    So i was just playing my delightfully quaint game Boom Beach on the iphone adn embedded within the game is a chat function so you can talk to other members of your task force. The majority of my task force comrades are American and inlight of the recent shooting in Texas a lot of the remarks were on gun laws with one striking me quite quaintly
    'look at england to see what happens when citizens are disarmed. not good at all'
    I found it interesting that they seem to think since Britain 'disarmed' its citizens after two massacres we are somehow worse off...
    What do you lot think on it?
    I mean personally i have no objections persay to the current gun laws, i do mildly object to the ban on hand guns for any reason.. I see no reason why they cant be governed in the same manner as rifles or restricted only to military ranges but hey ho.

    Not good at all? LMAO the USA has 32.57/mill deaths with fire arms while we (UK) have 0.236/mill. They have x138 more than the UK lol. I feel sorry for their way of thinking.

    He went on to say everyone should carry weapons and qualified he carries a cx4 in his truck at all times :rolleyes: they seem to mistake cause and effect and accidentally reverse it.
