What was it like before people lost their freedom in England with guns?
My opinion is it is that gun crimes are a cultural problem with those persons. The rest of us shouldn't be penalized because of a few cracks. It is sorry that England has let the diseased minded run England instead of sending those who need a shrink to shrinks and leave them in prison until they understand that other people have rights, too. Those who use violence against the rest of us are a problem with or without guns. Guns are a real problem in the US some places (small areas). Taking guns away is defeat and trying to put a bandaid on a much larger problem. Taking guns away is looking the other way instead of fixing the real problems.
