Lots of good that has done in Britain since their gun ban. Violence with GUNS is rising at 100% per year..year after year.

You're absolutely flat out and completely wrong (as usual).

The total number of firearm offenses in England and Wales has increased from 5,209 in 1998/99 to 9,865 from 1998 to 2008. That's 100% in a decade. Of those offenses, England and Wales have about 50 gun homicides a year.

In 1998 alone, 30,708 people in the United States died from firearm-related deaths (12,102 of those deaths were murders).
