However, in late 2009 The Telegraph reported that gun crime had doubled in the last 10 years, with an increase in both firearms offences and deaths.
But the thing is that the Left have no use at all for facts. They will try to discredit the facts all day long, citing "bias" from the source of the facts, while at the same time quoting us their own facts, usually either without revealing the source, or coming from a known biased source. Facts just get in the way of what they are trying to accomplish. They're going to follow the advice of one of the gods of the Left on this one: "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste, and what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things that you didnít think you could do before.".
