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.
I have no problem with a armed population. I just don't think that if there is some gun control in America there is some master plan the disarm the public so they can be exterminated or something similar as some seem to think.
Having said that. Would more guns here have helped the situation over the last 30 years.
