Scene From A Disarmed Society: Teens Terrorize U.K.

posted on August 8, 2015

The passage of the Firearms Act of 1997 in the United Kingdom served to prohibit the ownership of handguns and made it virtually impossible for citizens to acquire a long gun. The result: By 2009, Britain was declared the most violent country in Europe

With citizens still disarmed to this day, you can imagine the fear that swept through Stoke-on-Trent and Hanley, two cities in Staffordshire, England, when a gang of teenagers brandishing guns rampaged through the streets on Tuesday, terrorizing bystanders. Alerted to the danger, armed police officers, a police helicopter and dog-handling units arrived on the scene. They arrested three teenagers and a 27-year-old man. The firearms were later revealed to be BB guns.

If the likes of Obama, Bloomberg, Schumer and Clinton have their way, the above could well play out in America—armed criminals roaming the streets while the unarmed law-abiding cower and hide inside.
