People, it is time to talk about guns.
My entire adult life has been dedicated to the deliberate management of violence. There are no two ways around that fact. My job, at the end of the day, is about killing. I orchestrate violence.
I am not proud of that fact. Indeed, I am often torn-up by the realization that not only is this my job, but that I am really good at my job. But my profession is about directed violence on behalf of the nation. What is happening inside our country is random and disgusting, and living here in England I am at a complete loss as to how to explain this at all. In 2011 the number of gun deaths in the United States was 10.3 per 100,000 citizens. In 2010 that statistic in the UK was 0.25. And do not even try to tell me that the British are not as inclined to violence or that their culture is so different from ours that this difference makes sense. I can say nothing when my British officers ask me about these things, because it is the law.
And for that, frankly speaking, I am embarrassed by our Supreme Court.

From the article:
1. The only guns permitted will be the following:
a. Smoothbore or Rifled muzzle-loading blackpowder muskets. No 7-11 in history has ever been held up with one of these.
b. Double-barrel breech-loading shotguns. Hunting with these is valid.
c. Bolt-action rifles with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds. Like I said, hunting is valid. But if you cannot bring down a defenseless deer in under five rounds, then you have no fking reason to be holding a killing tool in the first place.
2. We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers. That is because I am willing to wait until you die, hopefully of natural causes. Guns, except for the three approved categories, cannot be inherited. When you die your weapons must be turned into the local police department, which will then destroy them. (Weapons of historical significance will be de-milled, but may be preserved.)

LOL what a POS. We already have a foreigner in the White Hut. We don't need your whining a**.
Just the sort that will be the willing SS when called to suppress We The People.
Whats the overall violent crime rate in the UK?
BTW, countries track crime much differently. I believe the UK lumps crimes together and in some cases only tracks the crime if its solved.
Also I know a lot of military officers who are very anti-gun. I think its their training.
Yawn. Another self-important, liberal dumbass. Hopefully he’ll see this thread and try to defend himself.
Bring it, bitch. This will be expensive for everybody. Let's dance.
I was an officer too. 35e/35d. Formerly enlisted I would say most aren’t anti gun.
Just another fifth columnist within our military.
Try and disarm the 750,000 deer hunters that entered the woods of Pennsylvania on Monday with high powered rifles . Kiss your azz goodbye!
No talkin’ required. There’ll be a shiny new item under the Christmas tree. I believe it is stainless and has a 20 inch barrel. But I’m just guessin’. LOL!
Big talk, douchebag. You'll be dead long before I am. And the only thing we'll pry from your fingers is your own d_ck.
On second thought ...
I’ve met a bunch here in Tampa. Don’t know about most but too many for my liking.
Heck the guy across the street sprints inside to call the cops everytime a neighbor with a large piece of land shoots. Even though the cops have repeatedly told him its completely legal.
The people of Great Britain are NOT free men. When you can be put in prison for shooting a person who has broken into your house multiple times, you are not free.
Stay in the UK, you POS.
I’m sure more and more are anti-gun as time goes on. It’s the kind of officer they want. The more we wait the weaker we get.
That has not been my 25 year experience in the military, in fact it's quite the opposite. I consider Bateman a smart assed dangerous idiot not worthy of the oath he is sworn to. In the rather vast world LTCs past and present of which I belong, he is of the fringe minority in his sentiment towards what the 2nd Amendment guarantees to the citizenry at large, not some ad hoc edict to arm the National Guard.
This guy is at the very least, a statist jackass and probably a leftist loon to boot.
