    Not much we can do about the Brits' problems, but it is a cautionary about opposing the cancer of socialism spreading here.

    Long guns. To shoot luvable rogues with before you are carted off to prison for the rest of your life.

    So be careful. ;)

    I recently watched a British TV series called "Survivors" about the UK after a nearly 100% fatal flu epidemic wipes out almost the entire population. It was interesting, and depressing, to see the British viewpoint. In every episode, the post-government world was being run by people with clubs and the occasional double-barrelled shotgun, but the good people still hated guns and only bad people had them. Among the "good guys" the least good was a convicted murderer who had a gun, but the rest didn't approve of him and, at one point, threw him out of the group, leaving them all defenseless.

    Mostly the "good" people still triumphed by being kind and understanding or some such crap (well, they also got kidnapped, killed, etc., but at an unrealistically low rate). The "good guys" didn't even have the commo sense to pick up a club or kitchen knife to defend themselves, most of the time. The bad guys put guns to their heads in each episode, but couldn't bring themselves to shoot, most of the time. Very British.

    I tend to like British people I meet, individually, but 100% of the ones I have known have been soldiers, American police officers, or competitive shooters. Collectively, their society disgusts me.

    I give it 10 years before France invades the UK and spanks them.

    Oh, you mean like a private bidness? I guess they have the right to be as foolish as they want. ;)

    Next they will ban Mags that have more than 10 pages.

    Why would anyone need a mag with more than 10 pages.

    It's england, what do you expect? I expect to hear in the not too distant future that saying the word G-U-N, used in causal conversation, will cause a panic and have the speaker jailed. I'm telling you, it'll happen. They have lost their minds.

    They are the ones who encouraged France not to beef up its military after WWI.

    I wish someone would make a realistic post movie about that where there are no guns and the world in taken over by hyper testosteroned thugs who rape, rob and burn at will because regular people have no effective means to fight them. Old, young and less healthy people only live on the sufferance of technology. Life in the raw is brutal, violent and for many, brief.

    Horrific deplorable violence on TV is fine but don't let the kids read those satanic gun magazines. You just know how much they rot the brain. :upeyes::upeyes::upeyes:

    I never thought I'd see the day that gun mag's would be considered dirty books.

    I can just hear the British mum's now telling their teenage boys, "Don't be reading those gun mag's, you'll go blind."

    :rofl::rofl:
