Figures for the last 10 years:



There was a brief increase after 1997, but the trend has been downwards.

 The sheeple will not listen. They are so busy w/ their knee jerk (emphasis on jerk) reactions, that they cant see beyond their damn noses.

Keep in mind, there is a different environment here.  There were not as many illegal guns owned by criminals back then, in England, as there are now in the US today.  To ban guns totally would be a bad move.  There are too many criminals, and too many unregistered, stolen, and illegal weapons on our streets.  IF the US wanted to ban guns, they should have done so a VERY long time ago.  If they try it now, it will only help the criminal element...and harm those who wish to protect themselves and their families.

As a proponent of better gun control, I do not want to see all guns banned outright.
I just do not see why an average citizen needs a military grade gun and ammo. At all. There are other guns out that can be used for personal protection and hunting.

You guys.

No one is trying to take your guns. No one is seriously trying to ban all guns.

Your right to own a gun does not supercede my right, or my kid's right to life.

Can we please have a reality based conversation about guns now?

Not my point.

My point is that the claim being made by the OP is factually incorrect (aka "a lie"); or at least so wildly out of context as to be intentionally deceptive.

Crime skyrocketed.  Not gun crime.  Violent crime is higher in England than anywhere else in Europe, outranks us at a rate 8 times higher than ours, and they even outrank Africa, where miniwars are going on.
