Why Gun Crime Is The New Governments’ Fault

Britain has some of the strictest gun laws in the world. To have access to a firearm, you either need to be in a branch of the military or police, in a shooting club, or be a farmer with a gun license. Even if you are in a shooting club or you’re a farmer, you are only allowed a .22 rimfire weapon. President Ronald Reagan was shot by a .22 rimfire weapon, and only realised hours after. This leaves being a part of the military or the police, whose weapons are under strict control.

In the last 2 months there have been 2 major and noticeable shootings – Derrick Bird in Cumbria, and now Raoul Moat. Before that, there was a major shooting every 5-10 years. What could possibly have caused a senseless massacre followed by suicide, and now a declaration of war on the police by an individual? I think I have found the answer. The new government.

By no means am I a conspiracist, but I am open minded. Before the Clegg-Cameron ruling period, there were shootings of this scale once or twice a decade. Now they’ve happening monthly. Now it could well be that this is just a random surprise, and that two months isn’t a long enough period to draw conclusions from, and I don’t want to disrespect people who have lost their lives to gunmen, but could it be the fault of the government? Should parallels be drawn between a huge increase in major gun crime and the government? The question should at least be asked.

  1. Never heard such rubbish in my life Matt!

    I suppose 9/11 was caused by George Osborne and his bullingdon pal Abdul Ahmed Sharif was it? šŸ˜›

  2. “President Ronald Reagan was shot by a .22 rimfire weapon, and only realised hours after”…I’m sorry? Are you retarded?:
