Despicable. Even more so is the apologists for these types of laws. I sincerely hope the United States takes a close look at the living conditions within the UK, and refers it to the appropriate International legal body for the crimes it forces its Citizens to endure at the hands of record levels of violent criminals in spite of extremely radical anti-weapon laws.
UK Homicide rate : 1.2
US homicide rate: 4.8
Crimes citizens are forced to endure indeed.
Illegal weapon? Automatic weapons are perfectly legal for private ownership in the United States
What is the Citizen to do in the mean time? In the minutes it takes for first responders and eventually SRT guys, what stops the violent thug from killing us? Our own weapons.
Those who follow the law once again won't carry it...........In fact, they may even muse that this law & your anti-gun laws made their violent crime even easier. How this law made them feel secure in knowing that their prey wouldn't have a weapon to fight back.
