Sharron and Ozzy Osbourne Move Back to U.K.: Not Safe Here, Too Many Shootings

One probably has to be from another country to appreciate that the U.S. and its mass shootings are not just sickening and impossible to understand but also terrifying. Apparently, we’re so used to them happening that we’re numb. We haven’t been touched by one yet (most of us) and so why would we worry as a matter of personal safety? (Many of us, of course, do worry, especially those of us with kids who go through “intruder drills” but not enough).

Well, Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne have decided to get out while they can. They don’t feel “safe” anymore. From U.S. Newsbreak:

In a new interview with Consequence , the former X Factor judge said that although she and her husband loved their life in America, the decision to move has been made somewhat easier because “California is not what it once was.”

“When I first came here, I thought I was in heaven. In the ‘70s, if you loved music, this was the place to be. It’s not that hub anymore,” Sharon explained. “It’s not exciting anymore. It hasn’t gone sideways, it’s gone down. It’s not a fun placto live. It’s dangerous here. Every big city’s got crime, but I don’t feel safe here. Neither does Ozzy.

… The mom-of-three also revealed that the move will be better for her husband and his health concerns, as they will have more land, more privacy, and a different (and hopefully better) lifestyle! “There’s a lot more room for Ozzy,” Sharon added. “He can go fishing on our land, he can go shooting – he loves to shoot – and it’s just a different lifestyle. He can walk around, do his thing, nobody there looking at him. And he can have some privacy.”

The fact that the interview ran on Fox News makes it a little more suspect as to the motives of the interview, and what they’re talking about when saying “California,” but eliminate guns on the street and it’s possible we can do something about it.
