UK has crimes on the statute books as violent that arent in other countries. Burglary is the UK’s biggest violent crime.

UK has a sixteenth of the gun murder rate of the US despite being one fifth of the population.

US has THREE A HALF times the murder rate of the UK.
US has 75% of all serial killers in the world.

LOVELY.

My point here is that statistics are often BS spin, but you can not spin the fact that UK, is leaving itself vulnerable.
The people are disarmed, and even the police are disarmed.

The US currently buying into this notion of disarming, so that we may all "feel safe".

My issue with your attitude is that I reserve the right to defend myself, and I resent people who think that is unreasonable.

No offense intended.

Serial killers don’t usually use guns, not personal enough or bloody enough, evidently.

This is why Brits are subjects and Americans are citizens. So far.

US has 75% of all *identified* serial killers in the world.

Really, you think every mass killer in the entire world has been identified? Laughable.
