Manta, I am not really sure what you are getting at with your post. It is proven that here in the US the more the Citizenry at large is armed the less crime happens. Your culture perhaps is different, and you can accept the yoke that European style socialism has placed upon you but those views and ideas do not hold much sway for the average American citizen. There is a skewed view of what Americans think due to the control by the Progressives of our main stream media, but I can assure you that what you see in our media is not really representative of what we think and feel.
The average criminal here states that his biggest fear in states that honor our rights is that they will die in commission of their crime. Further, a very large portion of crime takes place between criminals although I not sure if this data is tracked. Yet over there in the UK there is an epidemic of crime going on according to your own press.

In the U.S., only 2 per cent of the population suffered an assault or robbery.
Firearms owners are among the most law abiding people there is. Just look at the data from Texas on persons with a CCW committing crimes. Less then 0.5%-0.2% of all crime in TX is committed by CCW holders. This would tend to be a data point leading to the conclusion exorcizing our Second Amendment rights leads to a reduction in crime.
More guns, less crime.
What I am wondering is why would someone who seems
uninterested in personal firearm ownership is doing slumming with us hairy knuckle colonial barbarian types? I could be wrong, but it feels a bit like I am getting trolled. Perhaps I am being too thin skinned, if so I will preemptively apologize for any offense given.
You folks over in the evolved and cultured side of the Atlantic can keep your high crime rate and I will be happy to keep my firearms and lower crime rate while I knuckle walk around like a Chimp.
