More propaganda to the British people from the BBC
 
I'm not sure if you guys will see it but the British Brainwashing Corporation are doing a program called "America's Gun Addiction" . It will be our TV tonight and repeated several times again.

Just a heads up anyway, you might want to see what they have to say about you but be warned, we're expecting it to be very biased (you only need to see what they've called it).

Full program here,

As much as I wish my British Brothers and Sisters had the same rights to own and use guns as we do here in the U.S.A. I don't put much store in what the BBC has to say.

I don't give a damn what the British, or anyone else thinks about my "gun addiction"

Last I looked, the Brits don't get a vote on out goings on here across the pond.
One (Former) Brit who get's it: http://www.americanrifleman.org/articles/iain-harrison/

Quote:

On Sept. 13, 1997, the stone-faced Brit left his military post and marched into a Warwickshire, England police station dressed in full uniform to surrender his handguns to agents of the State.
I deliberately left it to the last week of the time graciously granted by the Government and went to the police station in uniform, Harrison said. I dont think anyone else noticed the irony, but I wanted to make the statement to myself if no one else. It was a feeling any American shooter or military officer would find hard to imagine.
Harrison had spent almost all of his life around firearms. He began at age 10 with a .22 rifle, moved to competitive shooting as a teenager in IPSC and spent his 20s fighting for his country overseas. The ban was an unwarranted punishment for this self-proclaimed lover of all things firearms, a groundless infringement on his rights.

it continues...

The BBC should
(a) remember how dangerous it is to mess with an addict-
(b) remember that the American value of their opinion was decided the last time in 1812
(c) Apologize for the firearms DONATED by private, American gun owners to arm the Home Guard in WW 2. Seems there was shortage at the time.

In the meantime, what is it like there on the Isle?

When push comes to shove, the question is...Who has the guns?
