Personaly I think that telegraph poll is useless to be honnest even though I agree.
Ok view on UK and gun control?
Yes they should relax things enough to allow home ownership of hand guns. As long as they were safely stored and registerd.
And I think a large number may agree.
But I can say that I think the attitude would be:
No to conceal carry as it would not go well with our drink and youth crime problem. It would make that worse. We would need to sorth this problem out first.
No to millitary assualt weapons.
But you have to remeber what works in the USA may not work in the USA because of local problems.

I don't know where you get your news from but NO we do not want to give up our guns . The United Nations Agenda 21 has a section dealing with Population Reduction , and they are quite serious about it . Critical thinking says that their prime objective is not to keep the population safe and growing by banning guns . No ! They want to limit our ability to resist their coming draconian CHANGE as Obummer put it . That CHANGE means something that we rejected for what we chose in the first place . That means we will not like living under it . Just like in the old days in the UK , specifically England where the Royals were above the law and the Commoners were dirt poor and over taxed and oppressed you people were happy and we would fight against it . That's the way you are going and we will not .

According to the list above, the UK is just over twice as violent as Canada per 100,000 head of populace, but Canada's population has a sq mile for every 8 people, whereas the UK has 1,000+ crammed into its sq miles. Everybody seems to ignore the differences in population density between nations, but surely that has to be a significant factor?

The UK police are paid to keep violent crime down and so they try and make every crime sound like its violent so they can keep their funding
You Brits call us in the USA stupid and make degrading remarks about how backward we are ,
but you can not take what you dish out .
We do not want to be knuckled under by some people who call themselves our government like the Brits did .
. We don't need them to try to redirect our American dream into the NWO debacle that you seem happy with .
Why did you people even fight the Germans , they were backed by the same people who are attacking you now .
Our culture our ways so STFU.
Do what you like in thge USA but keep the hell away from my country!
Concentrate on your own country
So, half of the four largest concerns in the UK are immigration and terrorism. How's progress along those lines coming?
Talk to almost any Briton and I reckon the vast majority of them would say that by far the four biggest concerns at present are Immigration, EU, austerity cuts and related issues and extremism / terrorism.

And it's good that it's strict - hence why we have less gun-related incidents and less shooting sprees - even when you look at it relatively and change the variables to control for population sizes in respect to America and Britain.
