    People always tote Britain as having a well working handgun ban. Guess not.

    Perhaps a law should be passed against armed robbery. Oh, wait...

    Maybe if they ban them again, this kind of thing wouldn't happen.

    Are people still being prosecuted over there for protecting their houses and defending themselves ?

    9mmfan and CoRoMo, you guys made me smile.

    It is hard to believe that those two criminals had no respect for British gun laws!

    Obviously such a Very Important Person's Offspring needs a bodyguard. At taxpayer expense, of course.

    "... In other news, so did 137 other Britons who aren't important enough to mention here. Now for the cricket scores ..."

    Obviously that street isn't a gun-free zone. If it were, this would have been prevented.

    I'm bookmarking this article. Gun bans don't disarm the bad guys. Period.

    Probably a right wing political operative working behind the scenes to promote handguns as a means of self protection.

    How could this be possible? Aren't there CCTV cameras there to protect her?

    Well It is OBVIOUS the UK government needs to crack down on the Olympic Shooters .22s! The Olympic team keeps their guns in France and the Olympic contestants go to France to practice but we know they must somehow be responsible for these gun crimes!!!!

    Yes, 'sensible' gun legislation is right around the corner and they will do it for the children!

    I hear George Zimmerman may be in the market for some new digs. Maybe he could run for HOA president.

    Perhaps if she were armed with a shotgun (Still allowed under British law) and fired it randomly in the air as suggested by VP Biden, this whole incident could have been avoided.
