Three teens shot, 1 dies in London as violent crime surges

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

The anti-Second Amendment gun grabbers here in America often point to the strict gun control imposed upon the United Kingdom as an example of how gun violence can be stopped.

But banning guns and disarming the law-abiding population doesn’t stop criminals from committing gun violence, as three teenagers were shot — one of whom died — in and around London over the weekend.

According to Yahoo News, two young teens aged 13 and 15 were found wounded after being shot in broad daylight on Sunday in the U.K. capital.

Both of the victims were found in separate but nearby locations in the London suburb of Harrow within moments by Metropolitan Police. They were quickly rushed to the hospital with non-life threatening head injuries, at least one of which was caused by shotgun pellets.

Police have yet to recover a firearm or identify a suspect and an investigation is underway to see if the two incidents are related.

Those shootings occurred just hours after a 17-year-old boy was shot and killed in the south London suburb of Southwark on Saturday night.

That victim was identified as Rhyhiem Ainsworth Barton, and his mother stated that he was not a member of a gang and was hoping to be an architect when he became an adult.

Also occurring in another area of London over the weekend was a “large altercation” that ended with an acid attack that seriously injured three men aged 17, 22 and 27.

Despite strict gun control laws, shootings are obviously still occurring in the U.K., and when criminals can’t get their hands on a firearm, they simply resort to using knives or other weapons, including acid.

Nor has gun control reduced violent crime, as London’s murder rate surpassed that of New York City just a couple of months ago.

In fact, knife crime in London surged by 23 percent in 2017, and 60 people have already been murdered in the city since the beginning of 2018.

This and other grisly tales emerging out of London completely undercut the liberal mantra that gun control will create some sort of violence-free Utopia, which we all know simply isn’t the case.
