    .22 bullet found in Fossgate, York (From York Press)


    22 bullet found in Fossgate, York
    8:57am Friday 21st January 2011

    A STARTLED man has told how he found a bullet lying in a York city-centre street.

    Tim Stark said he was unloading items into the MOR Music store where he works in Fossgate yesterday morning when he spotted what he believed to be a live .22 bullet gleaming in a puddle.

    He said he immediately called police, who came and took it away.

    “I have no idea what it was doing there,” he said.

    A North Yorkshire Police spokesman said the bullet had been put into safe storage, and CID had confirmed it was not thought to be connected with any incident currently under investigation.

    He asked anyone with any information about the bullet and how it came to be in Fossgate to phone the force on 0845 60 60 47.

    I can think of a few states where you might see a similar news story in the next 10-20 years.

    I don't have any links, but I hear since they outlawed guns that the violent crime rate has doubled.

    You can no longer possess a handgun even if it is left in your home for self defense.

    A ,22 caliber bullet found on the street makes headlines and the police are actually investigating. Seems absurd.

    Is Great Brittan on the right track, I don't think so.

    What does the above have to do with gun laws? From the Daily Mail article you quouted:

    Read more: The most violent country in Europe: Britain is also worse than South Africa and U.S. | Mail Online

    Here are some stats from the FBI about the Country we live in.

    Expanded Homicide Data - Crime in the United States 2009

    Most of the "violent crime" in the UK is good old fisticuffs.

    Forgot to add this tidbit from the FBI report:

    I'd say a large part of those U.S. homicides can be tied to the disastrous War on Drugs.

    Things in the U.K. might not be as rosy as you think.

    Knife and gun crime have been under reported, police memo admits - Telegraph

    Serious violent crime under-reported for a decade - Telegraph

    Here are the homicide rates in the U.S. by state:

    Source: U.S. Statistical Abstract
    http://www.census.gov/compendia/statab/2011/tables/11s0304.pdf

    The states in bold are "no issue" for concealed carry. Curious that two are well below average, one is a little below average and two of them are well above average (one of them has the highest in the country).

    Yep, and Vermont has "constitutional carry". All you need to conceal carry is a driver's license.

    I have no idea when it will happen, but one day, people will wake the hell up and realize that liberal or strict gun laws are not a good diagnostic, nor a reliable predictor of violent crime rates. The problem is much deeper than that.

    I blame the Brady Campaign for trying to pin the blame on guns for the violence in this country.

    And yes, I feel less safe walking around London than I do Richmond, Virginia...and that's saying something.
