So, how's that working out for you?

About a decade ago the UK pretty much completely banned gun ownership. Hilarity, by which I mean an 89% increase in gun crime then ensued.

Yeah, no one saw that coming.  And by no one, of course, I mean anyone with half a functioning brain cell.  Let's see, you tell the world that the citizenry can't defend itself.  Who could possibly anticipate that criminals would leap all over that.

It's things like this that contribute to the disturbing rise of the BNP in the UK.  Let's get one thing clear, I loathe the BNP.  They're neo-Nazis, pretty much straight up.  Now, I think they have every right to exist and to speak.  Hell, I much prefer it when people self-identify as idiots.  But it certainly appears that the Tories and Labour really don't want to talk about the things that matter to the average citizen.  The BNP does.  If that's the only option, well, people are going to take it.  And that's greatly disturbing.
