How can any nation be truly "free" if they don't even allow citizens to own firearms?

The Founding Fathers of the USA, in their wisdom, saw fit to enshrine the inalienable right of citizens to own firearms. Sadly, that has not stopped many fools in the US from trying to attack and abolish our 2nd Amendment. Good thing we have worthy organizations like the NRA and others who will fight tirelessly... show more The Founding Fathers of the USA, in their wisdom, saw fit to enshrine the inalienable right of citizens to own firearms.

But what about other nations that call themselves "free"? Australia used to be a free nation, but then they went and gave up their right to own firearms. And the UK also, it's sad how far the Brits have fallen :(
Update: Most of Europe is like this too. Except Switzerland, where you will find a rifle in every household.
