Nope, the British felons will still have the experience, it's the
British law-abiding citizens that won't have it.
Can you imagine the scenario, two robbers on the way to a bank job,
and one says:
"Ere, Nigel we can't do this, firstly we gotta an illegal pump-action,
and wots more, I aint' gotta firearms licence"
Nigel, "Ah shite, your'e right, we'll have to give up this lark and
get proper jobs"
So, you can see that gun control will be 100% effective (Well 100%
effective in creating new jobs for the coppers, all that extra
paperwork and computers, increased budgets and staff and all)
I seem to recall reading a report in Time or Newsweek or something
similar that armed crime in the UK has not decreased in any
significant manner since the somewhat draconian gun control measures
introduced a few years back, any accurate data out there?
