    Of COURSE you 'dont doubt'. Oh...its a given that therer is an epidemic of banned substances that are imported here...but...why let facts get in the way of your rant and rhetoric?

    Criminals...not tools. Why is it that people like you NEVER...even now...refuse to focus on the criminals?

    The way you talk you would think the US was the only place with criminals and drugs. Its your criminal fraternities easy access to guns thats your lethal problem and one that fairly specific to your country. The odds are the Boston cop in the OP would be alive today were this not so. Why is it that people like you will be forever in denial ?

    Prohibition did not work. Drug bans do not work. Gun laws do not work. Hell...illegal immigration laws do not work. The reason they do not work is there is lax enforcement and no penalty.

    Even in England...guns are still being imported. Shocking...right?

    120 million gun owners. Law abiding citizens. The head of the FBI came and recently said it best. We arent the problem. Never have been. Guns arent the problem. Never have been. Criminals are the problem. Always have been. Always will be.

    I so love the way the gun lovers have managed to distort the words spoken by the Director of the FBI. He was asked if he had ever had a problem with a person legally carrying a concealed weapon and he answered that he had not had any problems. Nothing more.

    Our gun crime is now the lowest on record due to diligent enforcement of laws introduced after avoidable massacres by gun nuts, to the extent that we now have more killed by lightning strikes each year

    Our police force has killed 52 criminals since 1900. Your police force killed 111 just last month alone !. We lost no police officers in the line of duty last year you lost 126. So what is it makes your criminals that much more of a lethal problem than ours ? What is it that differentiates our two societies ?

    I wonder just how long you can keep this denial going ?

    Give the shooter a break. He was probably trying to take the cop's picture with a camera but accidentally reached for his gun instead.

    Yep. No problems. You don't often have problems with law abiding citizens. You do with criminals. You want to solve the worlds ills and make a difference...start with them.

    Yep...no doubt...we have a lot of criminals. We should really do something about them. That doesn't change the fact that even in England where guns are banned there is a trade in illegally smuggled guns...right?

    What makes it different is we have a bunch of whiny bleeding hearts that shed tears when criminals get out in jail for committing criminal acts. We have a bunch of morons that focus on causes instead of criminals. Take this instance for example. We have a career thug that shot a cop and you have, in order, a group of douchebags wanting to protest a poor widdle victim killed by a cop and another group of douchebags moaning about guns. Neither group has said word one about the scumbag that **** the cop unprovoked.

    Telling. And sadly typical.

    How did that alcohol ban work out? How do drug bans work keeping drugs out of the hands of criminals?

    You remember those guys...right? The 'criminals'?

    Talk about denial.
