No further mass killings in schools since Dunblane in 1996.We are stopping nutters getting legal totally inappropriate weapons. Also we all didn't have guns to take,and still don't want them.It's Americans that are so fearful of crime that you have to have an arsenal of weapons even when living in a twee place like Newtown. The mother had 6 guns to defend herself and ended up being killed by them!

Via The Blaze: Ben Swann, a local Fox anchor for WXIX-TV in Cincinnati, offered up a fascinating fact-check of some of the stats that the British CNN host has been using.

 

“In the UK, there are 2,034 violent crimes per 100,000 people...the U.S. has a violent crime rate of 466 crimes per 100,000 residents."
