    That's why guns should be banned in the USA or people think they can go shoot and kill anybody. You may argue the whole protection issue but I live in the UK where guns are just not this easy to obtain even the police don't have them but still I feel safe enough. Guns just increase crime so ban them so nobody can misuse one again
    If the police don't have guns how did they shoot that bloke in Huddersfield the other week?

      No, but they blocked roads for the New Years' celebrations, akin to tighter firearms regulations.

        I should of edited that, it is not clear whether he was ever diagnosed with any mental illness but he was given a psychiatric evaluation, if he was never declared legally mentally ill by a judge then nothing could be done without violating his rights if he was then it is likely that the system failed to work together and gun laws couldn't of stopped it

        No they aren't, and even if they wanted to they have a problem just as big as those who want to ban the guns

        How long until the gun enthusiasts tell us that the problem was that everyone in the airport and on the aircraft didn't have guns?

        That seems to be the usual response to mass homocide caused by a gun.

        Ridiculous comparison given that trucks actually have a purpose that doesn't involve wounding or killing people.

        Yeah well the best time to start that process was 100 years ago. The second best time is right now.
        Only from our perspective.

        There's almost no political will over there to do it, and huge numbers of the population are pro-2nd amendment. It would be like an atomic powered Brexit vote with guns. There are also fairly compelling practical reasons for the 2nd amendment.

        The only parallel I can draw would be with banning pubs or alcohol here. It might seem a bit odd and silly to an outsider, but could cause major social upheaval if anyone tried to do it.

        The purpose of a gun is to propel a projectile at a target.

        I think if we had something inbetween American and British gun laws it would be good, the gun culture in the UK is pretty big and I myself own a few guns but I am still sad I cannot get some of the guns I want

        That target being a person, the intention to inflict a wound or kill.

        The target could be anything. Animals are a particular favourite among gun owners.
