Plymouth shooting latest – ‘Incel’ Jake Davison killed little girl, 3, and four others in Keyham gun rampage

 

 

A CRAZED gunman who slaughtered five people including a child in a bloody rampage has been revealed as a “virgin incel loner”.

Jake Davison, 23, moans about how he is “getting uglier” each year and said he was “defeated by life” in chilling YouTube videos.

The crane operator shot himself dead yesterday after gunning down a woman, believed to be his mum, in Plymouth.

Davison also killed a three-year-old girl, a second woman and a male bystander during the horror.

His YouTube page has revealed the mass-murderer as a rambling gun nut who follows the “Incel” movement.

He likes Incel TV – an online support group for “involuntary celibates” that is linked to male supremacy and misogyny.

Incels believe they have no possibility of finding a partner to get love, validation or acceptance from.

  • HOW EASY IS IT TO GET A GUN LICENCE IN THE UK?

    Regulated mainly by the Firearms Act 1968, a certificate issued by the police is needed to possess, buy or acquire a firearm or shotgun, and also ammunition. Rules surrounding obtaining a firearm or a shotgun vary slightly in law.

    Both licences can be obtained from a local police force and require an application form, passport photo and a fee. People applying for a firearm certificate need to give two references while a shotgun certificate requires one.

    The referees must have known the applicant for two years and must be residing in the UK. They cannot be a family member, a firearms dealer, a serving police officer or employee, a police and crime commissioner, a member of their staff, or a member of, or a member of staff of, the Scottish Police Authority.

    Applicants must also prove to the chief officer of police that they are allowed to have a firearms certificate and pose no danger to public safety. Police forces will often conduct a home interview with an applicant as part of the assessment.

    Physical or mental health conditions and previous convictions must be disclosed in an application. Applicants must also give details of the guns and ammunition they intend to acquire.

    A licence can be held for five years and then it must be renewed.

    There have recently been changes to the laws on owning antique firearms, meaning some which could be previously possessed without a firearm will need one from September 22.

  • PLYMOUTH MASS SHOOTING IS FIRST IN BRITAIN FOR MORE THAN 10 YEARS

    The mass shooting in Plymouth is the first in Britain for more than a decade.

    The incident on Thursday in which Jake Davison killed five people before killing himself is said to be the first involving an active shooter for 11 years.

    In 2010, taxi driver Derrick Bird killed 12 people in Cumbria and injured 11 others before taking his own life.

    The Home Secretary denied that a lack of security minister had made it more difficult for the Government to keep a grasp on developing issues, such as the killings that happened in Plymouth.

    Priti Patel told broadcasters: “I would say that that is absolutely not the case. I am the Home Secretary and I oversee these security issues, and I have been doing that throughout. That is nothing to do in relation with the comment you have made.

    “I’ve been kept fully updated and on all issues, all incidences, including those types of issues and incidences that don’t even reach the public awareness and consciousness. I’m fully sighted and fully aware of everything that goes on.”
