UK afraid of 'owning and using' guns?

I can see the glamorizing tilt would be undesirable.

But to pull an ad that might condone OWNING a gun is a strange idea.

Strange to you. Clearly not strange to people in other countries. Or are you saying they all should be like the US?

I can understand their view point but perhaps if they considered just trying it
that it may help improve their overall oral heath (legendary bad teeth)
It may also be a great stress reliever, just being able to cut loose and let her rip
Pretty soon they will feel free to use it out open in the public just like we do.

As far as glamorization - well that's always a problem and the US has been bad about.
Just look how glamourous we have made it all seem . If you doubt this just
look at the impact the DoubleMint Twins had on all of us. They got me hooked.

You have no clue what the rest of the civilized world thinks of gun ownership, do you.

The US is in glorious isolation when it comes to letting firearms into the hands of any deranged homicidal maniac based merely on the specious argument that they are a citizen.

And even when permits are required, it's painfully obvious that any corpulent, one balled, 24/7 internet stalking psycho can get one.

Well the topic subject says 'UK afraid of 'owning and using' guns?' so let's answer that. Speaking as a UK citizen in the UK I suppose I would have to say yes, we are afraid of owning and using guns. To look for reasons why, maybe people should compare the murder rates between the two countries, that certainly keeps the fear in me. More than that though is the phenomenal number of people, including so many children, who die from accidents involving guns in the US. That sort of accident is almost nonexistent in the UK. Yep, I'm afraid of owning and using guns.

Aw, come on! You didn't know that was coming from just reading the word "gun" in the subject?

I think a good new project would be to gather and send ALL OF NUT-JOB'S POSTS TO THE LICENSING BOARD IN PA!

Who would risk their job and continue to allow him to have a CARRY PERMIT?

The reputation of the US in Europe is not "sterling example of 2nd amendment gun ownership rights", it's more like "violent crime capital of the western world"

Not here, Bone Boy.

But obviously, you're not tired of what it is you do.

Boning Otto--it's so easy to do.
