Tougher gun laws? I’m all for it. Any citizen with the right to carry a weapon, found to not be carrying one needs to be gulaged until they learn how to use a weapon properly.

Interesting that they issued a warning about the pictures being graphic. Whomever wrote that statement obviously has not watched TV or any news from Chicago.

Should be 99% NO!

The NEXT administration? If the incumbent is reelected, are they ever referred to as a new administration?

yea, they work in crook county, chicago, in new york and washington d.c. spread the crime around in safe places that are not suffering from drive by shootings, random acts of violence.

i would just as soon have a gun to protect myself and encourage all my neighbors to have one too.

Maybe we should start a poll about whether or not to ship small arms to Britons.

Who CARES what the stinking disarmed-and-proud-of-it Brits think?

The current issue of American Rifleman has an article about Americans donating personal firearms to Britain when Nazi invasion was feared. It’s sadly incomplete with no discussion of how most of those Americans’ guns were not returned after WWII, but destroyed by the ungrateful b@stards according to their despotic gun laws.

Anyway, the author describes a D.C. dinner party where a Brit correspondent utters,

“Americans need to give up their guns. They must become responsible citizens of the world.”

GRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!

At the very bottom of the article:

Law officials ruled that the attack was premeditated as the gunman had visited the building the day before the shooting.

Letters were found on his body - one in English and one in Arabic - which attacked America, France and England over their treatment of Palestinians.

It’s NY anyway. ANYONE would be carrying illegally.

That is what most gun control types don’t get. Laws don’t help because the criminals don’t care about the laws. They’re already carrying illegally and they’ll continue to carry illegally if new laws are passed.

If the old law didn’t stop him, a new law isn’t going to either.

grrr Well, of course, these twits want tougher gun laws in America. They’re so jealous, they can’t see straight.

I love Brits- esp Dame Judi Dench (& the man who played “Lionel”), the late Jeremy Brett, that magnificent woman- Betty Boothroyd, the former Speaker of the House of Commons, the HoC, themselves (speaking of something *I’m* jealous of) these guys are ABSOLUTELY GREAT! but they (the Brits) really need to keep their noses out of our legislative affairs. They’ve got their hands full over there with their own immigration nightmares.

Gun Laws don’t help because the criminals don’t care about the laws.

The stricter the gun laws in your community the more LIKELY their will be a shooting. The more communities Stick to the 2nd Admendment the LESS LIKELY the possibility.

Why? It's simple, The shooters KNOW they are more Likely to GET AWAY WITH IT in the stricter communities. They know they are likely to GET SHOT in places like KENNESAW where folks are more likely to have a gun TO DEFEND THEMSELVES.

The Problem with Liberals is that they Don't feel responsible enough to defend themselves or their families and they don't want you to be able too either.

The Daily Mail has more American than British readers these days. They have started adopting American spellings in their online edition I have noticed, and the adverts seem more geared towards Americans than Brits. Soon, it will be an American paper...

That’s true. There are 2 others, too...ugh, mind’s blank...one of the good ones (very reliable source) Another forum I belong to (& very rarely post at anymore because of all the commies & OFAs) has a lot of people from all over & they are *always* hounding about our gun laws. That’s where that opinion comes from.

I’m truly very sorry if I offended you, sins of solar empire fan. I really do love Brits. I’m not just saying that.

No, no offence caused, just pointing out that thing about the Daily Mail. For what it is worth, I am one Brit who believes that our gun laws should be more like America’s and less like our own.

Agreed. What has it to do with the Daily Mail? The results, whatever they are, are meaningless if the people who voted in it have no way of influencing the policy anyway.

Its ok if the Daily Mail wants to run these polls, but the results are pretty meaningless unless the people who vote are ones who actually have any power to influence the policy. There must be some way in which the poll can only be affected by people with US type internet addresses.

One would think. I sometimes think that the whole purpose of polls is to stir stuff. And that goes for all of them.

Oh I am sure that is true, but I also think there are more sinister motives.

The depressing truth is that polls not only reflect opinion, they also shape opinion. If a majority of people are (or can be shown to be) following a particular line on an argument, then it becomes the "consensus opinion" and many of the undecided or dont care section of the population will adopt through a kind of peer pressure. I'm afraid many people follow the crowd, not their personal convictions, especially on issues that they have no immediate personal stake in. This is, of course, the basis for the political phenomena known as "momentum", and a significant reason why Mitt Romney is the GOP candidate.

Well, as they say...you can fool most people some of the time, and some people most of the time. But you can’t fool all the people all of the time. Eventually the lies and half truths and distortions will catch up with them.
