With a violent crime rate higher than any other European nation, it boggles the mind how this nation has yet to see what is so very plain and simple to the rest of the word, and how they can solve their crime problem overnight.
Gun control in Britain passed in stages, beginning just after World War I and continuing in a reactionary fashion with increasing strictness through the 1990s.
When the final stage arrived in 1997, and virtually all handguns were banned via the Firearms Act, the promise was a reduction in crime and greater safety for the British people. But the result was the emergence of Britain as the “most violent country in Europe.”
The Firearm Act of 1997 was passed while emotions ran high. Gun control proponents push for an all-out ban on private gun ownership, in the much the same way that Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) reacted to the heinous crime at Sandy Hook Elementary by trying to ban approximately 150 different guns.
In 2009, twelve years after the Firearms Act of 1997 was passed, Daily Mail Online reported that Britain was “the most violent country in Europe.” They also reported that Britain’s home figures showed “the UK [had] a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and South Africa.”

Of course, after you’ve been robbed, gutted and left to die in the filth of some rancid alley in London, you can then die comforted in the knowledge that at least you weren’t killed by a gun. Because that would be really bad.
Back in February, a Buffalo, N.Y. community activist who pushed for a highly restrictive 2013 gun control law was arrested for — wait for it — carrying a gun illegally at a public elementary school.
The wheels of criminal justice have now slowly, slowly churned to completion. And wouldn’t you know it? The judge in the case has now found it in his heart to give the heat-packing activist, Dwayne Ferguson, a generously light sentence.
On Monday, Judge John L. Michalek sentenced Ferguson to 100 hours of community service and a conditional discharge, according to local CBS affiliate WIVB. Michalek also sternly ordered Ferguson to keep his nose clean.
Meanwhile, gun-rights activist Mark Witaschek, was convicted of attempted possession of unlawful ammunition, fined and forced to register in the Gun Offenders Registry for having one spent shell casing in his own home.
A mob of Wisconsin teens attempted to rob a group of adults in Milwaukee only to be shot at by a West Allis man carrying a concealed carry weapon.
Police say that a group of teens attempted to rob a group of adults when one of the men pulled out his gun and began shooting at the teens.
He fatally shot one of the robbers, a 15-year-old known gang member who was already the victim of another non-fatal shooting on August 1.
The teen had previously been charged with armed robbery, auto theft, theft, and fleeing.
Police have arrested another two 14-year-old males, a 16-year-old male, a 17-year-old female, and an 18-year-old male.
Police say this particular group is responsible for multiple armed robberies that have recently hit Milwaukee. Police say the group may be responsible for “dozens” of robberies over just the past three days.
