Armed robbers held up Tony Blair’s daughter at gunpoint as she strolled with her boyfriend through London on Monday evening.

Kathryn Blair — the third of the former British Prime Minister’s four children — was reportedly unhurt but extremely shaken by the terrifying incident.

British media reports that the 25-year-old lawyer was walking her dog through Ivor Place, in the north-west of the city, at 8:30 p.m. when approached by two men.

*** Nope, nothing to see here. Move along!

Apparently, no 'gun-crimes' ever occurred in UK, after passing the 1997 Fire Arms Act, after UK's 'Columbine:' the Dunblane School Massacre.

Yay! Gun control 'laws' work!

Er...except, when they don't, like all the time:

This deserves a thread of its own- Rick Warren on with Morgan

On with his wife to discuss the suicide of their son by a gun he bought on the internet, Rick Warren, pastor and author, accuses an unknown man of being a predator, without knowing his motives, and then, "forgives him", for what he could not have known.

They both knew he had the gun for a month, knew his intentions, and did nothing more than plead with him not to; but how would, or could, the seller have known that was their son's purpose for purchasing it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPQXJs9lSQs

BBC: Gun Crime Up Despite Ban

A new study suggests the use of handguns in crime rose by 40% in the two years after the weapons were banned.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/1440764.stm

curious as to more recent stats

So a 40% jump is significant, however I'm not sure this isn't cherry picking for ideal statistics. I noticed the article you referenced was from 2001 and though, "geez that's pretty old, I wonder if more recent stats reinforce or discredit this 40% claim."

After a quick google search, it seems that there is some agreement and also counter to the claim. 1st - England was already experiencing a steady increase in gun crimes dating back to the 70's. For some reason in the mid-90's they had significant reductions (before the hand gun ban) and then after the ban returned to the trend line one would have expected looking at the data from the 70's & 80's.

Then after a peak in 05-06 they have had significant reductions in gun crime similar to the deviation from trend seen in the 90's.

Google "UK gun crime stats" to see what I mean, one graph that covered several decades ago until recently is a bit down on this page: http://letsgist.com/why-british-police-dont-have-guns/#sthas...

scroll down a ways on this site to see just the more recent data ('99-09): http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/markeaston/2010/01/c...

In all, I'd say claiming a 40% increase is siting a bit of a statistical aberration or a perhaps a temporary effect that corrects over time.

Not that I'm in support of banning guns or anything. I just don't think that siting decade old stats from UK over a short 2 year interval will be sufficient to convince even slightly competent individuals to change to our position.

indeed, but

what are facts, to propagandist whores like Red Coat Groom of the Stool Piers?

LOL

that said, as much as I love my Briton brethren, I'm getting sick and tired of 'American' MSM hiring all these English accented pressitutes to lecture Americans ON American TV, on what America 'should' be, PRECISELY because, to their core brainwashed drone, zombie, sheeple regular audience, anything spoken IN English accent somehow seem to lend an automatic air of authority and sophistication, even though, you'd still be an idiot, if your name is Piers Moron, regardless of whether you speak with an English accent, or not.

LOL!

But seriously, in what other country, can you have a foreigner lecturing his host countrymen what THEIR way of life SHOULD be? Worse, lecture them in PrimeTime hour, everyday, no less?

Everything's so Topy Turvy!
