BREITBART.COM - Gun crime: Labour 'losing control': " Gun crime: Labour 'losing control' Jan 25 3:03 PM US/Eastern Labour has been accused of losing control of gun crime as new figures show a sharp rise in armed robberies. Guns were used in 4,120 robberies last year - a 10% jump - including a 9% rise to 1,439 in the number of street robberies where guns were used. There was also a rapid and unexplained increase in the number of times householders were confronted in their own homes by armed criminals. Residential firearms robberies show a 46% leap, a record 645 cases in England and Wales - up 204 on the previous year and four times the level recorded in 2000-01."

    When guns are outlawed, it will be obvious who the "bad guys" are.

    I told my mother this the other day, but she just said that guns should be outlawed. I used to be in that camp too until the facts hit me in the face. I don't like guns, but there's no doubt that outlawing them puts them solely in criminals' hands.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
