The United Kingdom is no stranger to gun control, the country implemented tight gun control laws and strict arms regulations years ago but violence still persists in its streets. Depraved criminals routinely engage in street stabbings and despite all the arms restrictions, UK gangs are engaged in a massive arms race.
Gun grabbers in America are constantly pointing to the UK and Australia for a blueprint on what to do here in America in regard to gun laws. Despite the claims made by the gun lobby, the UK is not safe and Australia isn’t much better either. Criminals have opted for knives and icepicks instead of guns, gangs have been able to reach out and obtain firearms over the black market, the only people who have been affected as a result of these regulations are law-abiding citizens of the country.
The black market has been a thing as long as things have been illegal, if there is something that someone wants and it is illegal they can most definitely get it on the black market.
In the UK, gangs from Liverpool and Birmingham are engaged in a massive arms race to gain territorial control of suburban Britain. One former undercover detective came forward to share this awful information with the general public in the UK.
Neil Woods, now a campaigner to legalise recreational drugs for rehabilitation benefits, said criminals are willing to use “extreme violence” to gain an upper hand on their competitors.
That includes “importing” illegal firearms from places like the “Balkans” region of south eastern Europe onto the streets of the West Midlands, ready for combat.
And he warned violence could spill out into rural towns like Shrewsbury and Hereford, where ‘gangs from Birmingham and Liverpool are battling it out for territory in county lines dealing’.
It comes as an FOI by Birmingham Live revealed West Midlands Police seized machine guns and sawn off shotguns from criminals in the past two years, including those in the Black Country.
The strict gun reforms in the UK have done nothing to prevent this arms race, the only thing that has been done is disarmed law-abiding citizens in these suburban areas. While criminals get to run rampant and exploit vulnerable people with drugs and violence these normal, everyday people, are forced to stand idly by.
