Default New poll on British gun laws

If you can believe this poll, the folks in England are not all that happy with the current gun laws. Maybe they should chat with Piers Morgan about this.

Does not surprise me...

Recent European "hack attacks" by radicals would make any bleating sheep want there own gun.

The question is... will this sentiment stick? And how far are the Brits willing to push it.

No doubt, the chorus of useful idiots in the media will be along shortly to insult the responders to the poll.

Tack

Maybe they should have thought about that after they tried it on the "colonies" they've enslaved over the years.

There is as much chance of a British government allowing handguns back as pigs flying. People can call me defeatist I call it reality and living in the real world and not some parallel universe.

I am not sure what that has to do with the post.

Point is even if the ban was repealed although it would be great for us sporting shooters it still would not address the issue of firearms being allowed for self defence reason's

Any type of self defense would be better than nothing. Even pepper spray is banned in the uk along with stun guns and anything else half useful.

The UK is a strange critter,I hear tell a British Soldiers head was decapitated this week,and another Brit Soldier was stabbed to death yesterday,right on the street in broad daylight,perhaps the Germans will attack again,no that would be a step in the right direction,if they did at this day and time!

I wonder, are guarddogs or fighting dogs very popular in the UK? If I couldn't have a firearm or even some types of knives for self defense, I would take a dog everywhere I went, a very LARGE and vicious-looking dog with a taste for testicles.

Even certain dogs are banned under the dangerous dogs act. But lets get things in perspective I haven't being attacked or burgled or any of my friends or acquaintances so carrying anything for self defence would be well down my priority list.

Manta is an example of British defeatism. I am OK so who needs Freedom? After spending time in England I do agree with him. The English will never allow access to personal protection.
