22 years ago, a gunman entered Dunblane Primary School in Scotland, killing 16 kids and a teacher. The UK govt responded by enacting tight gun control legislation. In the 8000+ days since, there have been a total of 0 school shootings in the UK. #SantaFeHighSchool
And, by the way, to those who say London has a higher murder rate than New York...no. These are the murder per 100,000 rates from the last year that INCLUDE the recent months with large murder numbers in London. Still WAY below US cities.
And, about knife attacks in the UK: in 2016, Texas (pop 28m) had 1,459 murders; England & Wales (pop 58m) had 723 murders. In Texas, which has HALF the population of Eng/Wal but DOUBLE the murders, 175 of those murders were stabbings.
