Alex Jones is everything that's wrong with trying to make an argument. Part 2, "America was born on guns and whisky". Ironically, mixing both of those is likely to lead to death. His British accent impersonation was hilarious.
Piers seemed to get very bored very quickly, but i think i would too if faced with that loudmouth. Regardless of whether it was controlled opposition or whatever, the statistics he was shouting so loudly about proved that with control, guns simply aren't needed. Now, i can't say that Britain is shining in any way. Politically, it's become tiresome to endure, and financially, we're in the same state as everyone else.
Crime rates may be the highest in Europe (whether that's true, i'm not sure), but i very rarely hear about shootings. The most 'extreme' one i can recall was a guy who shot a police officer and fired at another on Christmas day a few years ago. In fact, i'm quite comfortable that i could go anywhere in Britain, excluding privately owned land where i'm not allowed, and not be shot. I dare say that with the exception of a few high priority targets, i could go anywhere, even private land, and simply be escorted out. It might end up with me getting a criminal record, but it wouldn't end with anyone dying.
This is why Britain works in my eyes. Guns are forbidden in all regards except the forces, licensed hunters, and armed response units in the police force. ARU's are few and far between, and there's only enough to cover what are otherwise rare occurrences. Things are dealt with by talking in most cases. Sometimes this talking is done with the assistance of backup, but as guns aren't carried by just anyone, most crime is dealt with through gun-free enforcement. You could argue it's a police state if you assumed it was exactly as i just described, but the simple truth is that there's a lot of leniency on what you can get away with.
If you're a law abiding citizen, you've got nothing to worry about. By that, i refer to both being in trouble with the law, or being shot. Sure, there is still a statistical number of shootings in the UK, but the number is very low. This alone lends to the fact that enforcement can work without the need for firearms.
