Oh boy, you gotta be kidding me. To compare the UK to the US is silly because the cultures are completely different and America is huge in comparison.
The UKs population isn't even half of Americas but that's besides the point. America is huge and a melting pot, a pot that has A LOT of violent
criminals, gangs, and people who commit gun crimes without legal guns. Happens every day in America and banning guns isn't going to stop it. Bloods,
Crips, MS 13, Latin Kings, and thousands of other gangs, just gangs, not even counting all of the OTHER criminals in just America alone. They aren't
giving up their guns, good luck with the ban though
Instead of blaming guns how about we blame the gun owners. This mother apparently was a doomsday prepper who bought and trained with these weapons for
the up coming revelation. Too bad she didn't learn about a gun safe, especially being that her son was CLEARLY mentally unstable.
You can't ban guns in America no matter how hard you try. Fully automatic weapons are banned but you'd be a fool if you'd believe there were no fully
autos here in the states. In fact, there's much worse than fully auto's here and there's nothing any law can do to stop it. Nothing.
Banning guns does help take the weapons out of irresponsible people's hands, even the evil ones, but what it will mostly do is take guns out of the
hands of good responsible people who actually follow and obey they law. They are the true victims because the Gov't and criminals, well they're one in
the same but that's besides the point, won't be giving up their guns no matter what law is created.
The 2nd Amendment exists to protect citizens from danger, and in the minds of our fore fathers that danger is a TYRANNICAL Gov't. You know that one,
Britain. The UK has now become the poster boy for Big Bother and America is in tow following that model. The US Gov't would absolutely love to get
guns our of Americans hands, especially with tools such as Indefinite Detention, the Patriot Act, etc. Clearly the western Gov'ts are tyrannical today
and the last thing I would advise Americans, or anyone, is to give up their guns.
I want to end this post with just 4 words...
