    Exclamation Gunman Opens Fire in London Restaurant

    This could have ended a lot worse than it did. Of course, the gunman got away. It sounds like everyone started hiding under the table like a bunch of sheep.

    What a screwed up country.

    This can't be right. I think they have gun controle over there to prevent things like this from happening.

    Let's stick to the truth on this forum. We all know gun control works every place it is used. The libs are always telling us this and private ownership of firearms is not allowed in England.

    I wonder what they will want to outlaw next over there.... Maybe tables to hide under will be on that list.....

    What the hell else could they have done? I suppose someone in close proximity to the shooter could have tried to take him down. He wouldn't be expecting it since he was focused on the one guy he was chasing. But even if I had that chance, I don't think I would try wrestling a guy with a gun in each hand.

    Somehow, utimmer, I don't believe you. Faced with the same situation, and given your non-sheeple mentality, I think that you would do JUST THAT!


    I found a couple of interesting points by one of the diners, a Mr. Billy Osbourne:

    "Then all of a sudden a guy in a motorbike helmet came in - he had two automatic pistols and he starts firing at the guy."

    Wow, automatic pistols?!? That seems like a LOT of lead being thrown with only two injuries as a result.

    "As soon as I smelled the cordite I was under the table."


    Double "Wow"!!! I guess the bad guy is definitely a reloader, considering cordite has been obsolete for a long time. It's use was seriously waning by the time WW2 rolled around, and the only cordite ammo manufactured since has been for some legacy .303 Enfields that people had set aside. Of course, with the virtual firearm ban, the last of those makers closed in the late eighties/early ninties.

    Well, since there are no guns in the UK, this guy must have been from another planet. No one saw his face because he was wearing a...space helmet! And by the time Mr. Know-It-All had "smelled the cordite", he would have been full of alien lead had the shooter been aiming at him.

    Let's hear the BBC and other media sources put the spin on this shooting in a country with no guns. We're waiting.......

    Oo, oo, I know. The guns came from the U.S., where the Mexicans get theirs. We'll get the blame, for sure, courtesy of the BATFE.

    Well, of course I'd like to think that I would try to take him down. As in any situation such as this, one never really knows how they would react until the time comes. As a fairly quick thinker, I would probably be able to rationalize that the guy would never see me in his periphery. In the same thought, I'm just thinking two guns would be tough to gain control of without getting shot by one of them. I guess I'd just have to smack him so damn hard that he'd lose consciousness and drop both of them.
