Hello everybody, welcome once again here on the gun debate critic on sunday, glimpsing across the pond at the global example for gun control activists: the united kingdom.
Little time to waste here, let's get going:
There's been one drive-by shooting, leaving a man injured by pellts (birdshot?) in his neck. Another man was shot in the legs in front of his kids in what looks like a para-militairy attack. Another couple of criminals used guns to rob a shop, threathening to kill the cashier.
Another armed robbery on a pub by men armed with blunt implements left no injured, thank God.
Still, there were some fatalities; a 16 year old kid was stabbed to death, four have been charged. A man died a good month after being assaulted.
And this weeks taker of the cake: a kid who was attacked by a gang of 17 armed with -amongst others- swords. Other weapons included were baseball bats, knives and a bicycle chain. The victim died from a stab to his heart.
