    The absolute absurdity of that question says all that needs to be said.

    Might as well admit that you have no faith in the police if you need dangerous weapons to keep you safe

    There will always be criminals, having guns will not make a difference.
    Not true, most criminals are cowards by nature, simply having an armed would be victim is a deterrent, no matter what the "victim" arms themselves with, a gun does nothing more than adding range to defense.
    Besides, i would not want my neighbours having guns.
    Not to be offensive, but as it isn't my business what my neighbors do in their homes, what business is it of yours what your neighbors own in theirs? The only difference is when your neighbors effect your space. I, as a gun owner would willingly defend my neighbors if they were being attacked in my vicinity, I would hope if your neighbors were armed and you were in danger they would extend you that same courtesy.

    If required illegally the laws would hardly matter to the shooter now would it?
    That's the point, the laws don't work in their stated intent, they merely make it difficult or impossible for the law abiding to exercise ownership of the same means the criminals have.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Emergency responders in my city(possibly a state law) have a mandatory minimum response time of 8 minutes, it only takes 2 seconds for a successful attack on a victim when an attacker shows no restraint, the math is not on the side of the police, no matter how professional they are or how well they do their jobs, it's not a faith argument, it's a reality.

    Police are historians, tasked with documenting the slaughter of you and your loved ones.


    The police have no duty to protect you. I do not put my life in the hands of others, criminals or police.

    Go to a shooting range? Inside Scotland and areas outside of London. You can go hunting and shooting.
    Phone the police?

    Not true, most criminals are cowards by nature, simply having an armed would be victim is a deterrent, no matter what the "victim" arms themselves with, a gun does nothing more than adding range to defense.
    I doubt it, if guns were legalised. I bet there would be a increase of crime rather than a decrease.

    That's the point, the laws don't work in their stated intent, they merely make it difficult or impossible for the law abiding to exercise ownership of the same means the criminals have.
    No one wants gun.
    It ridiculous to own a gun in London, going to go pigeon hunting?

    You can own a gun inside UK, it is just hard. No one bothers.

    When the AWB expired, there was no uptick in crime.
