55. go to the horse's mouth

Secular Motion asked: What Do British People Think About the U.K.ís Gun Restrictions?

English are predominantly opposed to loose firearm availability; Here's an English based message board based out of London, 'metrogees - my fast forum', which has UK members ops on American firearm laws as well as their own, on occasion;
(I used to post on it for about 5 years but stopped couple yrs back, jimmy the one might still be listed as a 'member' - remember, jimmy the one is an English naval term, a first lieutenant on every RMS ship of size);

Belgian contributor fata: Still who are Europeans to criticise Americans? It's their choice to live in a country that makes it super easy for anyone to flip and go on an orgy of gun-fueled carnage.
It's every American's god-given right to be able to grab an arsenal of weaponry and go and blow away a dozen of their fellow citizens. It's in the 2nd Amendment.


this mass shooting in Washington...something that will repeat itself over and over until Americans decide they have had enough and do something about it. My own sense is that this last slaughter has been met with a great deal of ho hum another shooting indifference. Likely we'll be having this same discussion again in the near future.

1 It is the inalienable right of every American nutter to own a gun.

2 It's deeply ingrained in the cultural psyche. You'd be amazed at perfectly amiable people in conversation suddenly go on the defense if you question gun ownership.

3 Re: More Gun Madness in Texas Such gun "incidents" are hardly worth a mention since they are almost commonplace and nothing is going to change any time soon. They appear to be an accepta ble part of the right to own a gun in American society. The one thing they have in common appears to be an inordinate fear of being confronted by someone with a gun. They never see themselves as part of the problem....since so often it is people just like themselves who flip out and start shooting.
