Oh dear oh dear another thread with people saying we in the UK are not free and are cowering behind our doors scared because we can not defend
I respect that you lot in the USA want guns, that is your own culture and you can keep it.
Here in the UK we just don't want them, don't need them and If I did want one I could get one legally, I often go to my local gunsmith to buy stuff
for camping and appreciate the craftsmanship in some of his firearms (must admit got my eye an a blunderbus), why do threads like this always turn
into a USvUK when we all know there is only one place which starts with GREAT
GREAT Britain, love my country as much as you guys in the states love your own, so please respect that we know more about our country, the crime
figures, the actual crime which takes place and our wishes that we do not want everyone walking around with AR-15s and we will do the same.
I got mugged once in manchester when I was 19 and the guy had a pistol, he mugged me for a fag

lol, he mugged you for that? why not just take your money, and buy a pack? that's just low
honestly, i don't think anyone here is advocating that everyone in england be armed with AR-15s...and it usually only becomes a US vs UK thing when
people from the UK talk about how wonderful it is over there, and how us yanks are dumb, and less civilized because we have guns....i don't really
think any less of your average subject of the crown, because of their lack of armament...i respect the differences in our societies...i might not
completely agree with them, but i'm not gonna sit here and call you lot stupid, or less civilized, or in any other way imply that you're less than i
am, simply because i disagree with the way your government functions. my beef would be with your government, not you..
ETA: also, you know your country, we know ours.....that's the thing though, we don't know the entirety of our countries....some places are good, some
are less good, and some are bad.....for those of us who live in good parts, and don't pay attention, we might be under the mistaken impression that
our whole country is like where we are....in the town i'm in, i may be completely safe, and have absolutely no need for a gun...but in another town,
it might be so utterly screwed, that i'd be insane not to have a weapon for protection....
it's one of those "your mileage may vary" kinda deals..
