Banning Guns in Britain

Mark Styen has an excellent editorial in The Telegraph regarding the effect of a total gun ban in Britain and recent gang violence there. I think this goes to show the fallacy in the argument that banning guns would make America safer from violent crime.

Meanwhile, America's traditionally high and England and Wales's traditionally low murder rates are remorselessly converging. In 1981, the US rate was nine times higher than the English. By 1995, it was six times. Last year, it was down to 3.5. Given that US statistics, unlike the British ones, include manslaughter and other lesser charges, the real rate is much closer. New York has just recorded the lowest murder rate since the 19th century. I'll bet that in the next two years London's murder rate overtakes it.

Its awfully nice that Her Majesty's realm has to deal with this bad policy for us so that we rebels can watch and learn.
