Skip to comments.The U.K. could teach the U.S. a thing or two about guns: Guest opinion
Posted on 05/12/2014 7:20:22 AM PDT by rktman
We've spent a lot of time across the pond visiting family and fully understand the U.K. and the U.S. are two countries, as they say, "separated by a common language." But when I look at my sister-in-law's experience raising her two kids, I realize there is a difference.
A big difference.
I spend a lot of time worrying about my kids being shot. She does not. Ever. When my young kids went to play at friends' homes, I'd have to ask the parents if there was a gun because statistically 40 percent of homes with children do. My sister-in-law never has to ask.

The anti-gun propaganda is so awful that even a RINO can’t take it seriously. Another mentally ill leftist having a fit does not make a cogent argument.
The hoplophobe on full display.
In the UK one needs to ask if there are Islamists with a knife in the ‘hood.
Pack up your stuff and move to merry old England.
Hardly an unbiased and “mother perspective” on guns since she is a Board Member of the Brady Campaign. This is a bunch of factless heart tugging tripe. It doesn’t warrant discussion.
Lighten up Heidi. You can always go live with your “sister-in-law”.
She might want to talk to the loony parents of the Columbine killers - you know, the folks who refused to do anything about their increasingly mad-as-hatter children. One didn’t look in the closet of their horrible son’s bedroom to find explosives!
Ban guns? Ban nasty parents!
But she doesn’t worry about soldiers being decapitated in full public view, in broad daylight-nary a gun in sight-does she?
No mention of knives or clubs in merry ol England.
Since she’s a member of Brady, the odds are equal that she is just a “paid endorser” of gun control.
“I spend a lot of time worrying about my kids being shot. She does not. Ever”
No she has to worry about her kids being beaten, raped, strangled, clubbed or knifed.
You can probably count the number of free thinking Oregonians on one hand. The majority, (of at least the ones I’ve met) embrace the Liberal agenda almost like its a Religion. In other words, they’re Kool Aid drinkers.
You mean like shannon dimbulb? Oh, watts. Yeah, that’s it.
And if she really wants to live in a country that doesn’t allow it’s citizens to defend themselves, she has lots of countries to choose from! Leave ours alone!
Well, just generalizing here but, I think it’s mostly the coasties that are so hugely lib. Head east in to the hinterlands and I believe you’ll find a whole lot of conservative folks. Sadly, the coasties have the numbers to outvote the eastern part of the state folks. Much like NV. Vegas outvotes the entire rest of the state.
