Cops in gun-free England getting ambushed, shot, bombed with grenades: Piers Morgan unavailable for comment

Looks like Piers Morgan is right: there’s no gun-crime in England:

A fugitive lured police officers to him before shooting them repeatedly and then throwing a grenade at his victims, a court has heard… Dale Cregan, 29, had evaded a nationwide manhunt when he set the trap, Preston Crown Court heard.

Mr Cregan denies killing PCs Nicola Hughes, 23, and Fiona Bone, 32, in Hattersley, Greater Manchester last September. He also denies the murders of David Short, 46, and his son, Mark, 23… Mr Cregan appeared in court wearing a false left eye made of black onyx.

Mr Nicholas Clarke QC, prosecuting, said PCs Hughes and Bone were killed as they responded to a report of a burglary on the morning of 18 September.

Mr Clarke said: “[Cregan] lay in wait with a Glock firearm with an extended magazine that was fully loaded.

    He looks as if somebody poked him the eye with their protective office scissors.

    I guess it doesn’t work as well as they told us.
    The eye-poker wasn’t available for comment.

    What is it they say? Oh yeah, when you outlaw guns, only outlaws will have guns. More liberal unintended consequences.

    It’s true! There’s no gun crime in England! That’s because England actually ceased to exist a decade or more ago. The gun crime is in the Bristish Isles.

    Piers responds with biting logic: “How much worse would it have been if the innocent victims would have been armed and there was an exchange of gun fire and people had been caught in the crossfire? With strict gun control, the criminal kills you, it’s over, and no one else is hurt.”

    gun free zones are as effective as the no fly zone was over the twin towers.

    I guess they’ll have to establish “Grenade Free Zones.”

    Remember he’s still presumed innocent. It could some other guy with one green eye, and the other Black Onyx.

    So much for the argument citizens don’t need guns because the cops will protect us.

    Speaking of that, how’s the manhunt for the ex-LA cop going???

    I read that England is the 2nd most violent country in the EU and down in Australia violent crime is up. Both are gun free, wonder if there is a correlation?

    That has to be a bogus story…don’t you know guns are illegal in England. Ask Pierced Organ if you don’t believe me.
