This is outrageous! Figures. No guns.
You, guns & the U.N.
Two interesting stories caught my eye today. Both are from England. Both address crime.
If you do the crime, you WON'T do the time
England is tired of crime. Actually, they're tired of criminals, so they're going to let them off with a "caution." The powers that be have decided that there are too many criminals in jail, so they want the police to stop sending them there. Instead, many criminal offenders will get off with a caution, which will create a criminal record for them. No house arrest, no electronic anklet, no community service, no nothing.
England's Daily Mail newspaper states that even criminals with MANDATORY life sentences have been released from jail after serving just 15 months. The crowding is so severe that they have to let previous felons out of jail to make room for new ones. Some of the crimes that will now get a caution instead of trial and jail time include sex with a minor child, stealing someone's car and assault.
British courts are jammed, jails are packed to the rafters and judges can't hold enough trials. I guess taking guns from private citizens has finally made England a safe haven...for criminals that is. In fact, appearing to be a crime-free paradise is believed to be the ulterior motive of the new directive. If England can't reduce crime by removing criminals from the streets, then they'll do it by manipulating the number of prosecutions, arrests, trials and other data used to reflect the state of criminal activity.
Most British subjects don't even bother reporting some criminal activity!
According to another article in the Daily Mail newspaper, 58% of all muggings in England go unreported. There were almost 81,000 muggings reported. Increase that by 58%, and you've got about 192,000 annual muggings taking place. If law enforcement thinks they have a high crime rate now, just imagine what it would be if all crimes were reported. In this instance, we're talking about muggings. There's no telling how many other crimes go unreported.
You can be sure that the 58% figure will increase to nearly 100% when they stop prosecuting criminals and start "cautioning" them. Crime not only pays, it's highly profitable!
What does this have to do with American gun owners?
A lot, as it turns out. The United Nations' Firearms Protocol has declared war on small arms - and their owners. They claim the Second Amendment won't be changed and gun ownership won't be threatened, but their three major requirements (listed below) tell a different story:
What they say: Establish criminal offences related to illegal manufacturing of or trafficking in firearms (based on the UN's provisions - not ours). What it really means: They can tell us what penalties to impose. It will change our judicial system without input from us or our appointed or elected officials.
What they say: License legitimate arms manufacturing and trafficking. What it really means: The UN politicos determine who will get a license to make guns and how, when and to whom the guns can be sold.
What they say: Marking and tracing of firearms. What it really means: The UN will have a record of every gun made and sold and be in charge of the recordkeeping.
Thankfully, the U.S. has not signed or ratified the Firearms Protocol. England has, as have many other countries that already make it almost impossible to own guns anyway. They don't care about guns. We do. Make sure your elected officials do not support the Firearms Protocol.
This is outrageous! Figures. No guns.
Any adult that has sex with a minor deserves to be in jail. Period.
and the brits have more surveillance camera's in the community then any other western power.
i guess big brother is a voyeur!

That way they can SEE who they need to WARN. It should be interesting to see what they do to their little homegrown Jihadii-wannabees who first tried to set off the bomb and then tried to light up the Glasgow Airport. I can hear it now, "Bad Jihadii! Bad, bad Jihadii. You get a 10-minute time out and no extra cookie!" ...on second thought, they probably wouldn't say "Bad" Jihadii. It might damage their self-image.Originally Posted by shipwreck
