Let me ask you this. If someone came to your house and claimed that all of your stuff was theirs, would you not try ti fight back? Also keep in mind that if this was a game of who can roll the higher number on a 6-sided dice, a gun is a +4 to your roll.
May aswell make the topic even more controversial...
i would fight back, but i would not kill a man because of it. i personally find guns pointless in the city, im 20 and i have never seen a real gun before.
The U.S and U.K are very similar in most aspects, but firearms are where we are at the other ends of the scale.
1 believes everyone should have guns even children, and the other believes only certain people should have guns.To own a shotgun in the U.K
Pretty much anyone who isn't a criminal or with significant mental illness can get one. You need a license, and to get that you have a background check, an interview with the police and to show a safe where they will be correctly stored. You can get either double barrelled shotguns or pumps that hold 3 shells in total, Also need to give a reason for the gun.How to own a gun (Including fully automatic which are ilegal in U.K)
A background check is conducted only in store purchases. There, gun buyers have to fill out a form from the ATF, or the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
Required information includes: name, address, place of birth, race and citizenship. A social security number is only "optional," though it's recommended.
But none of this is required at gun shows which are very common (29 was booked for last years farthers day)
The strangest part to me is that the president tried to make a law to fix the loop hole in gun shows that can sell without background checks, yet the congress denied it...
