Gun-Ban UK Warns Of Gun-Toting Terrorists

posted on November 8, 2016

Despite being the anti-gun lobby’s poster child for “sensible gun control,” the UK government says that the threat of attacks from armed terrorists remains “severe.” Its National Crime Agency and National Counter Terrorism Policing organizations warn, “Despite our good work, we know that firearms can enter the criminal market through a variety of means, including thefts from legitimate holders or dealers.” 

Golly. Are they saying criminals don’t obey gun laws? Handguns and semi-automatic firearms are banned in the UK, and gun registration and gun owner licensing are already “universal”—for those who obey laws. Yet criminals and terrorists still get guns. 

That means “gun control” actually does more harm than good. As former INTERPOL Secretary Ronald Noble asked after Kenya’s Westgate Mall massacre, “Where would you have wanted to be? In a city where there was gun control and no citizens armed if you’re in a Westgate mall, or in a place like Denver or Texas?”
