Since the episode at Leytonstone Station last week, I'd like to add a few words…
We’ve – here in the UK – got gun control. The United States doesn’t have much gun control.
Think about – it hardly bears thinking about – how we would have fared at Leytonstone Tube if wannabe jihadi Muhaydin Mire had had an Ak-47 instead of a hobby knife.
What we would have got – if a gun lobby and its true believers was running our show – was carnage. Including two riddled corpses – suspects – who now can’t be of any help, can’t be interrogated. Unlike Muhaydin Mire.
I know which I’ll take.
