned that the situation is so serious that the National Crime Agency has taken the rare step of using its legal powers to direct every single police force to step up the fight against illegal guns.

The NCA has used tasking powers to direct greater intelligence about firearms to be gathered by all 43 forces in England and Wales.


Another senior law enforcement official said that “new and clean” weapons were now being used in the majority of shootings, as opposed to guns once being so difficult to obtain that they would be “rented out” to be used in multiple crimes.

Cooke, the Merseyside chief constable, told the Guardian: “We in law enforcement expect the rise in new firearms to continue. We are doing all we can. We are not in a position to stop it anytime soon.


“Law enforcement is more joined up now than before, but the scale of the problem is such that despite a number of excellent firearms seizures, I expect the rise in supply to be a continuing issue.”

The increasing supply of guns belies problems with UK border security and innovations by organised crime gangs. Smugglers have increasingly found new ways and innovative routes to get guns past border defences.


Cooke said that the dynamics of the streets of British cities had changed and that criminals were more willing to use guns: “If they bring them in people will buy them. It’s a kudos thing for organised criminals.”

Simon Brough, head of firearms at the NCA, said: “The majority of guns being used are new, clean firearms ... which indicates a relatively fluid supply.”


He said shotguns were 40% of the total, with an increase in burglaries to try and steal them.

Handguns are the next biggest category, most often smuggled in from overseas, with ferry ports such as Dover being a popular entry point into the UK for organised crime groups:

“We’re doing a lot to fight back against it,” Brough said, adding that compared to other European countries, the availability in the UK was relatively lower.

It's because we have guns. Rather than write a novel to explain which types of guns we have, here's a 5 minute video to explain all, you might be surprised!!

Did they? Point out to me please, where the police said the country was being flooded with illegal firearms? Don't confuse a catchy headline with what was actually said.

BRAVO! Thanks for that. saved me a long essay on the subject :clap:
"Captain Kirk" wannabe here tries to fearmonger to pursue a pro-gun agenda; facts are irrelevant to him, he just has a series of cut and pastes that he regurgitates time after time after time. It's very tedious.

I've been on American forums for some 5 to 6 years so I'm used to American's gaps in Brit knowledge. But there again, us Brits have gaps in American knowledge and thus probably come across as dickheads. But the good thing is, just as long we all remain civil and learn from one another, all's good.

Here....again...and nice dodge.......you guys say that gun control works, this article from the British police say that the supply of illegal guns is rising.....

That means there are more guns entering the country.......

The problem you guys have is you seem to think that your gun crime rates are always going to be static ......... the immigrant gangs controlling the drug trade in Britain are going to show you how you really don't understand crime and illegal activity.
