Lady El , I went to school for three reasons
1] it was law
2] I needed an education
3] Italian MOM with a wooden spoon that stirred other things beside sauce
the best part no guns/sentries just a bully here and there
That is exactly how it was. The biggest threat to oneself was
the usual bully and the threat of being sent to the Head's study
if naughty! Life was so simple then.

<quoted text>I have a very small .380 in my back pocket all the time. You never know when you will walk into a robbery. I have carried for over 15 years and never need it. But that doesn't mean I won't need it tomorrow. Better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it :)
You must feel naked when you visit England. How would you
cope here if you were to run into a robbery? Just wondering.

What are your thoughts?
I put your question to my husband...ex Royal Artillery.
His answer was he could not understand anybody having the
need to own or carry a weapon.

Defending himself against what? Someone nicking a few possessions?
Not worth a life Denny, at least not in my book.
My late mother-in-law's home was broken into years ago, the young
burglar took some food and a few pounds which were lying near the
telephone...you think my mother-in-law should have shot him dead
if she had been home?
He was an opportunist....hungry that's all.
She was very lucky she wasn't harmed. I would shoot anyone breaking in my home. I would assume he was armed and my life was at risk. Our two countries see things very differently. Self defense is a right here. Here criminals all have guns and are much more likely to kill the witness

Drugs and gangs have changed all that here. When I was growing up everyone carried a knife but it wasn't to fight with.

I hope that this will be a great day for you and P and that no matter what you do you will have fun and enjoy yourself..
I am going to be moving furniture.. Not what I really want to do but I have a new livingroom set coming next week.. So I want to get the old set out and gone... I'm keeping My Recliner.. but the couch and the other recliner are gonna be given away.. The couch is going to be the real bear though as it is a hide-a-bed... and that sucker is really heavy.
Sending you and yours all of my best wishes...
((Love-n-Hugs))
@}-'--,---
Good Afternoon Dear Rose....That sounds like awfully hard work..

hand if I were nearer! Recliners are our best friends of an evening after the day's work...wouldn't be without mine....
We are expecting Siberian weather this weekend Rose, have got all the work out of the way now and taking it easy over the weekend...

Well I know there is less chance of being shot in England. Our criminals are more apt to kill a witness. They say the first person you kill puts you in the chair so the rest are free. I do carry a small knife with me in England and I am not sure it is legal because it has a locking blade. The blade is only 2 inches but I am not sure about the lock being OK. I show my friends my gun license and they can't believe it because it is so foreign to them

Would he feel the same if every criminal was armed and may be willing to kill you?

Do you know what Denny. I think your country is running scared.
It is a mistake to ASSUME. Assumptions cost lives.

I still can't imagine how 'twas all

I know there were whispers here

Just very sad AND serious.
I know Grace...it's absolutely disgusting. Hospices?
It beggars belief.
What a legacy to leave behind.

Chicago had 500 murders last year and guns are illegal but most of those murders were done with guns

I am a gentle soul just like I am here El. When you carry a gun you never lose your temper and you try to walk away from any altercation. People at gun shows are very very polite :)

I remember years ago when someone in the UK stabbed a bunch of school children. The thing I hate are the emotional reactionary laws that are passed. We had a case of someone driving his car into a bunch of people and killing and injure several people. You didn't see a rush to ban cars. People say why do you need a 30 round magazine. Well why do you need a car that will go over 100 ? I am not a fan of big mags but it does no good to restrict them. A gun with a 10 round mag is no more deadly than a gun with a 10 round mag. All this uproar has resulted in a huge run on gun store . The prices have doubled. The shelve are empty. Some store are completely out of ammo. I bought a bolt action .223 target rifle because the ammo is cheap and you can't find any. Back ordered! My interest in guns is not how many rounds I can fire fast. I am a target shooter and interested in perfection of putting each round through the same hole

I am totally aware of that Denny, I think I am a good judge of character even from afar. It was just my little joke...:)

I knew of a guy that went moose hunting in Alaska. Not only did he have the required rifle, he also sported a long barrel .357 with a scope. It was for bears!
A gun like a tool...
I asked my 16 year old daughter about gun control. She like her mom thinks they all should go away. I then asked, what about shooting competitions ala Olympics!? How quiet she became!
They don't use Uzis and AK 47s in the Olympics.

My friend came back from tours in Iraq and Afghanistan ----- showed us pictures and in one he is holding a gun more than half the length of his body...... he is over 6 feet tall. THAT kind of weapon does not belong on the streets and in the neighborhoods anywhere. There is no legitimate reason for it.
