Does anybody need more than one guess as to where it's taken place?

Clue:- Guns don't kill people.......

You are forgetting that if guns were banned, the killer would have knifed them all, driven over them, or planted a bomb.

Yawn if that is thinly veiled dig at me!
Yes utterly tragic same as the 158 fatal stabbings and shootings in London in the last year. 5 already this week!

Not to mention the 50+ shot and stabbed to death in Glasgow.

40,147 stabbings in the UK to March 2018, 1299 of those in London.

It's almost like the UK media is ignoring the fact that stabbings have risen by 16% in London this year.

I would like to see the likelihood statistics of being stabbed in London and being shot in a mass shooting in US.

I suppose the key difference there is that there is the collective will in this country to do something about it.

Hardly think the media are ignoring stabbings since I have seen loads of news reports on that very subject. In fact there was one this week where they compared down south with Glasgow’s approach to gangs.

However it’s disingenuous to try and imply that UK stabbings are comparable to US shootings.

First comparison on google states;

“So, how does the US and the United Kingdom compare when it comes to gun and knife crime?

We looked at murder rates from both weapons over a five-year period.

There were 34 firearm homicides in the US per million of population in 2016, compared with 0.48 shooting-related murders in the UK.

Knife murders are also higher stateside: there were 4.96 homicides “due to knives or cutting instruments” in the US for every million of population in 2016.

In Britain there were 3.26 homicides involving a sharp instrument per million people in the year from April 2016 to March 2017.”

Cmon P, dont let facts get in the way of dramatising it all!!!

Gun crime in America is a big deal, but unfortunately, the clown at the top loves them......along with a lot of the population

Vanishingly small, but if nothing is done about the problems in both places it'll happen to someone eventually.

Police budget cuts and fewer police are not helping in the UK

Be true to who you are
