Brits were largely unarmed before the ban of 1997, when a total of 162,000 handguns and 700 tons of ammunition were turned in by 57,000 subjects nationwide. This represents one person for every 960 Brits. They have never been a nation of handgun owners.

No risk of complacency here anytime soon, if recent trends are accurate indicators.
Exactly...We aint britain....
I agree. But the point is to remain vigilant. Probably no one on this forum will become complacent, but there are plenty of people that aren't as alert in regards to 2A.

Whether its likely to happen here or not, it's important to show people that this is the result of allowing the government to strip us of our rights. The more people we can get to understand that point, the better off we'll be.

Some of those bill amendments in congress were only a few votes away from passing. The margin could be greater.

Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.

I forget to whom I should attribute this quote.

We're 1 gen from that complacency! If we look at how long it to the Teacher Union indoctrinate our mush melon lemurs on Socialism! We'll be luck if it is not at our next Presidential elections!

Our 2nd amendment is based on the mother country's laws at the time of its writing! Do not forget, both Oz and Britian have suffered from this issue!

Exclamation marks soon lose their effectiveness when used to end every sentence.

You mean living under a King? I think our laws are a little different...

Before each and every federal election I have checked each incumbents past bill sponsorship/vote on major issues and all first time candidates campaign platforms. Does it help, yes but not in all cases, Marco Rubio is a good example and has proved that he is not true to his word many times.

I have come to the conclusion that if they are an incumbent I will vote for his/her opponent or the first time candidate in the primaries. Even if the incumbent wins it does send him a message, especially if he wins by a very narrow margin. I am a republican, would I vote for an independent or a Tea-party person? Yep, in a heartbeat.
I can not recall one elected official from my district that has even made a feeble attempt to carry out his campaign promises in the 30 years that I have voted in this district. The worst of the worst is Alcee Hastings.

The present day king of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, queen in this case, is ceremonial only. His or her primary duties are to review corresondence eaceh day from the cabinet and sign if necessary without input and to represent the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland at all ceremonial functions. I do also believe that they have not been ruled by a King in over 300 years. The Prime Minister and and the House of Lords run the country.....

I understand. I was replying to this statement

That sounds like complacency...

Though I have little fear that America will go the same route, let's keep in mind just who and what the youth of this country stand for today. Many are wise, but many more are foolish, and one generation can change things. A LOT.

For example, for you more seasoned folks: would you have believed, when you were 20, that in your lifetime gay marriage would be legally recognized by a state like Minnesota? Or by the federal government? Whether you are okay with that or not, take it as a sign that ANYTHING can change, and quickly.

I think our laws are based on the old English Blackstone laws, or at least can trace their roots to it.

However, our Constitutional rights are not laws, but rights. Not negotiable or up for debate.

Laws change and can be changed.

I believe our government will never stop the attempts at taking away the guns. The only good politician would be the one you forced into office kicking and screaming.

I'm trying to see how gay marriage erodes our rights, and am drawing a blank. As for complacency, will I seem more steadfast and resolute if I speak in extremes and use lots of exclamation marks?
