In the UK, you can own a shotgun if your a farmer...otherwise, nope...no collections, no handguns, etc...hell, even the average cop is left with little more than a billy club and a array of sarcastic remarks to stop crime.
This point can be argued either way...sure, murder and other violent crimes are far less than america, however percentagewise, the english have to deal with more burglery and other "minor" crimes.
Tradeoff? debateable..but its a difference that some would consider unacceptable (hold dead hands and whatnot).
And they are going to be in poor shape for the coming zombie apocolypse
Yep that is one pro of America, having a gun or a sword and your free to walk around with it on you, if I'm wrong then it just says that people have some shadow issues. (Shadow being their fear, everyone has it, just facing it is the hardest thing anyone can do.)
