Fucking hell, a) at that Alf and b) I forgot this place was a fierce hotbed of discussion for years and in trying to catch up with what I’ve missed, I just was numb to the pointless slanging that highjacks every thread.
It’s the catch 22 though, no President can ever get elected or get a bill through to enforce proper gun control because they’ll lose the bill and lose any chance of a second term.
It’s fucking scary in the modern age in supposedly, the most civilised country in the world,
That literally millions of daft cunts STILL think “it’s what a load of cunts wearing wigs hurriedly throwing together a document on how to run a country after surprisingly winning a war of independence thought” is set in stone and can not be altered in anyway to apply to modern society.
Yet the same people want a country who’s foundations are built on being a nation of immigrants, to change laws and fuck everybody out who isn’t white. What the fuck is wrong with people.
When Dunblane happened, we went that’s fucking awful, no one needs a hand gun. Ban. Done. How can people still think there’s a need for crazy assault rifles of military grade and even above standard military issue???
That’s why I thought there’s no issue with arming bobbies in England as standard, because it’s a different mindset.
Yet I can see how some of their attitudes could bask fire.
But it’s mad that, although less densely populated, NI has a large standing police force and why, the odd time certainly over the last few decades, whenever there was civil unrest on the Main land, we’d send over our armoured land rovers etc.
But the current force, like even community cops, some of them you wonder how they got the job, eg there’s a good few overweight, a few tiny females I’ve met, I don’t mean that in a sexist way, but literally, there surely has to be s high standard of physical requirements, but every single cop over here has a gun, every one.
And you NEVER here about cops firing shots, even when shot at it getting petrol bombed.
It’s a fucking strange one but it’s definitely an entitlement thing in the states, that in my personal opinion is more of an issue that people worried about personal protection.
If I lived in a ropey neighbourhood in a major city, I’d probably, sadly feel safer with a small personal protection handgun.
But if I lived in a quiet rural community in the States I don’t think I would and I DEFINITELY would not feel the need for 3 assault rifles, a shotgun, a snipers rifle and 6 handguns!!!!
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.
