Playground gun law: In a grim portrait of modern Britain, rifle-toting police mix with children on estate plagued by gang shootings

This is interesting. I was under the impression that the British government was far more interested in manufacturing an image of England to the public than actually dealing with reality at any level at all. So this move means one of a few things, perhaps all of them. That parts of England have gotten so bad that they are ready to abandon their illusion of a multicultural paradise (No matter who they want to blame, White indigenous English people or the ‘Asians’ either way its a failure) or a swing to the rational where there has to be enough force available to preserve anything like actual sovereignty.

Still, major charges should be laid on the government officials who set up these immigration policies and concealed the knowledge of muslim white-slavers from the public.

With a heavily-armed policeman guarding the playground, assault rifle at the ready, it could be the scene of a terror alert.

In fact, this is a routine patrol just yards from a suburban primary school.

The show of force is designed to calm residents of an estate plagued by gang shootings.

In the past four months there have been nine gun-related incidents in Luton linked to the Marsh Farm and Lewsey Farm estates.

In the latest, a 16-year-old boy was shot in the back early on Saturday morning. He may never walk again.

The violence has left law- abiding families so terrified they welcome the patrols, even if they risk scaring children.

Faye Bell, 37, a mother of two, said: ‘The armed police might seem heavy-handed to some people but to us they are hugely reassuring.

‘It’s very sad that it has come to this but we need the police to be armed so they can protect our kids.’

The officers, with a dog unit, have been patrolling the estate near the rundown Purley shopping centre all week.

Marsh Farm residents told the Daily Mail yesterday that the armed patrols had given them the confidence to go outside.

Shannon Read, 17, said: ‘I don’t really come out of my house at all so it’s reassuring to know these patrols are here.

‘I knew the lad who got shot on Saturday so it has been even more terrifying recently.’

Darren Putney, 46, added: ‘Some of the children on the way to school or in the play area look frightened.

‘But the police need to make their presence known.’

The officers carry Heckler and Koch G36C assault rifles with 5.56mm calibre ammunition that can pierce body armour.

  1. I will feel much safer when there are cameras with mounted machine gun turrets in the high streets to complement the microphones and speakers to “Move along, yes you there!” With ID cards and checkpoints we will finally have peace to serve the State. The Lib-Lab coalition get my vote next election. My firm’s boss is paying towards my pension and I’ve got to tell him my baby’s due next week and he’s paying for it….
