Whats the population of the UK? Has to be close to Canada's 32 million...Funny though, we're tied at like .001 murders per thousand people and here we are debating if I should buy a pistol or an AR first :lol:

Canada wastes millions of dollars trying to control our 130 or so firearms murders per year, and like 80% of those are unregistered guns anyway. A look at that list smartens people up.

Keep it up, Recoil!

Well, heck, if we can call the British anything, it's orderly!

Thanks for the info...Man, Recoil is like the Jerry Stackhouse of this board, he just serves it up!

And I just needed to lord over a country that actually has worse (fancy that!) gun legislation than my own.

this is a very good idea, keep it up, plus you must realise crime isnt just statistics, its a mindset, and anyone who says canadians and the british think alike, are just bloody insane....lol

lol weellll, we do wanna be like the mother country, I mean...We have a parliament, our judges wear pouffy wigs, we write things like "colour" and use the metric system...Kinda like what America would have been without a revolution. So, we do kinda think like Britain.

But America is closer, and just sooo cool! :lol:

Natch, some of the good habits find their way up here.

Oh yeah...Starbucks is Evil.

Hey, a few other things America has given us, in all fairness. Good TV, real movies...Traitor or not, CBC bores the heck out of me.

Recoil, got any figures on crime committed with silencers or class three firearms? I'm betting it's nil but it would be cool the see the numbers (or lack thereof)

The FBI publishes statics on crime every year. They break it down by all kinds of things and actually do a pretty good job. That information MAY be on their site.

Might be wrong too, but I think the 2% might actually be the so called "Assault weapons"...Maybe it is autos though.

Thanks Eka, I'll check it out.

Good thing you aren't as lazy as me or it would be bi-annual news updates.

1/10th of a percent. Gee, some people would lead you to think if the public here had access to machine guns it would be the roaring twenties all over again.

Lets not forget that fully automatc weapons have been severly restricted since 1936 and in most states completly illegal. If you have ever fired a fully auto weapon you will understand how inaccurate it really is. Except for a squad weapon for suppressive fire, fully auto rifles are a waste of ammo in combat IMHO. That didn't stop the gangs from killing each other, but legalizing liquer did pretty much gut their illegal business and stop a lot of the vilance.
