Don't think it's about education. IMHO, it's about CONTROL.

And yet, the reverse has never stopped the Brits from commenting on American anything.

On this forum, British and non-US members have generally not commented on US politics, except to politely correct misapprehensions about our laws and customs.

Or do you mean the press? It doesn't seem unreasonable for foreign media to report on the domestic politics of a Superpower.

B. Canada has restricted airguns for years, and it doesn't seem to have had a profound effect.

And an afterthought:
III. Restrictive gun laws in much of the English-speaking world hasn't diminished essential liberties in any of those countries. Only Americans seem emotionally unable to accept that there is life - a good life at that - where firearms don't outnumber children better than 3 to 1.



The sentiment is strong in this country because there are still many parts throughout this country, (I would know from traveling all over it due to my military service) that are very remote. There are certain towns where there are no police. These are small towns, on major highways. And some other towns, there are very little police. What happens when there is a break in with an armed assailant? Also, many of these towns are many miles from any food source. So options include shooting your own food, growing it, a mix of both, or driving a great distance to buy it, which gets expensive.

I for one am opposed to anymore gun regulations aside from perhaps a universal background check. But here we love our ability to fight back when attacked and easily hunt our own food. =) Just a different perspective.
