    There are guns all over Briton

    Well, if you watch BBCs Sherlock that's what you're led to believe.

    Is this the case with other British entertainment?

    In a part of Texas where it is so flat, you can watch a mistreated dog run away for three days!

    Well, I'm sure all the Jihadists have guns and a lot more, and the journalists to that point are correct!

    Well its pretty much a yes. All UK police forces have ARU's (Armed response units) typically armed with MP5, Glock 17 and AR15 variant rifles. As for armed UK citizens, unless you are a very special person who the home office deem under threat IE celebrity or cabinet member no UK citizens are approved to carry a concealed firearm. In regards of private firearms ownership for sporting and hunting there are around 714,000 issued certificates in the UK for FAC (section 1 firearms) and 575,000 SGC (shotgun) . A typical firearms permit is for an initial grant of 6 guns and shotguns is unlimited providing the security is in place. Last NRA UK survey there were around 1.8 million shotguns in the UK with no official published numbers on rifles. This does not include airguns under 12 foot pound and air pistols that don't require licencing. Also after 1997 only the licenced people handed their pistols in, the criminals kept there's . On top of this prior to 1987 shotgun licences did not require the registering of the serial number of the shotgun. When further restrictions were put in place in late 1987 lots of shotguns simply disappeared. This has somewhat compounded gun control issues in the UK making the shotgun the most used firearm by the criminal element.

    I just can't understand why criminals won't comply. Ask the mayor of Chicago how common sense gun control is working in that Hell hole. In this part of Mississippi there are an average of 8 murders a year, most but not all with guns. Having armed citizens makes the world a safer place.

    It was widely held that at the inception and implementation of the EU and the "open borders" of it's member countries as well as the Shengen Pact much more than just cheap vodka from Poland and former Soviet Bloc republics was filtering in, GB being an island and very vigilant at it's coastal borders as well as the chunnel still can't possibly detect every illegal firearm that has made it's way in.
    UK authorities, however is very adept at curtailing gun related arrests stats in the press even with GB's well established tabloid press.
