Gun Crime Increases After Guns Are Banned??? UNPOSSIBLE!!
A: A place like Missouri, Florida or Texas that allows it's citizens to carry firearms for self defense and you don't know who may be packing more heat than you...
B: A known "Gun-Free Zone" like Chicago, Washington, D.C., or England that is governed by GFP's who think, "If we make guns illegal, that will stop crime because criminals will obey the gun laws..."?
Gun crimes in England have almost doubled since 1997, when a ban on firearms began.
According to the Sunday Times of London, crimes in which guns were used numbered 4,671 in 2005-06.
Australia also saw a similar increase in gun crimes after making private ownership of firearms illegal, thus PROVING the old bumper sticker wisdom, "When you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns." correct and prophetic.
Also, government officials report that most gun crime is committed by children and teenagers under 18 years old.
David Davis, the shadow home secretary, told the Telegraph: "What this shows is that the majority of these crimes are committed by youngsters under 18."
In the dictionary under "Redundant", it says, "See: Redundant".
It is my opinion that things like this are caused by a lack of proper parenting. I never considered going out and knocking over a liquor store or mugging someone because I knew that if I had even thought about it my Dad would have kicked my ass.
While I am against the government sticking it's nose into my life, there are some things that are too important to be left to unqualified idiots. And bringing another human being into the world is one of them. There should be a basic, minimum requirement that prospective parents should have to meet to get a permit to have children.
IQ, common sense, time available for proper parenting, knowing the difference between right and wrong, things like that should be tested in prospective parents. I know that the government is severely lacking in those qualities and would be a poor judge, but like so many other things, there could be a private entity that would do it better.
"The government's policy has failed with the group most responsible for this increase in crime.
"...the group most responsible for this increase in crime."??? Surely you don't mean the government that passed a gun ban that allows criminals to prey upon a disarmed populace without fear of getting their asses blown away?? Nope, that couldn't be it. That makes too much sense.
It is long past time the Government stopped believing its own propaganda, and took measures to get a grip."
Of course this doesn't mean common sense has broken out and some M'sP are saying, "Well, shit!! The gun ban ain't working worth a damn. Maybe we should let Joe Limey to carry a hogleg to discourage some yob from inflicting bodily harm and relieving him of his hard earned money."
Nope, what it means is they are gonna start outreach programs, midnight basketball, and counselors and other ways of pissing away tax money for these poor, misguided children to work out their feelings of hostility because Mommy and Daddy didn't love them enough.
I got a counseling program for these animals and their so-called parents... Wall To Wall Counseling. Pound the shit outta the kids for committing the crime and their parents for fucking off on the job. A few of these counseling sessions broadcast on the BBC and word will spread that maybe it ain't such a good idea to commit a crime or to be a fuck off parent.
I also have a counseling program for potential victims... Arm them and teach them how to properly employ firearms in self defense. A few stories of Yob X trying to mug Granny Y equals Result Z - Two center mass, one between the eyes, and some lovely toe jewelry from the morgue as a parting gift, will put the fear of Mssr's Colt, Smith, Wesson, and Beretta in the souls of potential criminals.
Remember kids, Gun Control is not about guns, it's about CONTROL.
