Alrite,well I'm not English,I'm Scottish (Och aye,hoots man -thought i'd better say it before our cousins do.l!).
Anyway the UK,the US are very different places.We don't have a culture of gun ownership over here where as it's part of your culture.2nd
amendment,Wyatt Earp,John Wayne etc,etc.lol.
Nah it's ridiculous pie in the sky to imagine the US could ban guns or even if it would wise to try.Who's gonna hand them in anyway ??
Our law enforcement don't carry weapons,only specialised Armed Response Units and they only turn up where firearms are already involved.
They can't legally enter your house,in Scotland anyway,without a warrant issued by the Procurator Fiscal (Magistrate in England,DA ?? in the US) and
if they do you'll prob get done with police assault if you resist too violently but in the end of the day there's not the paranoia about protecting

Well think someone on Angel Dust,only way to stop him to decapacitate him.
If I had a gun at the time I'd have shot him till he wasnt moving and prob killed him.As it was had to use my head,use his rage against him got him
off balance,down on the floor n slammed a knee in his stomach,threw the knife,headbutt in the face,up few solid boots and walked off unhurt and no-one
Few broken ribs n a shattered nose is what he got but thats better than dead.
You can keep your guns cos banning them is just closing the stable door and would put law abiders at real risk.
