I realise that the American constitution allows an American to bear arms. But this was written in the Constitution about 240 years ago, and it was felt necessary at the time, because the country then was mostly unsettled, and people lived in remote places., and the law hadn't reached these places, so people had to bear arms to protect themselves and their families.
However the usa is no longer a wilderness, but a very modern country now., so why is it still necessary for people to be in possession of weapons such as Assault rifles, and powerful handguns, Shotguns etc. I am in the Uk, and no one here own any weapons such as this. We have had the odd drive by shooting by gangs in the Big cities, but they are far and few between. It is a very rare thing to hear of a criminal carrying a weapon here. I have read of the school children who were killed by some maniac in your schools, but this could have been prevented surely by stricter gun control. Would you like to see the Law changed on this matter.
