Truth can indeed sound a little insulting if you dont like what has been said..

However.. Something indeed terrible has happened.. Its made me sick to the core and mad because of the sheer insanity of US gun culture..

Fair enough.. Not my country.. But my fellow humans were slain by a country dripping with guns and excuses to keep them.. Yes there are crazy people.. But why arm them in the first place? Craziness.. And sad

Someone is clearly still mad about the outcome of that little tiff we had 200+ years ago.


What tiff?... I was not here 200 years ago so could not give a rats ass.. Besides.. My house is older than your country lol and my tooth brush apparantly has more culture on it.. Time to grow up whipper snappers..


Hmm...last time i checked....we had so much culture that it was starting to make the rednecks mad lol.

But i'll leave it at that and fall back on the fact that if someone is robbing me and tries to kill me, i can ACTUALLY shoot back at them and not go to jail for defending my >200 year home.

They might as well give up their tea. They already gave up their weapon rights and are in the process of accepting sharia law. Whatever happened to the English anyway?


Why do Americans want to spread their culture of gun crime to the rest of the world?

You have more than twice the crime the UK does. Guns do not make crime go down. Only people who want to sell you guns tell you that.

Briton is not giving up their rights to sharia law. But you have to also take into consideration Britons history. We invaded their nations first. For example "we" took over India, other parts of Asia, parts of Africa and the Americas. "We" implemented our law on them first. BY FORCE. Briton is reaping what it sowed.

Oh please the US didn't join in until they got rich with all the loans they gave us etc.
Save us? It was a many many countries who joined in and helped fight the fascists you did help but do not go down that road.


Typical of a blimey limey to now dismiss how the US saved all your Euro asses when we had no dog in the fight to begin with. You'd all be sperkenze duetch if it weren't for our fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers. Figures.

Tea is a natural source of non toxic fluoride.
Guess that invalidates the water suppliers excuse of We add fluoride to your water because it is good for your teeth.' not because we want you docile zombies

Yes, I get it. Us Americans have small wee-wees and aren't real men.


I think many really missed your point, like it was about tea!

And I guess if you want to psychoanalyse us Americans, you might come up with some fearful people, but mostly a lot of intuitive and frustrated people.

Take a look around, the Powerful have ruined our nation. We can see the writing on the wall and don't want to be unprepared.

You Brits, you are welcome to tolerate till the cows come home.

The children today.....horrific. We do pay a price for freedom.

You watch too many Hollywood movies pal about WW2.
Do some research and you will know that is was many countrys fighting the nazis not just the Yanks.
I do thank anyone who helped fight the Nazis but do not take sole credit when it was many people around the world.

You do realize that people who have been declared mentally unfit cannot own a gun right?

Mostly anyway, some of those need to be changed, but the real problem is that crazy people aren't typically found to be crazy until after they do something crazy. Until that time, yes, firearms are easily obtainable. It's a combination of both issues that is a factor in these shootings.

America has already proven that a prohibition on anything isn't going to stop people and the places with strict controls still have some of the worst problems with them so it's not a stretch to assume that a ban is going to fall flat on its face.

I would argue that it's a sanity problem less than a gun problem.

Nonsense. Briton saved itself long before the US joined in. You only helped, along with Briton and other nations, to liberate Europe. (Briton was not considered a part of Europe until more recent times, and even then reluctantly)

"We" could have sat back drinking tea, and let them get on with it. But no we felt obligated to help. You lot had to be forced into it, and you made out like bandits too. It's not that long ago Britain paid off the lend-lease.

Excuse me sir, did you see any of us calling you all cowards? What? Because we want to be able to defend ourselves from Guns, we must be cowards. That seems to be alot of what any non-american keeps saying lately.

So you punched out the guy at the airport? What about those london bombings? Didn't see a whole lot of people rushing to punchout those guys.....


See how that works? Actions can cause equal but opposite reactions.

but no, continue lumping all americans in with the worst examples. Becuase if that works, then you all must be a part of those pedo rings that keep kidnapping all the kids.

Not saying you are, but see how that works?

I drink tea, and my teeth are in excellent condition...(my cousin is a dentist).

Put the guns down, pick up the cuppa.

I am from the UK, we can lecture nobody (by the same token I suppose the US cannot lecture us)- we abandoned our sovereignty years ago, we don't execute child killers, we have zero plan to deal with mass immigration......sad to see and I hope the US and ourselves can get our houses in order


Thank you sir, that is what we need to see. Star

America is full of paranoid cowards it seems.. The excuses I have read on here about this matter smacks of it..

I already gave up tea and any other caffeine based beverage because they became a crutch.. And I dont need one..

Your crutch is killing wee 5 year old kids.. Pfft.. Time to man up and get rid hey?

I don't agree with us Brits lecturing the US on their gun laws, that is your business and you have a different history and culture to us, in many ways I wish we had gun ownership freedom like yourselves, but leave the needless WW2 references out, the US joined in not out of altruism but to further your own foreign interests and become the pre eminent empire, fair enough, but let's not dress it up as "charity" for us Brits

Get out.

No really, leave.

Americans were just another contributory factor of many in World War 2.

OK, so it's an analogy for the gun control argument.
But what analogy are you going to use for Americans who are using that argument?
