“Gun-crime in the UK may still be rare, but a drive around our roads reveals that it is far closer to home than you might have thought,” dailymail.co.uk reports. “In fact, hundreds of road signs are peppered with bullet-holes, rather than pellet holes, made by ammunition from illegal firearms.” I like that. UK gun crime “may still be rare.” In other words, it may not be so rare. Or it’s rare now but it may not be so rare at some point in the indeterminate future. Anyway, “Former Marine Matt Seiber, 58, who has travelled the land in search of signs that have been shot at, says there is plenty of evidence of illegal firearms if you look for it . . .
His astonishing pictures show bullet-holes in hundreds of signs across 36 counties, some of which the Falklands veteran believe may have been put there by Britain’s most notorious killers. Driving through Cumbria, close to where taxi driver Derrick Bird murdered 12 people in June 2010, Mr Seiber saw bullet-holes he believes were caused by Bird.”
Evil holes made by evil people! Something must be done! I know! Let’s write a book!
Overlooked gun crime in the UK. Who’d a thunk such a thing was possible in the gun-free paradise known as The Land of Hope and Glory? Someone tell the American antis who cite UK crime stats more than Mormons cite The Book of same. Actually, don’t bother. Why let facts confuse them?
