I keep seeing people going on about how the British have no guns.
This is incorrect. There are currently 1.8 million firearms in the UK. You don't need to own land, and the majority of the adult population would be
eligible to own one. As long as you are not a kid, suicidal, crazy or a criminal you are fine. Just join a gun club or start bunny hunting.
I own two shotguns. My neighbor owns four (a mix of shotguns and rifles). Our govt isn't particularly uptight about how many you own. The only thing
they are uptight about is keeping them securely locked up when not in use. And they will take them off you after a suicide attempt (although if you
'try to kill yourself' in a houseful of guns by taking pills, I'm guessing you weren't serious).
My stepfather owned handguns prior to the ban, now he has a mix of rifles and shotguns.
So I'm asking, why so many Americans (and a few Brits) get the idea our govt doesn't allow any guns?
I keep seeing this over and over in threads, does the American media give people this idea? I keep seeing as a common concept that we have no civil
rights because we don't have guns. Over and Over.
