    Same BS rhetoric different continent

    You know I have family ties to some rough area's of europe and its always a fun conversation when it comes to my choice options of defense. I always like this line its almost as good as granny saying johhny was a good kid.

    "They say they are carrying them for protection, but if no-one carried them, they wouldn't need them."

    When will people realize that laws don't stop criminals they just hinder the rest of us.

    As a side note at the end of my trip I left my benchmade with a cousin who was absolutly in awe that it was perfectly legal to buy in the US. I could live in europe but i love this country.

    The problem isn't the weapons or lack thereof, but the Government won't let people defend themselves. If they do they get prosecuted for assault on the criminal. Sometimes they get more time then the attacker. I think the British Goverment wants a country of cowards. I am surprised More people don't try to come to this country.

    When Britain had an island on the other side of the world, for criminals, it had a solution. They need to find another island, for the purpose, one without Carnival Cruise and British Airways ... then rent the cajones use it. Otherwise, without any other viable answer to crime and criminals except to place bans on upstanding citizens, the flusher will keep swishing faster.

    I think Its funny that there is an ENTIRE COUNTRY that PROVES banning guns won't stop violence.

    Oh just wait. They'll ban knives. Then you'll see marches against 'Illegal Knife Crime' and people calling for the banning of blunt objects. New Labour won't be happy until people cant carry their hands or feet outside without a license.

    This from the country that just adopted Sharia Law for civil and some criminal case.

    One possible role model for young men is Olympic boxing gold medallist James Degalle, who attended to offer his support.

    He said one of his friends was stabbed seven years ago. "It's got to stop. I call people who carry knives cowards. I could have gone that way. But how about being a man in the boxing ring instead?"
    I wonder how cowardly he feels all those men and women in uniform are for carrying knives, guns, grenades, etc... to keep him safe at home at night so he can "be a man in a boxing ring"?

    I have been reading about this situation in the UK for years. I Think if we can show our countrymen, to their satisfaction, the situation in the UK, then gun control would be far less of an issue today. The part of the blogsphere I hang out in (Kim Du Toit, Rachel Lucas, Cold Fury etc.) frequently link to simmilar stories. Most of America does not hear about this because of the media gatekeepers biasedly not reporting this.-Jay
