This is a popular statistic being thrown around by lefties
The odds of being murdered by a firearm in Great Britain: 1 in 1,000,000
The odds of being murdered by a firearm in America: 1 in 31,000
Maybe THAT’s why Piers Morgan is so aware of how dangerous assault weapons are.
There is no truth to it, but that isn’t important to the left. The murder rate in the US is one out of 238,000, not 31,000 – and most of those murders are black people in inner cities using illegal weapons.
In the UK you are more likely to be robbed or beaten up by thugs, because they know that you are not armed.
Boris Johnson came to the rescue of a high profile climate change activist and filmmaker who was being attacked by a group of young girls brandishing an iron bar, it was revealed today.
Franny Armstrong, the director of The Age of Stupid, described the mayor of London as her “knight in a shining bicycle” after he came to her defence as she was walking home in Camden, north London, last night.
She called out for help to a passing cyclist after being surrounded by a group of hoodie-wearing young girls who pushed her against a car, one holding an iron bar.
The cyclist turned out to be none other than Johnson, who has made tackling youth crime a key mayoral priority.
