    BWHHAHAHAHA Your own website says you are full of you-know-what.

    Number of Privately Owned Firearms
    The estimated total number of guns held by civilians in the United Kingdom is 4,060,000.

    I would go with your bulls*t story about how English cannot own arms and have no right to. English common law, the English Bill of Rights, and gun laws in England all say you are full of it. And 4,060,000 guns that are owned by private citizens in England all say their gun is proof positive you have no clue what in the world you are talking about.

    Bwhahahaha????? WTF does the estimated total number of guns held by civilians in the UK have to do with anything?

    That 4 million number is just over 15% of the population. United States statistic: 223,000,000 guns. % of population: 67%.

    I can't say but I find it odd that all these guns and all these shootings 1 politician shot in Arizona I think.
    The only other one was shot by Cheney.
    The rest college students , movie goers, elementary school kids and middle school kids and civilians at a navy yard.

    No body even made an attempt at a politician and lets face it the political leaders of America ain't exactly winning any popularity contest

    As I have said before sooner or later a gun is going to get in the hands of the wrong person leagally and they gonna kill somebody that will matter rights or not.
    The 2nd amendment isn't going any where but sooner or later it's going to become really difficult to get a gun in America .
    Tap the breaks now slow down the back ground checks. or like airplane security go to the extreme you can't have finger nail clippers in your pocket today.
    Think that only on a scale of if you want to buy a gun in time for fall start filling out papers in March.

    Oh - I see you live in Der Peoples Republik of Chicago. How is the Obama gun-grab working out for you guys? Crime down to zero now, is it?
    actually she is partially right. British olympic team pistol shooters cannot practice in their home country because private pistol ownership is banned. And I know, I have been to England to shoot (skeet and partridge) several times as well as competed in international shooting events that included English Pistol sooters.

You know why GOP loves NRA and Jesus and DNC loves AFL-CIO and Cinco De Mayo? GOP had first pick. Anyone who thinks Washington is anything other than two teams fighting over money is definitely off base.
    well lets look at the two seminal supreme court cases on second amendment rights

    all the dems (Breyer, Ginsburg, Sotomayor ) voted against gun rights in McDonald along with Stevens who has been a liberal since the Day Ford appointed him. The GOP appointees all supported Gun rights-Scalia, Kennedy, Thomas, Alito and CJ Roberts. Heller we had Souter who was a lefty all along instead of Sotomayor

    bottom line-the democrat appointed Justices have ALWAYS pissed on gun rights meaning if Gore or Kerry had been president in the 04-08 term we would have lost both those cases

UK private citizens own and estimated 4+ million firearms. This is no different than here in USA where we get CCW's, FFL's, etc.

    Gun politics in the United Kingdom - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Firearm licensing

    With a few specialised exceptions, all firearms in the United Kingdom must be licensed on either a 5-year[36] firearm certificate (FAC) or a shotgun certificate (SGC)issued by the police for the area in which they normally reside. Each certificate can list multiple firearms, and the certificate remains valid until expiry even if all the listed firearms were subsequently banned.[37]

    Shotguns (Section 2 Firearms under the 1968 Act as amended) are defined in UK law as smoothbore firearms with barrels not shorter than 24 inches (60 cm) and a bore not larger than 2 inches (5 cm) in diameter, no revolving cylinder, and either no magazine or a non-detachable magazine that is not capable of holding more than two cartridges,[19] plus one in the chamber; shotguns with higher capacity require a firearm certificate. Shotguns thus defined are subject to a less rigorous certification process than for the full FAC; an applicant is not required by law to make a good case for being granted a certificate, but the police may withhold a certificate if they consider that the applicant does not have satisfactory security in place, or granting it would constitute a danger to public safety or to the peace.[38] A certificate holder may possess as many shotguns as can be securely stored.

    When applying for a firearm certificate, justification must be provided to the police for each firearm, and they are individually listed on the certificate by type, calibre, and serial number. A shotgun certificate similarly lists type, calibre and serial number, but permits possession of as many shotguns as can be safely accommodated. To gain permission for a new firearm, a "variation" must be sought, for a fee, unless the variation is made at the time of renewal, or unless it constitutes a one-for-one replacement of an existing firearm that will be disposed of. The certificate also sets out, by calibre, the maximum quantities of ammunition someone may buy or possess at any one time, and is used to record ammunition purchases (except where ammunition is bought to use immediately on a range under s11 or s15 of the Firearms Act).
    thanks for confirming they have no rights to own firearms over there. Lock blade knives no longer can be carried either

    a society that takes more and more freedom from the people is hardly evolving. you are going back to the feudal era where only the ruling class could own crossbows (the one weapon by which an individual commoner could kill a knight in full armor)
