The problem is, the Brits simply no longer historically understand why the 2nd amendment was put into place. And I'm sure there are Brits out there
that would absolutely love to see their colonies back under their rule (I can think of at least one). Trust me, this is not a shot at the Brits. I
know most Brits don't think this way. But when the issue of gun control comes up, the Brits should have absolutely no voice or opinion in it when it
comes to America. Historically speaking, we don't want to hear it from you. And at least 30,000 Americans hold that same opinion because guess what?
You guys just might be getting Piers Morgan back.
The British are coming the British are coming! Well... not so much, one redcoat is already here and about to be deported!
I'd also like to talk to those that think that "in this day and age... blah blah". Hitler was less than a hundred years ago. And as corrupt as the
American Government seems to be, handing your guns over seems insane in my opinion.
You know as much about " Britain" as you feel "Britain" knows about the USA.
Lets be clear about something. Britain doesnt actually feel and act like "Britain" anymore. Im English and I long for the day when we rid ourselves
of Scotland and Wales leaving us without the financial millstone that has been round our neck for centuries. Thats not just an isolated opinion
either, most English people wouldnt care if our union was split tomorrow. What that also means is that the notion that we would love to have colonies
back is utter bull, we certainly dont want the USA!!!!
Well, ok MAYBE Australia and New Zealand, we are fond of them and they are more culturally closer to us than the USA is anyday of the week. We tend to
have a soft spot for Canada too, infact, if we are honest, there is little affection for the US from this side of the pond and the "Special
relationship" that has been hawked around by Politicians is purely political from our point of view. There is nothing special in a one sided
"relationship" when you bend us over and **** us up the **** at will, is there!
All that may not seem relevent to you but it becomes far more relevent when you look at how the "United" States are constructed. Its obvious from
this side of the pond that you are nothing more than a lash up of independent countries held together by a constitution that was created in the days
when you were ridding "Injuns" from the land you seized and keeping the likes of Billy the Kid at bay.
Ok, thats a pretty OTT analogy but, in essence, from our perspective, you view the constitution as unchangeable when it was created for the people by
the people and its the people that can change it because its the people that OWN it.
No, its got nothing to do with anybody outside of America but you will have people giving opinions because the perception is that you are all
Maybe you need a referendum, state by state to ask the PEOPLE what they want, not tell them what they should have. Each state will then decide what it
wants to do irrespective of what the constitution says because in 2013 its no longer that important.
Piers Morgan? Why should we have him back? Who do you think got rid of him to you lot in the first place?
No we have no "right" to give our opinions and the US has no "right" to interfere in Political policy elsewhere in the World.
Everybodys doing it!!! Chill.
PS:Only 30,000 people so far have asked for Morgan to be deported? Thats out of a population of 250,000 million people? Hardly earth shattering is it
or do tails really wag dogs in the USA?
