For decades, Great Britain has bragged about their strict gun control policies and the fact that most of the nation’s police, especially in London, don’t even carry guns.
However, society is changing worldwide. Even British society has drastically changed from what it was just a few short decades ago. It’s not just the huge influx of Muslims, but the major societal shift away from Christianity and biblical principles. It’s impossible for a vacuum to exist in an open system (society), so the vacuum created by the abandonment of biblical principles is readily replaced by unbiblical principles that are generally self-centered and evil. This naturally gives rise to more societal problems like crime. That’s what’s happening in Great Britain and in the United States, but the reaction in the two nations is different.
In Great Britain, there is a push to arm more police and more and more British citizens are wanting their guns back. In the US, Democrats want to take everyone’s guns away.
Gun grabbers used to point, almost gleefully, at the crime statistics in any other nation that might be lower than our own, if that nation also has draconian gun laws.
The U.K. was once one of the nations that these leftwing anti-gunners would point to in their efforts to undermine the 2nd Amendment, but sadly, the U.K. is no longer the model of peace that liberals seem to give attention to.
Maybe because the crime rate (and the violent crime rate) in the U.K. have been steadily rising, even though the U.K.’s gun laws are as severe and uncompromising as ever…
No matter where you look in the world, you will generally find the same thing – places that have the strictest gun control laws often turn out to have some of the highest crime rates, unless the government is so tyrannical that few dare to commit crime. Yet, Democrats continue to deny this as a worldwide fact.
