    Foreigners say "America needs Gun-Control"




    Summary: - Britain, China, Europe, and even Russian think Obama must act and pass strict gun control. Massacres like this in Dunblane, Australia, and other countries, heavily restricted/banned pistols and rifles.





    Jimmy Davis, a 41-year-old London disc jockey, was saddened when he heard about the latest mass shooting in the United States. But like much of the world after the attack at Washington’s Navy Yard on Monday, he was no longer shocked.

    The United States is a place where “buying guns is like buying sweets from a sweet shop — it’s no problem,” Davis said Tuesday on a busy shopping street in southwest London. “So when we hear there are shootings like this in America, we are not really shocked. Know what I mean?”

    Funny, in all my years growing up in Britain I never had to produce ID and pass a background check to buy sweets.

    Their countries have too many of their own problems to be worrying about our business.

    Well I have a friend in Yorkshire England who suffered the loss of his handgun collection in the confiscatory 1997 handgun ban. It's been 16 years and I'm even still angry over it. I think England needs to do away with their gun control laws.

    So there! They think we need additional restrictions. I think they need fewer restrictions. Our opinions cancel each other out.

    Fixed! We're even.

    A new brainwashing campaign by the media, and the bodies aren't even cold yet.

    No surprise there.

    You got that right. I was stationed in the UK and Turkey, lived in Canada, and I have visited Germany, Belarus, Russia and Costa Rica. They put us down but after seeing what happens in those countries they should mind their own business.

    As you may recall, recently, an off-duty British soldier was hacked to death by Islamic extremeists in the UK. I would imagine the outcome would have been quite different if the soldier was allowed to be armed.

    I'm pretty sure that we'll soon be invading Europe to bring Democracy to them.

    I don't like what they're saying either but saying they'll invade us is pretty far fetched. At the end of the day they're still our allies.

    Opinions are like donkeys, everyone ha...wait, what?
    If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

    Funny then, that we need more gun control, when this shooting happened in the most heavily restricted places in our country. Yes, gun control must be the answer.
