Response to LeftishBrit (Reply #7)

8. My 16 year old son gave me this link

Since he's a rebellious teen by nature, I cut him some slack on his views on gun control. I obviously cannot force him to agree with me, and one day he may be more "liberal" on gun control.

I am in full accord with what Brits do, honestly. Obviously your country is doing something right when your gun violence rate is so much lower than ours. I am not aware of Brits saying they cannot defend themselves at home, so again, I think your policy is the right one.

The knife issue was interesting to me. I am NOT an NRA member or in full sympathy with their views, but yes, I was curious about knives. I would never come here to criticize the UK policies, but yes, since UK is different than USA, I do get curious. For the record, I think your society is much more civilized in general than ours.

I hope all this helps. Thank you for your time, sincerely.

eta: I am a very curious person by nature so I do ask questions when I think I can get away with it.

one more eta: I really am just a supremely curious Anglophile. I've been to London twice and loved it, and to Frome (south of Bath) once. My questions are simply curiosity. I know others come here and to other sub-forums to stir up trouble or get ammunition, but honestly, I am simply extremely curious. I have no way of proving this, but yes, this is the absolute truth.
