"Blood on your hands" is a figure of speech I do not mean you have literally killed these people I mean that your refusal to act and to change is preventing change taking place that could save lives.

Got to ask, for those anti gun advocates on here, did your dad ever take you out and teach you how to use a gun?
Never. He showed me how to ride a bike, how to drink beer carefully, how to sail a boat and how to ride a car. I never understood the fable for guns, I'm more the blades type and prefer to swing a sword now and then. Krauts... I know.
Did your dad never mock you for playing the orcish troll in LARPs? Maybe you should've wasted more time in the woods as a kid, hitting each other with funny sticks.

The key difference in the UK view and the US view is the difference between a right and a privilege. One doesn't have to prove a fitness to exercise a right. Its why old people can have their drivers license taken...driving isn't a right. Travel is, and they are still free to travel.
Well actually you could say the same about guns, the right to bare arms is not the same as the right to own a gun.
You could still have the right to bare arms but without a gun, much in the same way as with a car you would still have your right only it becomes slightly more limited.
Sure you take away a car you still have the right to freedom of travel only its more limited, same with guns, take away the guns or say even limit the amount of ammunition owned, you still have the right to defend yourself only it becomes more limited.

Just what we need...another Brit telling us what our rights should be because they know what's best for us. I think you should join the rest of the world and drive on the right side of the road.........
You say you don't want to see guns banned but yet if we're advocates for the 2nd, we have blood on our hands? Contradict yourself much?
