“Three stab victims staggered past stunned witnesses after two parked vans were torched, then exploded, in a suspected clash between rival gangs,” thesun.co.uk reports. “Three suspects are now being hunted by police after the ‘targeted attack.’ The attackers drove a stolen Ford Transit van at three men sitting in another van in Cardowan on the outskirts of Glasgow on Sunday afternoon. The three men in the parked van…managed to get out of the vehicle but were then chased and attacked with knives in Frankfield Road, Stepps. Both vans were then deliberately set on fire, sending flames ‘as high as a house’ into the air, according to one witness.” Guns? Them too . . .
Emergency service sources confirmed that witnesses had reported seeing guns. They added: “It’s very fortunate the injuries weren’t even worse given the amount of weapons on show.”
Another insider said: “There were reports of men with machetes running around the street.
“A van was then set on fire and this sparked a fire in another van parked next to it.
“Three people were found injured at the scene and witnesses also confirmed seeing firearms.
“One had a stab wound to his belly and the others had some puncture wounds to their hands.”
I suppose you could say that the attack showed the success of UK gun control, what with knives and machetes being deployed and guns being held in abeyance by the attackers. But that would be ridiculous.
