2007 bloodiest year yet in UK part two

Sharp as a marble dug up a very interesting read concerning the UK:

"Gun scourge on our streets: Nearly 1,000 shot this year"

Despite the outlawing of handguns and clamping down on other firearms in 1997, after the massacre the previous year of 16 school children in Dunblane, the gun menace continues to escalate in the UK. Gun-related murders rose by 6 per cent to 53 in England and Wales, according to official figures for the year ending June 2007.
