Ya coz the World is so much more dangerous than during the World Wars, the Franco-German conflicts, the Napolonic Wars, the Conquest of the Americas, the enslavement of Africa, the Religious wars in Europe, the Crusades etc.

I think his point was to basically say not to apply "American" reasoning to this tragedy. The shooter snapped, plain and simple. It had nothing to do with illegal immigrants. Such occurences are rare in the UK, but common here in the US. Over here, people would probably not make such a big deal about some crazed loon shooting up a town because he lost his job or something, but in the UK specifically, it's rare and people *should* be shocked and disgusted by that level of violence.

Fool, you embarrass yourself and your country. This is from the BBC in case you have never heard of it you silly hick it is the British Brodcasting Corporation, the U.K.'s state broadcaster, but check out the National Enquirer or Stormfront because that seems more to your taste.

BBC News - Cumbria shooting rampage death toll reaches 12

Note the pictures of the Victims obviously Albino Africans

Are you done whining and personally attacking people now? Or do we need to change your diaper for you. I know what the BBC is. I rarely watch it but I know what it is. I wasn't making accusations of the race of the victims just wanted to know what they were. How about you stop being a troll and accusing someone with a different view of things of being a racist.

How about you learn that the rest of the World does not view the World like you, especially here in Europe. Watching this on Irish, British, French and Euronews channels, you are the first person I have come across to make such an ignorant leap in the dark.

1. It's not ignorant its a possible reason. 2. I never said ANYONE saw the world the way I see it. I really don't care if they do. Obviously if the world doesn't see that the U.K government is allowing more and more illegals into the country and soon enough England won't be English anymore but a mixture of 3rd world illegal immigrants. I am glad that is what you want for your future. Makes me sick to my stomach I remember a few years back sinn fein said it would rather have africans move to Ireland than the English. That is a sick mind.

This is how common this is in the U.K. and probably more so than most other European nations. The fact that this is so so so so so so so so so so Rare that European gun control works.

Gun control only lets the government control its law abiding citizens. Criminals still have weapons.

You're talking to a Protestant and a pro-loyalist here. I hate Sinn Fein as much as the next person, but this incident had nothing to do with illegal immigrants. Google it, FFS. The guy had family problems and was involved in an altercation with other cabbies the night before. In US terms, he basically just "went postal", but on a grand scale.

If I got to the stage where I felt nothing but hatred and hurt, I'd just put a gun to my head. I would never want to take anyone down with me. He was clearly a troubled man. I wish he could have got help.
