Here are three shootings in Britain THAT DID NOT HAPPEN because guns are illegal there, we don't hear about shootings there, and it just does not happen there, only here:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/manchester/6617697.stm

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/berkshire/6618935.stm

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/sussex/6614427.stm

These are just the crimes in a two day span that made the BBC news, and that I could find.

The BBC are vehemently anti-gun (and also anti-Amercian, anti-Israel and anti-religion while we're at it). I'm not sure the best place to look for gun crime stories in the UK - perhaps the Daily Telegraph or the Daily Mail - these papers have comments sections which, unlike the BBC, are not quite so censored to conform with their liberal views. You'll also get impartial views from readers about the crime rates and police responses. The BBC, being something of a government institution, is more likely to sweep the "reality" under the carpet.

I think, what I'm trying to get across, is that there's a lot more gun crime in Britain than the government and anti-gun media will have you believe.

Yes that is what I am saying too.  When the BBC reports three shootings in two days, you know the problem is much worse than that.

The truth is shootings and gun crime there are very high, but it is not in anyone's best interest to admit the truth.

And a certain segment of our population eat the falsehood right up.
