Bloomberg, Barrett, and Bullshit

The mayors agin-"illegal" guns are, of course, against all gun-ownership. Their platitudes about hunters are merely the lipstick they paste on the pig.

Jolly Olde England has enacted what the mayors want. How's that working out?

Labour has been accused of losing control of gun crime as new figures show a sharp rise in armed robberies. Guns were used in 4,120 robberies last year - a 10% jump - including a 9% rise to 1,439 in the number of street robberies where guns were used.

There was also a rapid and unexplained increase in the number of times householders were confronted in their own homes by armed criminals. Residential firearms robberies show a 46% leap, a record 645 cases in England and Wales - up 204 on the previous year and four times the level recorded in 2000-01.

Bloomberg, Barrett, (et al) kinda hope you can't read the facts.
