England is finally cracking down on replica gun crime by cracking down on replica guns. Fake gun crime in Britain has skyrocketed after the total ban of real guns in 1997.
The ban will cover anything that looks like a gun or is used to emulate a gun. This has been a real problem in England, where people are commonly held up with combs, cell phones, and the old finger in the pocket trick.
Crime in England is still much lower in the U.S. where people are permitted to carry guns around, sparking frequent wild west style shootouts. I saw two of them on the way home from the mall yesterday.
