Here it is.
Max – As a Brit my views on firearms match yours and if the opportunity to legally move to the USA presented itself to me, I would leave at the drop of a hat. As far as Ruperts go, you seem pretty affable.

I’m a Brit too! However, I have to say that it disturbs me that firearms of the nature that we’ve seen recently in mass shootings are available so liberally. As for the UK. I lived there most of my life, and with no serious consequences from violence. But since I moved to the US I have been victim, although escaped from a series of serious incidents, none of which would have been aided by the use of a gun. the worst of which was being held hostage in my own bedroom by a masked intruder, who tried to rape and strangle me for 3/4 hour. If I had a gun beside my bed, guess who would have seized it first! Under the bed you say? Well how can you get to it if you are held by the neck. The FBI told me that talking my way out of it saved my life. Had I lost my temper or screamed I would have been a dead duck. This was only one of the many incidents that have happened to me. particularly living in Miami. However, my father was held at gun point while reading the Sunday paper in his home in France. He led the man to his safe, and inside the safe he grabbed his gun and turned it on him. In this scenario it helped. I never heard Piers Morgan say that he disavowed the 2nd amendment. He’s concerned about children’s welfare in the classroom, and I rather agree with that. If we all arm ourselves to the teeth, by the law of averages, there will be more shootings. I’m not convinced of the argument to escalate the use of firearms for protection. I know someone will shoot down this argument, but I’m simply adding experience to the debate!
As a Brit I feel as if you should have stayed in Britain or you should consider leaving the U.S and returning home if you wish to live in a 0 gun country. Just because you feel the need to be defenceless and feel that you’re capable of talking your way out of your family being killed, that does not give you the right to seek the same for everyone else.
If you wish to be disarmed then that is entirely your prerogative, stop projecting your own politics on to everyone else. And you are beyond help if you feel that Piers is worthy of being defended. He is nothing but a gobshite who undoubtedly has armed guards at his 2 Los Angeles addresses.
Max – Please excuse the outburst and for shitting in your comments section.
Sorry but correction to above comments, my father was held a knife point in France – slight difference.
“If we all arm ourselves to the teeth, by the law of averages, there will be more shootings.”
Not so – gun crime is down, media just inflates it. What burns me up is if you don’t like guns that is ok but libs want to impose their views on the rest of us. Gun haters have lots of freedom here to live in the gun free zones of DC, NYC, Chicago, or LA.
I also don’t like the arguments that things are so great and safe in Europe – not so! France has been burning up for years – the media has agreed not to cover it. The Swedes are in the S— now with violence and rioting. Last time I checked we don’t have a history of death camps here in the USA.
Just some thoughts sparked by above passages.
