Well, as a 72 year old Englishman (who did National Service and so was gun-trained to a certain extent) but has never had much of an opinion either way about gun control:
The forum is for discussion and, hopefully, a way to help folk make up their mind on the subject under discussion. I have read all the posts in this thread and will just make the observation that although there seems to be more willy-waving by the US pro gun lobby here, and noting that bad folks of all nationalities will have guns whether legal or not (and gun laws have no effect on that whatsoever), I now definitely decide that, if it is ever allowed, I will buy a gun for self/home/family protection. Not much chance of that in my lifetime however given my age.
