Unless you strictly adhere to watching and reading fake news sources, you probably are aware that homicide in London is now at higher rates than New York City. And you know they royally (pun intended) screwed up if homicide in London is now WORSE than in New York City, the home of the Knicks, Mets, Giants, Yankees, Jets… and high crime rates.
Breitbart News made sure to point out a certain history about Great Britain that may help shed some light as to why homicides are now worse in London than in New York City.
According to Breitbart News, the network, back in September of 2014, reported that “gun control had made Britain extremely violent. That gun control was put in place during the 20th century via a relentless, incremental push, which began with laws similar to firearm owner identification cards and background checks and ended with a virtual ban on all handguns.”
They then proceed to quote that September, 2014 article: “Britain began placing restrictions on gun ownership after World War I with the Firearms Act of 1920. The passage was emotionally driven, based in part on the public’s war-weariness and in part on the fear that an increased number of guns – guns from the battlefield – would increase crime.”
Emotionally driven, huh? Now what does that remind me of?
“The Firearms Act of 1920 did not ban guns. Rather, it required that citizens who wanted a gun had to first obtain a certificate from the government,” much akin to some laws in some states, where someone has to get a Fire Owner Identification Card (if you’re in Illinois) or has to be vetted by police (like someone in Massachusetts) or both.
“Thirteen years after the passage of the Firearms Act, British Parliament passed the Firearms and Imitation Firearms Bill, making the possession of a replica gun or a real one equally punishable unless the owner of either could show the lawful purpose for which he had it. This was followed by the Firearms Act of 1937, which author Frank Miniter says ‘extended restrictions to shotguns and granted chief constables the power to add conditions to individual private firearm certificates.’”
“…On July 25 , Breitbart News reported that Massachusetts police were pressing for ‘sole discretion’ on who could own a long gun; they already had such discretion over who could own a handgun. On August 1, they received the power they sought.”
“Britain continued to issue firearm certificates as World War II set in. But by the time the war was over, the gun control mindset had permeated society to a point where self-defense was no longer a valid reason to secure a certificate for gun ownership. Guns were simply for sport or for hunting.”
The article then proceeds to detail some shootings that happened in England that prompted even stricter gun control laws. “In 1987, Michael Ryan shot and killed sixteen people in Hungerford, including his mother. He wounded fourteen others, then killed himself. According to the Library of Congress, Ryan used ‘lawfully owned’ rifles to carry out the attack. Nevertheless, his attack prompted the passage of more laws in the form of the Firearms Act of 1988. This act ‘banned the possession of high-powered self-loading rifles’ and ‘burst-firing weapons,’ and imposed ‘stricter standards for ownership’ to secure a government certificate to own a shotgun.”
“In 1996, Thomas Hamilton walked into an elementary school in Dunblane, Scotland, and shot and killed ‘sixteen small children… and their teacher in the gym before killing himself.’ He brought two rifles and four handguns to carry out the attack. All six guns were legally owned: Hamilton had fully complied with gun control statutes.”
“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 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.”
“Yet the Firearm Act did not ban all guns, ‘but served to essentially prohibit the ownership of handguns in Britain’ and to make the acquisition of certificate to possess a long gun an onerous and time-consuming one.”
Now, what did all of these firearm acts culminate to? In 2009, the Daily Mail reported that Britain was “the most violent country in Europe,” and that it had “a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S.”
On October 21, 2017, Breitbart News reported that “rapes in London were three times higher than in New York City”, and most recently, “homicides in London are higher than homicides in New York City, and the man with a knife is king.”
The multiple firearm acts across the 20th century has led England, and particularly its biggest city, London, to being highly dangerous places for everyone. Safety has gone out the window in England, largely due to the firearm acts. Sure, you could also blame the Muslims taking “refuge” (more like invading) England and bringing their horrible jihadist culture with them.
It’s the combination of those “refugees” and the insane gun control laws that will mark the destruction of Great Britain as we know it. The British government already has exercised more law enforcement muscle against its own citizens if they are deemed “offensive”. So the British government are effectively taking away people’s freedom of speech.
Thus, the people are left defenseless against an oppressive government dictating what they are allowed and not allowed to say or do, are left defenseless against other people who might wish to do them harm and are defenseless against an invading force taking the guise of refugees so that they may eventually turn Great Britain into another Muslim country, all the while the British government is more than happy to allow it so long as they are personally left alone.
I remember years ago, as a high school sophomore, having the opportunity to travel to England with my mother, accompanying her on her business trip. I remember saying to her that I didn’t want to go because “there’s no freedom there”. Honestly, I was simply feeling too lazy to pack a bag and make the trip and came up with that excuse before eventually agreeing to go with her (as well as getting the opportunity to miss a week of school). But I had a point then and that point has only become more significant since then.
The people of England have no freedom. They have no freedom to express themselves or even say a rather offensive joke, knowing that if they do, the government will convict and imprison them. They have no freedom to defend themselves from attackers who wish to simply harm their body at best or kill them at worst. Same goes for sexual attackers who wish to have some sense of “power”.
And they have no freedom to defend themselves from an invading force who wish to utterly destroy their culture and establish their own. Now, don’t misunderstand, I’m not saying that they should outright kill the Muslim “refugees”. What I’m saying is that, once there’s enough Muslims to force a cultural change to that of the Muslim World’s, the people will have no real way to guard themselves against it. No real way to rebel against it. They’ll be forced to adhere by the Quran.
I find it odd that people point to England as an example of gun control that works. Clearly it doesn’t. Sure, there’s not very many gun crimes happening, if at all. But crimes, and violent crimes at that, are only becoming more and more common.
So the purpose, the true purpose, of gun control isn’t to make people safer. The people of Great Britain surely aren’t safer. The purpose of gun control is to highly regulate and make it extremely difficult for people to have guns. The purpose of gun control is to allow the government to have near unlimited power over the people they supposedly serve. The purpose of eliminating the 2nd Amendment is so that the government (specifically, Democrats) can go after the first.
If gun control worked, meaning that it did its supposed job of keeping people safe, then Great Britain wouldn’t be in the huge mess it’s in. They don’t have much gun crime. But in return, they have higher rates of other crimes.
Congratulations, Great Britain. You’re ensuring that the fall of your empire is permanent.
