Piers Morgan is hopelessly wrong on his statistics Needless to say few media outlets in the UK have picked up on this. A few facts he missed : 1. Gun crime increased between three and four fold in England and Wales AFTER the handgun ban of 1997, 2. The homicide rate in the US has decreased markedly over the last 25 years, whilst gun ownership has INCREASED, more guns less gun crime right? Not exactly . Plenty of studies other than that one support that thesis, plainly the US homicide rate has decreased in recent times whilst gun ownership has increased. Anyone care to prove to me where gun control laws have actually worked? One final word to Piers Morgan and I've said this before, offences involving handguns INCREASED after the handgun ban of 1997, for proof of that I can cite the UK government's own statistics. Please comment below and Americans please ignore Piers he is demonstrably wrong.
I am an English guy in my thirties. I have served in the Army, after that I went to university. Upon graduation I went to work in the Middle East and since then have worked and traveled across that region. My home is now in Lancashire and I undertake work on a range of matters to do with travel and business setup in difficult regions. My reason for starting this blog is to engage in dialogue with people whom I respect but strongly disagree with on issues. Plus they should then be less likely to accuse me of trolling! I am a libertarian by nature my politics are centre-right and my preferred governmental model would probably be the one espoused by the USA.
