Default UK asks why guns aren't banned in US?

Was doing some searching for guns that start with the letter t for another thread on this board and for some reason this came up..interesting read...

This last post from it made me chuckle...

They just want us to get rid of our guns so they can try to take their colonies back.

Well... We beat them twice already. I'd think they would've gotten the hint by now.

Hopefuly nobody.

As for the question of why guns are not banned in the US, because we won, both times.

They have no recollection of their own history, nor have read the writings of some of the great thinkers of history. Aristotle thought it was quite normal for people to bear arms and Machiavelli keenly observed that an armed citizenry would be a disciplined people. It is also apparent that many Europeans have forgotten their own history, where the seizure of firearms by the Third Reich ultimately resulted in the Holocaust, and other events centuries back such as the Assize of Arms of 1181 under Henry II in England. Under the Assize of Arms, there was a discriminatory provision where Jews could not bear arms. Guess what happened to them?

They are ignorant of their own history. In time, they will repeat those tragedies.

Eh. Who cares what they think. Europe is even further along toward being a failed state than the US is. I think it's great how they infer we Americans are a bunch of knuckle dragging neanderthals yet they have depended on the US for their security for years. We should pull all .mil personnel out of Europe and let them fend for themselves.

As to the "I have often wondered if the Apollo 11 crew took guns with them to the Moon, I find it hard to imagine Americans going anywhere without guns." comment...

Well, Americans did that, not Europeans. American stormed the beaches of Normandy, not Europeans. Americans invented the airplane, personal computer, telephone, radio, TV, GPS, the DVR, automatic transmission, laser, and f'ing bubble gum. EUROPEANS DIDN"T. So until you asshats start providing the world with more innovation than Americans do how about you STFU about us?

Sure wish I could post that on the other forum, but I'm not going to sign up for it.

Why?

Because in the 234 years since we stopped being British, America has gone from being a colony (think puerto rico, or the virgin islands) to being the most influential and powerful country in the world. We are a country of free will and rights and god help the regime that infringes on either.

England, which became a unified state in 927, after the settling of the Germanic tribes, began being influential in the 1400s. To them we are the little nation that could. Young, impetuous, and full of vim. To us they are stodgy, old, proper, and aristocratic.

The point is, England truly believes (wrongly, IMHO) that outlawing firearms is the proper, civilized, evolved way to deter crime; specifically murder. However, violence is ingrained in humans as a species, and since guns were outlawed in the UK, knife crime went up. If they outlawed knives then clubbings would go up, etc, etc. Basically, people will find a way to kill each other no matter what a piece of paper says.

America's forefathers recognized that A: Firearms allowed a populace to protect itself against tyranny, whether foreign or domestic. B: People are responsible for their own actions (just think what would have happened to them if the revolution hadn't succeeded and realize how ballsy this was) no matter the device they use to enact their actions. and C: A nation based on liberty, rather than feudalism and hierarchy, must be based on protecting the rights of the individual before the government.

So the question isn't, considering that in 234 years we have preserved our right to bear arms because people are responsible for their actions - a pretty evolved way of thinking, "Why doesn't America ban firearms?"; but rather, "Why does the UK continue its ban on firearms even though statistical data and common sense show that there is nothing gained by doing so?"

Just to be fair with history, many of those inventions were from first generation Europeans in the US. Essentially, it's possible the inventions could have been invented in europe. Like the first auto. But, the matters remains, the EU is a pisshole. Like San Fran; nice to visit, wouldn't want to live there.

As to Normandy, US forces made up most of the invasion forces, but the Brits, Scots, Free French Canadians, Greeks, Czech, Polish and Belgium forces were right along side us, with some air support from the Aussies.

pretty sure the PC, DVR, GPS, laser, and bubble gum weren't invented by 1st gen immigrants. I could be wrong though. There are tons of innovations that have come out of the US. I fear we are on the downward curve of that trend now as we follow in the footsteps of our European cousins but that is another subject for another thread.

How come people in the Uk are such big fat pussies that sip on tea instead of drink coffee? And why do they like getting punked by their politicians and criminals? These are the questions the Brits should be asking themselves. Sometimes I wondered why we even saved their sorry asses in world war 2.

Yep, the good ol' USA sure had a long run on modern inventions, but that has surely slowed.

For the record, Marconi invented wireless radio transmmissions while he lived in London after seeking funding there when Italy didn't work out for him. And Alexander Graham Bell, who was Scottish, started his inventions in England, and set up his first shop in Canada. He likely did not get around to messing with his inventions for several years, during which time he came to Boston, because he was heavily invested in working on speech for the deaf, working at several schools for the deaf from around age 23. It's more coincidence that he invented the telephone in the US (noting he originally patented it in England) due to his age, not because of some sort of economic influence.

Nonetheless, I am certainly proud of the US for it's contributions to modern society. And hopefully I never see the end of that.

This is actually funny, as explorers typically did take weapons with them for most of human History

A few years back while in England I did a "ride along" with a "BOBBY" who had the year before done a "ride along" with me. He said something I found disturbing. In the UK you have NO right to defend yourself if being victimized.(?) Yes, a person can be arrested for doing so.

Their thinking is if you do not resist then the criminal has no need to injure you. Hence why do you need a gun?

I know the soviets took guns into space, but for protection from the siberian wolves and other preditors.

I don't give a fly'n rat's *** what those pathetic British think about gun possession in this country. The Brits would do well to MYOB and start addressing the problems they have in their own country, i.e. the MUSLIMS!! If they are not careful Buckingham Palace will be a mosgue in 50 years!!

If we cared what the Brits thought we wouldn't have kicked them out in the 1700's. Who cares what they think now? They are not an empire, a sea power, an economic power, or any kind of power. They are a little island with a snotty attitude. The only reason we bother with them is that if we have to launch another attack against Europe it would be convenient to have an island to stage from. And if push comes to shove, we won't really care what they think about THAT either.

Go back to the first page. A mod from the usa tries to explain things....to these little kids. These kids are just echoing their media coverage.
