Culture of violence: Gun crime goes up by 89% in a decade

Gun crime has increased five-fold in some parts of the UK
Gun crime has almost doubled since Labour came to power as a culture of extreme gang violence has taken hold.
The latest Government figures show that the total number of firearm offences in England and Wales has increased from 5,209 in 1998/99 to 9,865 last year - a rise of 89 per cent.
In some parts of the country, the number of offences has increased more than five-fold.
In eighteen police areas, gun crime at least doubled.
The statistic will fuel fears that the police are struggling to contain gang-related violence, in which the carrying of a firearm has become increasingly common place.
Last week, police in London revealed they had begun carrying out armed patrols on some streets.
The move means officers armed with sub-machine guns are engaged in routine policing for the first time.
Shadow Home Secretary, Chris Grayling, said last night: 'In areas dominated by gang culture, we're now seeing guns used to settle scores between rivals as well as turf wars between rival drug dealers.
'We need to redouble our efforts to deal with the challenge.'
He added: 'These figures are all the more alarming given that it is only a week since the Metropolitan Police said it was increasing regular armed patrols in some areas of the capital'.

UPDATE Correction: The data on the UK is from 2003 and it is not new as previously written however, newer data from 2009 shows gun violence in the UK has increased by 89 percent in the past decade, making the 35 percent figure insufficient.

The only guys who have guns in this case are the bad guys, since guns are banned for the good guys in the UK. Also note: Most violent attacks are from knives or "sharp objects"..

5,000.... 10,000... who the fuk cares.

hahahaaaaaaa

According to the National Crime
Victimization Survey (NCVS), almost
43.6 million criminal victimizations oc-
curred in 1993, including 4.4 million
violent crimes of rape and sexual as-
sault, robbery, and aggravated assault.
Of the victims of these violent crimes,
**1.3 million (29%) stated that they faced
an offender with a firearm.**


Since you aren't very good at math... 1.3 million is a LOT higher than 10,000... even considering the US has 5x the population.

And especially considering the UK has 3x higher violent crime rate... which is expected because they have 3x higher population density.


Ron, I like to think you are a nice enough guy... but you are CLEARLY FLAT OUT WRONG and being a complete fuking moran about it. Get a fuking clue.

YES Ron, very good... it does (sort of) "equal out"!

So now, everyone can agree... higher population density leads to higher violent crime rate.

Now compare the MURDER rates...

Hey Crag!

You may notice some here prefer to be bludgeoned and stripped of their wealth or possessions,, as long as they dont get killed. Amazing lack of intestinal fortitude...

Ron, it is also highly noticable that too many here who want to be taken seriously, align themselves with the pinheads of the world.....thus, shooting themselves in the foot, so to speak.

Talk about moronic.

hedge may act like a jerk here, but at least he knows what he is talking about and doesn't ascribe statistical relevance to personal experience.

I couldn't care less is someone is an as#@&%e on here, as long as they aren't a fuking moran.
