Thread Name: BS: Crime in Canada, England and Oz
Subject: RE: BS: Crime in Canada, England and Oz
Here's a thought - Northern Ireland's not exactly been short of guns... now with the ceasefire, the crime level (the so-called Ordinary Decent Crimnal type crime) has rocketed. The latest worrying thing is the huge rise in elderly people being robbed in their own homes, usually with violence. Anything to do with guns or lack thereof? Hmmm, I've heard a few people mutter that a bit of civil unrest might just drop the crime rate again. But let people legally carry weapons? After all the violence we've been through? I sure as hell don't want to.
