I'll remember that next time your govt is telling another nation to be a little more democratic.

We in the UK are about as foreign as your great x 8 grandparents were.

Some among us understand you better than you understand yourselves, because we aren't bound by all your historical and political baggage.



That statement makes no sense.

We came here because we didn't like the historical and political baggage of our ancestors. You are bound by your own historical and political schema, so yes, we have ours, but you likewise have yours. It is a mistake to think you "understand" us better because you don't have our schema.

It is those very schema that shape who and what we our. You cannot apply your schema to us and think your understand us because those schema are not who and what we are and they do not shape our worlds and reactions to them.

I don't make the mistake of thinking I understand you. You don't live here and you don't live this culture.

But go ahead and continue to think that the average person can buy an Uzi. I see how well your foreign understanding serves you in understanding us.

That is precisely like setting up a used car lot, which exclusively sells cars which have been involved in vehicular homicides, and selling them to first time buyers.

What the hell is wrong with these people? Do they not understand that it is not guns which are to blame for murder and mayhem, but human beings, as has always been the case!?

Those "Customers" are freaking actors. That's obvious from the video.

If guns weren't so perfectly adapted for weak people to kill stronger people, they wouldn't be such a popular killing tool.

That is perhaps the most backward, ill thought out argument, I have ever seen on these boards. As others will no doubt attest, it is the historical baggage which drove many folk out of England and the British Commonwealth altogether, spawning the expansion into America and the eventual creation of an autonomous, sovereign nation there after much revolution and the infusion of a large amount of tea, in a little place called Boston.

Now, British as I am, and proud to be I might add, I cannot sit back and merely watch as you express the outer limits of your understanding of the past history which has passed between our nation, and the United States of America, without pointing out that your understanding of it, and of the matters pertaining to the Second Amendment of the Constitution there, is not a product of your being British, but a product of your own inability to recall history accurately, and that your opinion is your own, and not that of a great many other Britons.

A failure to wade in thus, would allow it to appear as if ALL British citizens have no clue, and I cannot stand for that!

Your damn right!

Reason to own a gun

Had this weak woman owned a gun, that strong POS would possibly be dead as a door nail.

Its all about perspective.

Yeah, I mean.....damn those weak people and wanting to defend themselves.

Isn't your time better used dealing with issues within England? And less with issues in a country you don't understand, nor reside in?

My family name faced far more # than your typical god-botherer. We didn't all flee these shores to escape persecution. We pretended to not hate the establishment when it suited us and continued with our rebellious ways in a more subtle manner.

HA!

That's almost exactly why we set sail long ago and had our own little party 'across the pond'.
You just haven't got a clue now do you?

I don't mind weak people admitting they need a gun to protect themselves. It's people who think they are tough because they have the ability to shoot someone that bug me.

We Americans never comment on the goings on in other countries or their laws right?

Which has absolutely nothing to do with the topic at hand. Your personal history aside, your arguments using historical events to legitimise your embattled position on this topic are flawed by way of not being at all supported by the history which has passed between our nation, and the United States of America.

While I would always prefer cold steel over hot lead, a sword at my back rather than a gun at my hip, I also believe that our self defence laws, and the right to bear arms (which has its origins in the Bill of Rights circa 1689), have been significantly curtailed, and not in the public interest in all cases either. Do not use the stupidity of our government, to suggest that the U.S. ought to take after the U.K. in this regard! That would be the most outrageous promotion of ignorance since the last Bush presidential campaign!

No, but It is you telling people from another country that they should be just-like-YOU.

Again, if your nose wasn't pointed upwards at such a steep angle, there would be nothing to smell.

That's not what you said. Your back tracking.

You cant understand why lions in Africa piss on tree stumps because your not a lion in Africa, and you have no idea why people would want to take their security in their own hands in the USA because your not an American living in the USA.

You should probably just not have a opinion on either.

Of course I can. There are people who spend their lives studying such stuff and some are very good at explaining the results of their investigations.
