If I only had a dime for the upteen million times the limp-wristed British Knob-Gits look down their noses, bare their buck teeth, and slowly lisp about how Britain is so much more "civilized" than America because Britain has gun control laws.
By now most everyone has read the many headlines about the Harry Potter actor who got knife stabbed in a scuffle with a "crew" in London. Oh, yes, your majesty -- just so civilized, aren't we? Think for a minute -- how did people fight before there were guns? That's right, with sharp edges. Swords, knives, spears, arrows, the works. Humans have effectively killed each other by the millions with sharp edges for MILLENIA. Any anthropologist will tell you that.
The British are the same people who enslaved the entire sub continent of India. The British are the people responsible for the ideas behind Apartheid in South Africa. We had to fight the British off TWICE to get them to leave us alone (1776 and 1812.) These are the people who chop heads off of queens that don't produce male heirs. These are the people who gave us Jack The Ripper (who didn't use a gun, by the way), The Tower of London, and The Halifax Gibbet (fore-runner of the guillotine.) These are the people who took great delight in drawing and quartering prisoners as late as the 19th century.
British Civilization..... heh. [spat]
A witness to the Potter stabbing in London says he wants to get out of the country. He says he is tired of all the "knife crime" in London (read the article here at The Evening Standard). It seems that the "civilized" British still have people who want to kill people. Thanks to all the gun control laws, British criminals have discovered it's far easier to get and hide knives, and far easier to commit crime with them. Way to go, Britain. You made it easier for your criminals.
It may be a trite phrase, but it bears repeating: GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE, PEOPLE KILL PEOPLE.
Leaving no stone unturned, British literati are now calling for a ban in long, pointed kitchen knives. What's next? Will people have to apply for a "spork license?" Are we going to have to get a permit from the A.T.F. to carve the turkey at Christmas? Will auto mechanics have to pull screws out with their fingers, after their screwdrivers are seized? Will there be a national database of school teachers authorized to use scissors?
All I can say is GIVE ME A F*n BREAK!
Tools of "British Civilization" in THE TOWER OF LONDON.
Just for kicks and grins, I'll even throw in a link to a British anti-war website. The site details all the abuses by British S.A.S. and MI-5 forces inflicted upon the Iraqi people. The site includes graphic photos. There, you see? I can be fair and quote liberals.
British civilization....heh. right.
