Lock your doors, thats your answer? LMFAO, you are aware locks can be picked and rather silently at that. What about outside your home? Just leave to chance I suppose, right?
No, you're NOT doing just fine in the UK. You have an underage pregnancy epidemic

It is a pointless exercise in regards to the USA, to be honest. Over here, very few people want guns so we handle situations in a different manner (for example, you can use excessive force defending your home).
In America, guns are such a part of the culture that it is never going to happen so there is no point fostering an argument either for or against guns - it is what it is.

I do live in Lala land, remember its a place called "not America" where the VAST MAJORITY of people share my opinion that guns have no place in a civilised society.
time and time again the pro gun side talk about guns being a necessary evil and then turn around and say things like "their not bad" you guys make me giggle
Is it really so hard for you believe that people can be anti gun without being brainwashed?
Kinda says something about your mentality right there.
For the record Im not completely anti gun, I understand they are necessary in many cases for hunting and farmers need them to protect livestock etc etc
Im anti idiots who live in cities having guns, basically if you live in a city and you want a gun your an idiot, or paranoid and have drunk the cool aid.
Hope you get a nice big assault rifle for Xmas
Well here in the UK, only the criminals have guns and we do just fine.
Violence breeds violence.
Ok, so lets say that society reaches the point where we say no more guns. They are too dangerous so we will glady turn them in. Alright so now guns in the hands of the citizenry no longer exsists.
A. How do we protect ourselves and our property from those that would seek to do us harm, (criminals who did not turn in there guns)?
B. How would we defend ourselves in the event of tyranny from the govmnt or in a more unlikely scenario foreign invasion?
