Sure you have stricter gun laws and the incidence of gun murders is down, but your yearly knife murders have exceeded our yearly gun murders.
And, for the record, you don't speak a different language thanks to our "police actions."
About 700 British Army regulars, under Lieutenant Colonel Francis Smith, were given secret orders to capture and destroy military supplies that were reportedly stored by the Massachusetts militia at Concord.

so what about the 2011 Norway attacks.
Just because you haven’t had over 100 killed yet doesn’t mean that it’s not going to happen.
What are you going to be saying to me the day that 5 terrorists arm themselves up and go walk into 5 schools and start a slaughter.
Then you will all be asking “how could we have let them get those guns”.
