I think this whole shooting situation is madness why feel the need to carry guns? right infront of our doorstep. It is very sad and these people have to be stopped for the sake of the young ones that are going to be our future.

Right in front of our doorstep, you are totally right Khadra. I live two houses away from where the shooting took place. I was watching tele when the 4 shootguns went off.... fiction or reality? Sirens, police, a man on the floor. Sadly, reality. First riots, now shootguns... I will never feel safe on my road again.

Doover, how spiteful, Wimbledoner is obviously a student, not sure about putting his phone number up though!

On topic, agree about the ridiculous gun problem in London, there really is no need for anyone to carry guns, or any weapons for "protection", just stay away from idiots who would hurt you, its not that hard.

I just thank god my teenage son is studying well away from London.
