Trump defends United States gun laws, brands London a knife crime war zone

France slams Donald Trump for Bataclan remarks during NRA speech Gobsmacked Londoners Bash Trump After He Complains About UK Violence To The NRA

The President roused the NRA audience with an emphatic claim that if everyone in France had more guns rather than facing more terror attacks, terror attacks would have been stopped.

Can you imagine what it would be like if they had guns?

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has previously clashed with the USA president over Mr Khan's response to terrorism, declined to comment on Mr Trump's latest comments. "They say it's as bad as a military war zone hospital ... knives, knives, knives".

"Knives, knives, knives. London hasn't been used to that". They're getting used to that.

Labour Party lawmaker Sarah Jones tweeted that Trump's speech was a disgrace.

Trauma surgeons in London, meanwhile, said Trump had missed the point after, in the same speech, he linked knife crime there to an absence of guns.

Lebanese Interior Ministry: Calm Elections Kick off
Lebanon's parliamentary make-up reflects the amalgamation of communities, religions and sects living side-by-side in the country. At midday, after casting his ballot in southern Beirut , President Michel Aoun described the process as "successful".


London political leaders and physicians condemned Trump's remarks and called any implication that guns would stem a troubling increase in knife violence outlandish. "Gunshot wounds are at least twice as lethal as knife injuries and more hard to fix".

Karim Brohi, the director of London's major trauma system, also denounced Trump's comments, and issued a statement touting the Royal London Hospital's success in reducing the share of young knife attack patients who return with further attack wounds. Past year he reportedly suggested there were "no-go areas" in London because of Islamic extremists. While for previous year, the city saw 116 murders, including at least 80 stabbing victims and 10 gunshot victims, the police said on Saturday.

In fact, London and other British cities are in the midst of an epidemic of gang violence, although whether or not gun control is a reason for that violence is a matter of opinion and is outside the purview of this article. In 2017, London's murder rate per 100,000 people was 1.2.

According to figures from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, the murder rate in the U.S.is approximately five times higher than Britain's. San Diego, the big city with the lowest murder rate in the US, still had 2.2 murders per 100,000 people, according to an analysis from USA Today.

Gun deaths in the USA this year include the 17 people killed at Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida - a massacre which has galvanised the anti-gun movement.

Those British reports last month followed headlines stating that London's murder rate had surpassed that of NY. "Anyone who does will be caught, and they will feel the full force of the law".
