If I remember right, during WWII when Hitler was threatening to invade England, the English government begged US citizens to send them firearms so they could arm their people to resist the invasion.
The next time England is threatened by an invasion and they ask for our guns, I 'll not give as much as a slingshot. They made their bed, they can lie in it.

(Say a prayer for New York both for it's lefty statism and the probability the city will be hit again)
The British are even dumber than you think.
In 1066 AD, they got overrun by the French. The British had banned ownership of longbows to all but the King's personal hunters. The French arrived fully armed with longbows.
Arrows rained out of the sky at the Battle of Hastings, until King Harold took one in the eye. The British are still whining about it 900 years later - and still banning weapons to the "common people".
We can tell them on good authority to shove their gun control right where we told them to shove their royalty.
