Thanks Argentus for the support.
For anyones' information, I am NOT anti-gun par se. Being from the UK, I just do not see the reasoning behind owning them apart from sporting/hunting
Please remember, those of you from the US, that the UK and most of Europe have never had the gun culture that the US has, so to us, we find it amusing
and quite unbelievable at the same time. I think it is probably because of history, that it has taken Europe and the US down different paths when it
comes to ownership of firearms, thus transforming our psyches'.
As a heads-up, I am ex-forces, I am now a Registered Nurse and I currently work as a NHS Nurse in a medium security Prison. If a gun ban was brought
in now instead of a few years ago, I still would have no choice but to hand them in, otherwise I would lose my job and my career as both organisations
I work for are Government Agencies.
In my experience, most people are law abiding citizens and just hope to get through their lives without attracting the attention of the law. That is
why I say, that if a gun-ban was brought in (in whatever form) most people would grumble and not be too happy about it, but nevertheless would still
hand in their guns.
