Why?. Because I mention guns?. I am pro-guns, and pro-2nd. Also very pro-American and pro-Republican. I am a gun owning UK conservative and Eurosceptic.
I am merely responding using the figures regarding UK and US violence.
Keep your guns, get rid of them, I dont care. Its your choice. But I will step in where MY country’s violence is being debated and distorted.
Bob, 96% of the UK is NOT Muslim. And parts of the UK like Scotland, Wales and NI are even less (0.16% are Muslim in Scotland). And the UK govt is RESTRICTING immigration.
We are not and are not being taken over, conquered, dhimmied etc.
scotsman, can you give us some insight as to what you are seeing in your large cities regarding real violent crime (not going out on a boat), gangs, guns etc. Thanks.
I’m not going to beat up on the Brits.
Remove all the urban areas from the world and the global crime rate will fall to under 10%.
“We are not and are not being taken over, conquered, dhimmied etc.”
The transitions always start slow - but it’s the trending that matters and how the natives handle it all. The last time I checked, you have Sharia zones in some neighborhoods. That’s not good. And don’t forget the birthrates and immigration rates. Finally, it’s not me saying this will happen, it’s your own Imams saying it...and they usually mean what they say.
However, the murder rate in Detroit was several hundred times higher than most of the other cities in Michigan.
Violent crime in America is limited to certain areas. The vast majority of Americans are honest and law abiding. People who want gun control and other government control ignore the fact that most Americans are not violent.
Chicago has had about 450 children shot so far this year. Chicago has extremely strict gun control probably similar if not stricter than Britain.
No one in government proposes any solutions other than more bureaucracy and more government control of honest law abiding citizens. No one in authority proposes actually cracking down on actual violent criminals.
The UK therefore has far more violent offences on their books than the United States, and that completely changes any comparison, in fact it arguably renders it useless, certainly wholesale comparisons. Of course the UK is going to look more violent if it has 2, 3, 4, 6 times the amount of violent offences on the statute books...If so, then the multitude of homosexuals in Scotland are driving the numbers up, all kinds of numbers. Yea - cancel that vacation to Scotland!
‘The vast majority of Americans are honest and law abiding’
I agree. Please dont think I am saying or think Americans are all violent savages.
I have explained WHY the UK looks on paper to be the most violent Western nation.
And if the black, male, teenage gun homicide rate were removed from US statistics, our male, teenage gun homicide rate would be about the same as Switzerland’s.
The REAL tragedy is that a lot of those homicides are committed by blacks against their neighbors.
LOL, I’m sorry, I stopped taking your links seriously when I read that South Africa has a lower violent crime rate than Britain.
We can do that ethnicity by ethnicity, right on down through Ibo in Nigeria, and Chinese from Shanghai, or from Canton, or Overseas Chinese.
Then there are the Japanese Americans ~ one criminal in nearly a century!
The Democrat party, though, claims that only by disarming the Republicans will they be safe.
These are articles in British newspapers that cite studies by British “experts” and and quotes from British public figures. I don’t know if the articles are accurate or not. I just wanted to show you what your countrymen are saying.
There are many more articles in British publications that say essentially the same thing.
Is there someone who can't find electrical ties
20 children shot in Connecticutt and the politicians and MSM won't shut up.
We are subject to the constant repetition of the lie that America is bad, that it is the fault of law abiding people and that all gun owners are violent crazies.
All law abiding citizens are accused of not caring about children or wanting to kill children if they disagree with any proposal for more government control.
It's that way all across the board. Americans of any particular ethnicity are less violent than their kin back in the old homeland.
