manta49, it was done gradually; psychological conditioning against resisting the established order has been going on for centuries in your parts.

Of course, in your parts, the IRA only defied the British for a measly, what, 80 or more years?

So some are not quite as easily conditioned, one supposes.

Still, I find it odd that a person who hails from just across the water from an island that established the concept of an armed free yeomanry (don't want to be a serf? maintain proficiency with the longbow and respond to the call if we ever need you!) has a hard time with the concept of an armed populace.
