No offence taken..... Like that statistic though.....
I'm a firm Believer that our streets would be a lot safer if we could defend ourselves.
Did you know the first gun control act in the UK was around 1890?
After that around 1920 when the government of the day thought the returning troops (WWI) might try to over throw them?? What a suprise there then!
Then a similar machine gun act to yours around 1936, even as late as the 1960's you could visit your local police and get a permit to carry a firearm for self defense.
See it doesn't take long to dis-arm a nation.......

America will get disarmed. 80 million gun owners only 1 million of us will refuse and when looking down the barrel of a martial law solider another 700K will stand down and turn in their weapons.

I have a good friend, originally from Scotland. Came to the US many years ago. Worked for the World Bank (IIRC) here. Married a U.S. citizen, an Army Capt. They are still married.

I think that about covers it; I don't think you will ever get a reply, but it is good that you sent the letter anyway...
