Disarming Britain
Review by Louis P. Burns aka Lugh © 2008. All rights reserved.
    I've been an active participant on a discussion group over on Facebook about the rising level of gun and knife wielding gangs. You can read that thread if you have a Facebook account by going to this link:

    http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=1 ... 748&ref=mf

    Right now I feel it appropriate to say that the first installment of Disarming Britain and the Dispatches show before it on Channel 4 tonight were stunning insights into the whole rise of gun culture. They explored life within gun and knife wielding gangs and many of the methods being used to police/reduce them. They included former gang members who had been injured or wounded others and a doctor from a busy A&E ward addressing the horror faced by victims in the last throws of life. There are as stated in the blurb for Disarming Britain 'unflinching' Q&A's with armed gangs and most chillingly of all, a young man brandishing a pistol and saying; 'This one's for you Gordon Brown' and 'Fuck the police!' This confirmed a point Bruce, Kimberly and I discussed on the thread up above about there being political motivation behind some gun/knife culture across the UK.

    If the rest of Disarming Britain is like this it should win deserved awards.

Petition to stop army adverts/commercials...

Petition to stop army adverts/commercials with an aim to reducing gun crime
By Louis P. Burns aka Lugh © 2008. All rights reserved.

I would be grateful to my Facebook friends if they signed my petition to have army adverts and commercials made illegal. On the grounds that these commercial portray the use of military force and weapon's usage in a glorifying way that may inspire some young people in society to see guns as something positive or a means of protecting their land / turf...

I'm sure everyone is fully aware that both gun and knife crimes are on the increase within Britain/UK/Europe. Any responsible government seeking to reduce these statistics should address the morality of army adverts, commercials, posters and websites. Due to their potential to endorse the use of armed or military tactics to maintain land / turf / places of criminal revenue from drug and illegal weaponry sales.

Please sign the petition to stop army adverts/commercials with an aim to reducing gun crime. To sign the petition click on the link below:
