The United Kingdom: Gun Control Utopia

The United Kingdom: Gun Control Utopia

April 4, 2002

Britain's gun laws are often promoted by American anti-self-defense fanatics as ideal. The evidence against such an absurd assertion is profound. 

Following are some of the Newslinks submitted to that relate to the United Kingdom, its gun control, its crime, and various other aspects of the burgeoning British police state. While most of these links still function, we are aware that some of them do not. Those that are no longer active web pages are included to show the breadth and depth of the British 'gun ban utopia'.

A few of the links below are highlighted as they are particularly enlightening. Before you start reading from the news stories linked below, consider beginning with this one: Shopkeeper loses eye after 100th robbery.
