Despite Strict Gun Control, British Gangs Still Gunning Each Other Down In The Streets

posted on May 9, 2017

A new documentary airing on Britain’s Channel 5 reveals that, despite nearly a century of strict gun control, violent crime in England actually appears to be getting worse.

The documentary, called “Inside the Gang,” reveals today’s gang members are even more ruthless than their predecessors. Gangsters as young as 15 brag about shooting others for trespassing, or simply for entertainment’s sake. One, who goes by “Haze,” says he “loves” shooting people, and that the sight of them “scatter[ing], running into houses,” is indescribably exciting. But, he says, “If I can’t catch them, I’m going to their mums, and they’re losing family members.”

Britain’s large supply of illegal guns—estimated at roughly a half-million, despite decades of regulation—make this possible, particularly the influx of WWI and WWII firearms coming from soldiers’ estates. Some of these essentially untraceable weapons are fully automatic. Most can be obtained in just a few hours.

What are law-abiding Britons allowed to possess in order to combat such firepower? Rape whistles.
