These serial lawbreakers are not deterred by statutes prohibiting or regulating gun ownership.

No conclusions were drawn in the study, but Oliver said it made him think police need a better way to track firearms.
Restricting firearms has helped make England more crime-ridden than the U.S.
On a June evening two years ago, Dan Rather made many stiff British upper lips quiver by reporting that England had a crime problem and that, apart from murder, "theirs is worse than ours." The response was swift and sharp. "Have a Nice Daydream," The Mirror, a London daily, shot back, reporting: "Britain reacted with fury and disbelief last night to claims b
