Violent crime bill targets guns and binge-drinking

A big crackdown on gun crime and binge-drinking related disorder is expected to be outlined today in the Government's new Violent Crime Reduction Bill.
Home Office minister Hazel Blears will propose a catalogue of stringent new laws to Parliament, aimed at curbing attacks with weapons or violence fuelled by alcohol.

She is expected to propose an outright ban on the sale of replica guns - currently easily available in specialist high street stores.
