This is what happens when it's done right.

Yeah, it's grim here in Blighty, and getting grimmer. But are you sure you'll still be so much better off after 4 years of President Obama and a Democrat House and Senate? I'll bet they'll carry the handbasket a pretty fair distance, one way and another.

Yup, John. I've been calling (formerly) Great Britain "the petri dish" because it's the laboratory where they test the stuff they're going to foist on us here. We're just a few years behind you, and gaining rapidly.

9 years in the Lebanese army? I doubt that's the first time he's seen a guy carrying a bomb.

Yeah, I know a few Brits. Two of them are ex-military, and they still think the gun banners have it right. Doesn't make any sense to me.

I blame state media. When everyone watches the party line, don't be surprised when they're all in line with the party.

Indeed I was in the UK military - a while ago now - and it wouldn't be difficult to find gun ban types there for sure. But there is a sizeable minority of the public for RKBA in spite of the relentless propaganda and indoctrination. I don't see signs of the party line moving tho - there is no political party here that isn't foaming at the mouth to ban more stuff, some more. In any case, increasingly UK law is actually the result of dictats coming down from the EU which isn't in any meaningful sense democratically accountable even if UK citizens got a clue in sufficient numbers for it to look like it ought to matter to someone in charge.

Most of my countrymen I know will support this kind of nonsense but those I know who are ex-military, or the acquaintance who is a serving police officer, would be in favour of getting law-abiding members of the public tooled up to defend themselves. A shame they (like me) are in the minority.

I can tell you why your comment wasn't approved Kevin - you questioned their ideology and they recognized that. Very unsporting old chap.

Something to chew on. Since Britain effectively abandoned religion - their own local brand of Christianity in particular - Brits have found they have to believe in something. Hence, they fill the void with liberal clap-trap. Zealots of ideology are no different from religious zealots.
