Machine guns? Where have you been traveling?
I don't know if I used the correct terminology but when I visited Egypt there were plenty of AK-47s being carried around and in airports in the UK police carry sub-machine guns. Despite the fact I have shotguns in the house and go out shooting with them I still don't like being around people carrying guns, just as I don't like being around people holding knives (even if it's someone you know in the kitchen); it's not that I'm afraid, I'm just uncomfortable around them.
No one wants to have a debate about it because to you all its all one sided. I've heard it before, everyone is safe and the shootings are so minimal that they pretty much never happen.
And yet you keep provoking these debates, despite the fact that people have demonstrated statistically and factually that the UK is a safer place in large part because of firearms restrictions.
You don't want a debate because you want it swept under the rug so it suits your point of view which is there is little gun violence in the u.k.
That couldn't be further from the truth if you tried! Most people are entirely happy to debate the subject, it's just that you refuse to recognise the points people like myself make and instead repeat the same unsupported nonsense again and again. Nothing is being swept under the rug. But factually there is very little gun violence in the UK, especially
in comparison to the US.
The UK is far from a safe place, it has the highest crime rates of all of western Europe...
What you fail to recognise is that the UK is a safer country than the US, which is especially relevant when you're advocating the failed US policies as a 'solution' to our problems. Nobody claimed that the UK doesn't have violent crime or gun crime. But people do
feel safer walking around. Whenever I make points I source out statistics and provide sources to support my argument - you just make baseless accusations and then accuse everybody else of having the problem.
