    Ministers 'covered up' gun crime
    David Leppard

    THE government was accused yesterday of covering up the full extent of the gun crime epidemic sweeping Britain, after official figures showed that gun-related killings and injuries had risen more than fourfold since 1998.

    I saw this before. Who'd have thought their handgun ban would be ineffective. :rolleyes:

    That's for me to know and not you!
    I doubt this will affect their gun laws anymore considering they basically cannot own guns without a great deal of hassle now. But it will definetly make a win for our side since it will show that the GUN FREE utopia that is supposedly Britain is not much more than a facade.

    Every single gun free zone has proven to be a killing zone instead. So this news is not news.

    It's like putting up a sign that says, "Hey Criminals! Nobody will resist you Here!"

    I want a neutral drop-off zone for violent criminals. I don't care what weapon they use -- I want them off the street!

    They lie in Britain, too?

    Apparently the anti-gun crowd in the UK is just as dishonest as they are over here. What a shocker.

    I've asked this for decades: If the case against the private ownership of firearms is so strong and sensible, why do the antis have to fudge statistics, falsify the results of countless studies, and just plain make up things to support it? If they'r right, why do they have to lie so much?
