Guns don't kill people!

Britain some time ago did the unthinkable: they banned handguns. The gun fiends took offence, the London riots being the latest phenomenon that apparently we can blame on the ban. "They'd show some respect and folk could protect their streets" was a standard corruption of the belief that gun ownership would naturally generate substantial deterrence effects.
But how will they take the most recent British data and spin a story? The homicide rate is down to a 30 year low. Police recorded 550 murders in 2011-2012. Golly, that won't fit well in the gun fiend rant!
