Where Gun Control Pays Dividends -This Guy!

Imagine you get dressed every morning to go to school. You slip your stab-proof vest under your school uniform before you slip out the door. Who are you? Chelsea Clinton? Jenna Bush? No, you're a ten year old in Great Britain whose parents would like to see to it that you make eleven!

(Bloomberg) -- Ashgar Jilow used to sell stab-proof vests to nightclub bouncers and security guards at his London military surplus store. Now his clients are kids as young as 10 who fear they're going to be knifed at school or on the street.

``Some of them are so tiny the vests don't even fit under their school uniforms,'' said Jilow, 55, who sells about three of the 120-pound ($230) vests a week. ``Parents don't know what to do to keep their kids safe.''

Every week in London 52 teenagers are victims of knife crime, according to the Metropolitan Police. A child is stabbed to death in Britain every two weeks and knife killings outnumber gun homicides three to one, said Norman Brennan, a police officer and director of the Victims of Crime Trust.

So, how's that gun ban working out for y'all, Brits? Streets any safer? Buy stab-proof vest for ten yr. olds because you live in fear that your schoolchildren will be stabbed before they make it home every day?

Maybe if you rewarded people like Tony Martin for defending his home against thugs instead of prosecuting him, there'd be fewer thugs on the streets with knives to threaten your schoolchildren?
