The more you read about crime and guns in Britain the more you have to ask yourself how willfully blind a society can make itself.
1. Guns are outlawed so common citizens become defenseless.
2. Criminals grow bolder, more violent, and more numerous.
3. Private "security " firms move in to "protect" the defenseless citizens from the criminals.
4. The security firms and the criminals - surprise! - are sometimes in business together but there is nothing the citizens can do.
Haven't these people ever watched 'The Sopranos'?
