Criminals get firearms no matter what. Just look at the Norway shooter. Guns aren't legal to carry there.
but its alot easier in the u.s... you can even buy them in the supermarket.. no? or i saw something once that said, you get one when you open a bank
here in the uk it is possible to get one, but not easy... you have to know the right people and they always come from the criminal underworld. so yes
they are available but not very common, unlike america, i assume it would be relativly easy to purchase one..
thats why here most of our violent crime, is knife crime.. with gun crime quite low in comparison.
thats why in countries where guns are banned you dont generally get people going on shooting sprees and killing loads of people.. again unlike
america. (of course that could be just our media pushed perception of america here)
it does happen as shown with the norway thing, but that is an extremely rare thing to happen...
