    What's it to you bub? Should we troll the British news for a random example of something we find unappealing about your country; then post it in here as "Another whatsis for the British to deal with?"

    Geez, mind your own beeswax. LOL
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    Maybe the cops should have used that 8 hours to figure out how to terminate the hostile target.

    Unlike America, our news coverage often leads with an international story. That you, and your ilk, find this to be some 'random story' says so much more about your attitudes than it does me bringing it up. Are you aware of the Train crash in Spain? That's the other main story in the UK at the moment. Insular springs to mind.

    Probably higher than it is now. The "black family" is a myth.

    So your country is boring...go out and tip cows, poke a beehive with a stick, or something.

    Hey! Here's an idea; how about starting a thread about how you'd wish there was more gun violence in your own country so you could bitch about it? LOL

    So you find these killings exciting?

    The last time I looked, there was no censorship in place for posting-on issue's around the world-especially 'American-considering we are on an American board.

That does not mean that imposing gun control or increasing gun ownership won't have any effect whatsoever, but I do not believe that it will fix the whole picture. I certainly value the 2nd amendment and exercise it. But, I do think it is a culture thing in America. Something in American culture makes us violent. And I hope that we can definitively identify what that is sooner or later.
    good luck with that. I agree 100%. I believe tighter gun control would make a significant difference, but I don't think that the cause of gun violence in the US is the availability of guns
    Every political good carried to the extreme must be productive of evil.
