More on Great Britain
The Telegraph has the story.
"A big rise in street robberies across England and Wales rocked the Home Office last night only hours after John Reid announced a major overhaul of his embattled department, including a purge of top civil servants.
The latest crime figures showed an eight per cent increase in muggings, in particular in the towns and cities targeted just a few years ago by Tony Blair's 'street crime initiative'."
Restore lawful private posession of firearms and the lawful use of same in self-defense, with a background check if you must, ...but restore private firearms...nothing else is as cost effective against crime as the idea in a criminal's mind that if he breaks into a home or threatens even the most petite little old lady walking home from her church tea that he, the criminal, could be shot and killed...For God's sake, Britain is where the Castle Doctrine (every englishman's home is his castle...) originated.
