Scumbags. These POS are so stupid they think rich people have pilers of cash lying around like Scrooge McDuck or something, never having heard of bank accounts.
The reason they get to this point is tha British cops do f*ck all about car crime, instead relying on harder to steal cars and crooked insurance companies.

Good thing they didn't have any firearms, or else the home owner may have infringed on the robbers rights to threaten and harm his son and take his personal belongings. We gotta protect the rights of criminals.

The way it works dumbass, is when you hear the idiot trying to break in, you get your gun. Once they're in, you di not ask what their doing, what they want, or scream :Get Out". You simply shoot.  Get a gun, learn to use it and protect yourself.

Going by the events in the story the guy would have had to be carrying a firearm when he went towards his front door to be able for his possesion of a firearm to be of use. And as the time between hearing the noise that led him to approach his front door and the door being breached was so short he probably wouldn't have time to collect a firearm from where ever it was stored. So for a firearm to be of use in this situation he would have to be carrying his firearm at all times in his home.

Given the fact that Britain's homicide rate makes the U.S. look like some Mad Max-style post-apocalyptic free-for-all by comparison, I would say that, yes, it has made people safer. Or are you saying that because it didn't eliminate 100% of violent crime then it's not worth doing at all?

Also, and I'm not sure about this, but aren't shotguns still relatively accessible to people in Britain?

Yes, you need a shotgun cert and the rules change for under-18's, but there are plenty of places to buy shotguns. You can by all sorts of weapons in the UK but their usage and storage is heavily controlled.

Except that Violent crime is far worse in Britain then in the united states. you are more likely to die from violent crime in the us, but you have a far, far, far, far less chance of experiencing violent crime at all in the united states.

So I guess its up to you, do you like to be a perpetual victim that lives a long life being abused by thugs? Go to britain. Do you want to go threw life with little chance of violent crime happening to you but if it does you may die? Stay in the united states.

personally I rather have little chance of violent crime at all.

I didn't realize it was you in that story.  My bad.

I assumed based on your profile and the general nature of your response you were speaking about a hypothetcal break-in some where in the U.S. as "Fish", and therefore his ghost, are primarily American references.  I'm glad you and your family made it through that exact circumstance and only crow bar and an axe were used.  Were you a U.S. resident the intruders would likely have a gun and your hesitation would unlikely be met with an equally measured response from the criminal.

But good thing you don't live here.  Good on you.

As to the UK being more violent than the US, I would be cautious of any comparisons you see as they tend to use the British Crime Survey for UK figures, not police report numbers like they do for the US. Also, some crimes that are categorised as violent in the UK are not categorised as violent in the US so numbers rarely compare well.

Disagree with the facts doesn't change them from being facts. You have a 1 in 40 chance of experiencing violent crime in the United Kingdom. You have a 1 in 100 chance of experiencing it in the united states.  Again a land ruled by criminals per capita maybe "safe" from gun violence but it does not mean it is a truly safe land.

First of all, the difference between the two is not nearly as drastic as a "little chance of violent crime at all" versus being "a perpetual victim that lives a long life being abused by thugs".

That being said, while part of me might agree with you in principle, I can't help but think that trading a substantially higher overall violent crime rate for a substantially higher homicide rate means that many innocent people will die so I don't have to endure a higher risk of someone beating me up and taking my wallet. I don't think I could look those hypothetical dead peoples' loved ones in the eyes and tell them that.

That is, assuming that there is a direct causal relationship between the two. It's possible that the reasons behind the variations in the ratios of violent crime rates to homicide rates between the two countries are more complex than just the availability of guns to the public.

It's actually 1 in 25 in the UK, and 1 in 50 in the U.S. But "violent crime" includes fistfights, which I gather are all the rage in the U.K. With their heavier police presence and health and safety obsession, I imagine physical dustups get reported more in Britain. Guns don't seem to have anything to do with it one way or the other; U.S. crime rates have plummeted since the 1990s despite no real change in gun ownership or laws.

The UK still has a problem with the bars locking in people and then releasing hordes of drunks into the streets at 3 a.m., after a long night of drunkenness.  Most of the simple assaults occur at this time, and becomes more prevalent during/after Premiere League matches.

/wonder why not many people get shot during these fights?  Oh, right...

Oh, and by the way, the most oppressive and violent places in the world (Somalia, Yemen, Iraq under Saddam Hussein) have the loosest gun laws. EVERY household in Iraq that could afford one owned a fully-automatic AK, and you see how much good it did them.

I like guns and own several dozen of them, but they're not good for much other than entertainment. The odds of my having to protect myself with a gun are beyond miniscule.

It's actually 1 in 25 in the UK, and 1 in 50 in the U.S. But "violent crime" includes fistfights, which I gather are all the rage in the U.K. With their heavier police presence and health and safety obsession, I imagine physical dustups get reported more in Britain. Guns don't seem to have anything to do with it one way or the other; U.S. crime rates have plummeted since the 1990s despite no real change in gun ownership or laws.


Well, we do seem to enjoy our Marquess of Queesnbury rules, don'cha'know, what, what!!!

whizbangthedirtfarmer: atomicmask: Good thing they didn't have any firearms, or else the home owner may have infringed on the robbers rights to threaten and harm his son and take his personal belongings. We gotta protect the rights of criminals.

If I had to choose, I'd rather have a criminal in my house with an axe or a knife rather than a gun, dumbass.


I too would rather have the criminal in YOUR house.  (Just got new carpeting done, would be a shame to spackle it.

If I had to choose, I'd rather not have a criminal in my house. If one did happen to force their way in, I think I'd like to be in possession of a firearm, and not in the position of hoping they will show restraint with my families safety.

But that's just me.

I'd rather not live in a "law abiding gun owner" society if I have to answer the goddamned door holding a gun, dumbass.

Well then move to the UK, dumbass.


That's the ultimate goal (or Canada), once I finish my Ph.D., dumbass.

/really enjoying this dumbass thing

This.

It's a pity the political party fighting to disarm the innocent is also the very same political party that fights against effective sentencing for the guilty. And the very same party that constantly sells out those who work for a living to those who vote for a living and those who simply *take* for a living.
