    Yet more proof of how well gun bans work:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Why is it that the liberals can't seem to figure out that some whackamole bent on killing people WILL find a way regardless of what the law says:rolleyes::rolleyes:

    More proof that the whole "public safety" line that the liberals always use is nothing but a load of BS used to cover the real reason for more gun laws...making it easier for the gov't to take total control and it's always the innocent people of the world that suffer and die so the liberals and progressives can have more power.:mad:

    Good God, what a horrible story.



    Maybe they should ban those evil weapons all over again, maybe LOUDER this time.


    Did you see the armored car robbery in France? It looked like the cops were right there, but those criminals had rifles. They got away.

    It's because all the mental institutions have been deemed inhumane and closed, that's one reason things like this happen.

    Well there's that (wacky people on the loose), and, an unarmed citizenry. Had there been an armed citizen nearby, he could have been stopped before doing so much damage. Then again, it sounded mostly rural.

    So sad.

    With the laws in place over in the UK, this obviously never happened.

    I'm sure that gun can be traced to Mexico and then to the U.S. where it was bought at a gun show. So it's our fault.

    The problem is, is that it sounds like it was done with a shotgun.
    Shotguns aren't on the banned list in Britain........yet.:mad:

    Horrible tragedy. How did gun control stop the guy? It is truly a farce, gun control that is, to think that some nut job won't get their hands on something lethal. This is precisely why we, the law abiding citizens, should have the God given right to own fire arms and protect ourselves from the unstable, the criminal, and the doped up robbers amongst us. I'll bet Tranter could have taken him out, if only he were armed. Gun control doesn't work. TJ

    That was exactly my point. Had the other cabbies been armed (which they should be) with handguns, this would have ended differently. The fact that the people there allowed their government to outlaw concealed carry of handguns, lays a bit of the blame at their feet.

    There was a Brit Lady cop on "Cops," the other night and she had been an LEO in Britain, and now CA. She made the comment that she wouldn't like to go back and be unarmed. Even If 6 or 7 "Bobbies" did show up, they have to brave fire to get their hands on the guy. No way to run a police force. TJ

    Turns out this guy was a 'hobby' shooter. He had one of only 100,000 firearms for legal ownership. How long before that ends? 4 seconds, perhaps?

    Sad situation.

    They don't have any drug dealing, home invading thugs in that country? I remember hearing that London has a high crime rate. Probably another case of reporting only on the legal gun owner going bonkers, but never reporting on the bad guys that kill people with guns on a daily basis.

    I just did the math. The homicide rate for England is 1.6 per 100K, and 5.6 for the U.S. 50Million people in England, and 60million in the UK
    The U.S. is estimated at 308 million at this time, and that does not include those that are here illegally. The U.S. has over six times the number of people that England does, so that means that if England had the same number of people that the U.S. does, it's homicide rate would be 9.6 per 100K.
