And another thing ...

... I heard the guy from GOA who has been on Piers Morgan say that Morgan keeps trying to make the point that UK murder rates are low and that they put in strong gun ban a decade ago because of a school shooting.

But what he does NOT say is that the UK murder rate was low BEFORE that gun ban, and that it is roughly the same now as before.

Also, although the UK murder rate is lower than the US, the violent crime rate in the UK is amoung the HIGHEST IN THE WORLD ... only THREE COUNTRIES IN THE WORLD have a higher violent crime rate than UK.

And while the UK murder rate is lower than US, it is HIGHER than Switzerland, which has MANDATORY gun ownership in ALL homes (all adult males).
