A British teenager was shot dead in London only minutes after a man was stabbed in the head in another part of London.
The victim, was shot dead in broad daylight.
Despite efforts by London Ambulance Service to attend to the victim’s wounds, he was pronounced dead after forty minutes of effort to revive him.
The shooting occurred after a man in his thirties was stabbed in the head in another incident that took place on London Road, Sutton. However, the injuries this victim sustained did not turn out to be life-threatening.
Gun crime has become a national issue in the United Kingdom, despite comprehensive gun control passed during the past three decades which has all but prohibited firearms ownership for self-defense in the U.K.
A day before the West Northwood shooting the Metropolitan Police seized a vast arsenal of firearms and explosives. In a raid taking place at an industrial estate near Bretts Farm, Romford Road, police found “three AK-47 assault rifles, one sub-machine gun, two shotguns, one revolver, one self-loading pistol, hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and 22 grenades”.
Law enforcement also found “A large number of stolen vehicles, several kilos of Class A drugs, and a cannabis farm”, and arrested one 31-year-old male “on suspicion of possession of firearms, ammunition and explosives with intent to endanger life”.
The causes of Britain and London’s violent crime wave are hotly debated.
Some argue that significant cuts to police funding by the central government, while others blame the law enforcement for focusing on non-violent crimes such as “offensive speech“.
The scaling back of stop and frisk has also been blamed for the violent crime increase.
When violent criminals were asked about London’s crime dilemma, they attributed weak sentencing and mass migration to the rise of crime.
One gang member said that “Giving tougher sentences will prevent people from carrying knives because nobody wants to go to jail for 10 or 15 years just for carrying a knife.”
In what many see as a futile effort, U.K. authorities have even floated the idea of knife bans and have instituted knife surrender initiatives.
Immigrant ghettoes have become a major problem in present-day London thanks to mass migration policies that the country has adopted in the past decade.
As time progressed, these areas have become home bases for criminal elements.
One criminal revealed to the Evening Standard how “In the last 10 years, since the Somalis and the Congolese came to London, they taught us a whole new level of violence.”
Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther
Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.
One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.
On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.
While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley”
Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”
However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.
The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed. In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.
Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.
She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.
Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.
The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.
A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
