Gun Control

Gun control advocates often point to the United Kingdom as a place were gun control has worked to reduce gun crime.  That's only partially true.  At the beginning of WWII the British government appealed to the citizens of the USA to send them guns so they could defend themselves against an invasion by the Germans.  They needed those guns because it takes time to produce rifles.  

In the UK police have powers American police will never have. They set up metal detectors on the street and stop people looking for guns. In the UK you don't have the right to self defense, and if you kill a burglar in your own home, you go to jail. There are 300 million guns in the USA and you could never round them all up. 

The police in the UK are carrying guns more and more because immigrants to the UK don't obey the law. Look at the Muslims who cut the head off a British soldier in broad daylight in public!  Gun control only takes power from individual citizens and gives it to criminals and the government; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
