The Cumbrian Massacre

In their response to the cumbrian massacre the Tories have shown that they really could be less bad than Labour, by giving a measured response that this country already has the strictest gun control rules anywhere in the world other than Japan and further restrictions are simply not needed. Events like this are incredibly rare, which is why it has made the news, and banning stuff in a knee jerk response to staggeringly rare events is simply never a good idea. Had Labur still been in power their response would have been very different. Labour's knee jerk response would have been to ban stuff and double the length of time people can be held without charge, because Labour's response to everything was to ban stuff and lock people up without a trial or even charge.
