    Link: Teen Stabbed To Death In Oxford Street, London - A Muslim teen was stabbed to death on Monday on Britain`s busiest shopping street. This doesn`t look good for London.

    This doesn`t look good for London.
    The murder rate in the United States is 4.8/100k, that means about 40 murders are committed there every day. For the whole world, it`s about 1280 per day. Yet you point to this one murder and turn it against all of London. You are a fool.

    Just for London itself, there is about one murder every 2 days.

    Although I acknowledge the attempt to post something that doesn`t degrade people`s opinion of the United States, this doesn`t work. Maybe next time you could post something positive? No wait, that wouldn`t be entertaining, would it?

    @akabane The more people are around the less likely any one person is to help. That`s been with us for a while.

    Why mention that it was a Muslim teen? Was it a targeted attack?

    @dm2754- So this would have been better if they had easy access to a gun and could have shot him and had a higher chance of injuring or killing a random bystander (possibly an attempt to kill witnesses)? Having easy access to guns in the USA definitely doesn`t stop murders (and LazyMe484 is right in saying the rate of murders in the USA is much higher than in the UK or London). It does, however, give people the ability to kill or injure others much easier than without a gun.

    thatjimguy: The Uk media only mentions `muslims` when they are victims of a crime, when a muslim commits a crime they are called `Asian`.

    The same dishonesty goes on in the USA with the terms `black` and `teen`, they are `black` when victims, `Teens` when criminals.

    I am pro gun but for the sake or argument when was the last time someone used a semi-auto or fully automatic knife to gun down several people, say V-Tech style??

    yea that doesn`t happen with a knife but it does with guns. both deadly but one has a much shorter range and ability to mow down others.

    Do you know how easy it is to make a bomb from gasoline? Bet that could mow down alot more people than a gun. When will they ban that too?

    Also I`m pretty sure creating bombs in the USA is already illegal, so I`m guessing it is in the UK.

    @LillianDulci
    Something being illegal has never stopped anyone with murder in their mind and the materials to make it aren`t. The last mass killing with a gosoline made bomb I can think of was
    April 19, 1995 killed alot more people than any nutcase with a gun.

    @McGovern1981 - The last time you can find for a killing in the US with a gasoline bomb is 16 years ago. Amount dead: 168. How many people have died in the US just this year due to guns? Weapons can be made out of everyday objects so it`s hard to ban them. But it`s rather difficult to make a gun out of everyday objects.

    The murder rate in the USA in 2010 is 5 per 100,000. In the UK where there are stricter gun control laws it`s 1.17 per 100,000. I really don`t see how making the UK like the USA would decrease that rate.

    Not really ever hear of a zip gun?? Oh that right you hate them so know nothing about them but insist on making laws for them how much sense does that make? As for a gasoline bomb there`s more recent it`s just the first I could think of. Here`s a zip gun VV

    I`m sure a zip gun is something that your average person can easily make with objects lying around their house, and I`m sure it`s just as effective in killing/injuring multiple people as a semi-automatic that you can easily buy in the US.

    The murder rate in the USA in 2010 is 5 per 100,000. In the UK where there are stricter gun control laws it`s 1.17 per 100,000. I still don`t see how making the UK like the USA in terms of (lack of) gun control would decrease that rate.

    ...and where`s the evidence that these gun control laws are what affected the murder rate? Apparently guns are the cause of murder following this logic there`s no other causes that`s how this guy was murdered oh whoops.....

    as a semi-automatic that you can easily buy in the US

    What state do you live in(they all have varying laws)? I`m gonna take a wild guess and say you`ve never purchased a firearm before. So how do you now how easy one is to purchase?

    It was two rival gangs fighting and im not sure he was even a Muslim. But that is not nearly as dramatic as Muslim stabbed in London. Please get facts straight.

    His parents were from The Ivory Coast, those immigrants and others from Africa not content with just scrounging from us hard working English folk have decided to form LA style gangs and kill each other but unfortunately they breed like rabbits too so the problem is not getting any better.

    LillianDulci: Do you know how many rapes, robberies, home invasions, and murders have been prevented by armed citizens ?

    Studies have varied numbers, but the consensus is that several million crimes are prevented each year in the US by law-abiding citizens with a firearm.

    Seen the full coverage on local news, that guy was nothing more than a gangster scum, as well as his killer. So good riddance I say. Now get the rest of that gangbanging thrash, throw it into the ocean and be done with it.

    The Uk media only mentions `muslims` when they are victims of a crime, when a muslim commits a crime they are called `Asian`.

    At no point in the clip does the reporter say either "Muslim" or "Asian".

    Time to make knives illegal.

    Carrying a knife in a public place is already illegal in the UK.
