More evidence that gun control kills. From the Mail Online:

The latest Government figures show that the total number of firearm offences in England and has increased from 5,209 in 1998/99 to 9,865 last year  -  a rise of 89 per cent.

In some parts of the country, the number of offences has increased more than five-fold.

In eighteen police areas, gun crime at least doubled.

    Well Karen, I cannot say it any better than a responder on the boingboing.net site you linked to:

    I think the root cause of the problem here is hands. Anything that can be held in one’s hand can be a weapon.

    Outlaw hands. Problem solved.

    This is so important because I remember how the UK was always set up as the shining example of how gun control could work (even the BOBBIES didn’t have guns), although the rest of us knew that time would tell a different story.

    And regarding banning pint beer glasses, the pubs were just about the only good thing about the UK that is left (the pubs not frequented by “football” hooligans, anyway). Plastic pint glasses–you may as well gulp down a soft drink served in a styrofoam cup dispensed from a vending machine while running to catch to tube–make the herd have absolutely NO decent pleasure while they are slaving on the state’s treadmill. Every day, the United Kingdom gets closer to being 1984′s Oceania.

    Equally interesting is the continued erosion of Brits’ remaining liberties and the unbridled expansion of their surveillance state; every corner has at least a dozen cameras trained in on John Q. Public. I think these efforts have expanded since all private firearms were confiscated by the British government.

    Americans should be watching very closely. Don’t ever give up your firearms. Ever. Support Jews for the Preservation of Firearm Ownership (jpfo.org) and Gun Owners of America (gunowners.org). And buy lots and lots of guns.

    14 cameras per ward. Britain has 14 cameras for every person. Seriously, 14.

    I was thinking of the roaming surveillance van from “V for Vendetta” and then I thought – CRAP, man that was just a stupid movie, not an instruction manual!!! Cut it OUT, Merry Old!!

    Plastic pint glasses are a sign of the Apocalypse, me thinks.

    One thing that I have noticed is that there are a whole lot of earthquakes these days. Big ones too. So what does that have to do with anything? Making money is not all that easy these days but fortunately, I found a trick. It’s a little known secret that is only shared by some top level Internet gurus. There is nothing illegal or shady about it… it’s just kind of secret. The software needs very little babysitting so it’s basically set it up and forget it. This super affiliate push button software is the real thing, so if you’re planning to use it unethically, or use it for scam purposes, this software isn’t for you! It really is as simple as downloading the software and then pushing a button. Basically what it does is bring a stream of free visitors to any website. Don’t even bother trying to figure out how this powerful software works. It’s a pretty amazing piece of software and it just simply… works. Get it before it is gone -> http://tinyurl.com/pbcsites
