can it be? a gun crime here in paradise?

I demand to know how these thugs managed to get a gun in this gun frightened country. Where?  How did they do that?  And where can I?

If you have to read comments made in the papers about how violent we are and how guns are this and that evil, you would think it never happened here.
It does. On a smaller scale cos guns really are hard to impossible here, except for these guys in the video.

Can’t post it here so link below will take you there if interested.  It is pretty shocking seeing some unknown and innocent victim being battered. By the looks of things, they caught him at his home. Looks like it could be the driveway. Not too sure and video is not of the highest quality. 

I suppose when and if the baddies are caught the victim will be arrested cos he maybe called them a name or perhaps insulted one of them. Who knows.
Meanwhile our critics will bleat on about how violent we are. Blah,blah.

This could be any one of us, almost anytime.  That’s pretty scary.

A note to American readers.  Brits hardly ever refer to the ground outside as, ground.  They use the term ‘floor.’ Which got a mite confusing when I first came here cos an article or news report on radio would mention floor, and I’d try to imagine what a floor was doing at an event described by the press. Turns out they mean ground when they say floor, as in someone was knocked to the floor, even if it was out of doors.

Man 62, is ambushed and pistol-whipped by pair of masked robbers for keys to his Range Rover

Robbers punch and kick man, hold him on the ground and hit him with a gun
They then make off with his car keys

This is the shocking moment two masked thugs brutally attacked a 62-year-old man with a gun moments after he arrived home.

The footage shows how the man, who had just driven up to his house and parked his Range Rover, was punched to the floor before being repeatedly hit with the weapon.

The balaclava-clad attackers then stole the victim’s car keys and sped off in a stolen Seat Altea but left the Range Rover behind.

  1. Criminals always have guns.. Why?  Well, because they are Criminals!  They don’t care what laws you pass or how many decent, innocent people you disarm.  They will find guns, usually from other criminals.  This Pollyanna, fantasy, faux innocence, will only get you killed.
    Remember the saying “when guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns”?  It isn’t a saying it’s the goddamned truth.  England is proof positive.  Decent, law abiding people were disarmed, no one is allowed to own or carry firearms, and yet gun crime is rampant in England.  Guns were outlawed, and now only outlaws have guns.  How many times do you need to be hit in the head with a ball bat before you admit it’s a ball bat and wish you had one too?  Re arm England, by any means necessary, before you are slaughtered wholesale.

  3. garyjohn,

    just a few items from a more civilized world. and if you buy that, i have a bridge for sale in brooklyn. lol

    The widow of an organist who died after he being attacked on his way to church has spoken of her grief after his ‘evil’ murder.
    Devout Anglican Alan Greaves, 68, was found collapsed on the pavement with multiple head injuries late on Christmas Eve.
    He suffered brain damage and died in hospital on Thursday night.

    Are men getting away with rape by pretending they were asleep? Rising number of attackers are trying extraordinary defence that they had ‘sexsomnia’

    Up to four children a day are caught with weapons including a ninja star, rifles, knives and knuckle dusters in Britain’s schools, figures showed today.

    Just a few headlines. But if you read the anti-American crap I have with regard to crime and violence, heck, you’d think it existed no place else.
    I wouldn’t say gun crime here is actually rampant however.  It does happen more than it once did, for the very reasons you stated. But actually not as much as you might think.
    They seem to manage quite well with feet, axe,knife, hammers, bludgeon, brass knuckles, cricket bats, bare fists and broken bottles. Jeesh. And that’s just the women.

  4. A what? I had to look up a Seat Altea, never having heard of one before. It’s a euro-minivan-suv the size of a 2003 VW Passat. Comes with a 1.2 liter engine.

    Just goes to show you how stupid crooks are. I’d have gone for the Rover in a flash.
