In a country where even BB guns are tightly controlled items, you would think that gun crime would be minimal.
The teenagers were approached in Plymouth Grove, near Swinton Grove Park, at about 22:30 GMT on Wednesday.
One of the teenagers, 17, had a firearm thrust in her face. She handed over two mobile phones and the robber fled towards the park.
It turns out that this was a BB gun, but do you blame the victims for treating it like it was a real gun? Even 17 year old girls in (Formerly Great) Britain know that gun control has failed. They know that guns are so common that it is perfectly likely that the thing stuck in your face is likely to be a real gun, so best not to argue about it.
When even the children of a country aren’t stupid enough to trust their lives to the government’s ability to ban an item, you know that gun control is a joke.
