    When the government is in fear of bieng overthrown by another country they will do anything to prevent that, including arming the populace. But when the threat is eliminated the armed populace becomes the perceived threat.

    NO, I would not.
    through their own stupidity, they forfeited their natural right to self-defense
    perhaps an occupation would (re?)-ignite the flame of freedom in that nation
    whether it straightened them out or not, perhaps the occupation of a nation as closely tied to us as england would wake up the sheeple in this nation. I hope so, because otherwise we'll be in the same boat as them in 20 years.

    I would not send them anything, They did not learn the last time. All we have gotten from them is socialist BS and Animal Rights Groups. If it were to happen again they deserve what they get.

    Maybe the U.S. should invade Britain and restore the 1689 English Bill of Rights, and perhaps even Magna Carta.

    I wouldn't send those people a rusty worn out .22. From what I have read on the subject of the last time that was done some of the folks here sent some pretty valuable firearms with the assurance that when the need was over they would be returned. The slimy bas---ds destroyed them all when the emergency passed.

    Thousands of guns were loaned to the limeys in 1940 and after the war was over instead of returning them to the USA they were rounded up and destroyed! A helluva way to say "thank you" to the US citizens who loaned the guns!

    'Sides, why send our firearms to ungrateful limeys when we may be needing them ourselves in the not too distant future.

    The English didn't learn their lesson from WWII. They were unprepared for a potential invasion from the Germans. So, what did they do, they armed their citizens. Did they mass produce guns and ammo and distribute them to the citizenry, no. They mass procuded pikes.

    That's right PIKES.




    They distributed metal pike heads, and citizen used broomstick to make spears in order to defend Mother England if the Nazis invaded. The Nazis with thier rifles, machine guns, pistols, grenades, etc., were to be fought off with spears.

    Compare this to the Japanese being afraid to invade the U.S. because there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.

    So, NO, the Brits can stew in their own pudding.

    I don't think I would. I suspect they never got over that 4th of July thing we gave them.

    Absolutely not--let them first step forward, march in the streets and resist British government oppression.

    There are more British citizens than there are British soldiers or police--when the people get tired of abuse, they have more than enough capability to take back their country.

    Except there's probably an order of magnitude more government ammo than citizens'.

    Except for one detail--with the proper motivation and the ability to think--that problem is easily solved....

    Sounds like the interest owed on the guns they dumped would equal a total disarmament of their military, secret services, and police firearms officers, and transfer back to us. I wouldn't mind a HK G36.

    The G36's have issues , fore grip heats up fast, no heat shield , the built in sight is constantly out of zero when firing. The German Military despises them.

    Hi chaps,

    Where do I start? My first post. I'm English and I find that you all hate us for being spineless Left-Wing wusses.

    I ought to leap in, fists flailing in defence of the Mother Country...but the problem is, you're right.

    We have allowed ourselves to be disarmed and "made safe" over this past century.

    And, you're right that we don't deserve your help in stitching our Country back into some form of Democracy.

    But, let me tell you, many English people do not like it. The problem is that they don't know how to go aboutbuilding the Country that they dream of.

    Sure, we should have seen this coming, years ago when the Establishment started to chip away at our freedoms. Every murder and gun tragedy was leapt upon by an eager Establishment, supported by a supine Press, and used to drive home the message of the anti-gun lobby. Guns = Crime. Pure and simple.

    Almost no-one that I know has ever even heard of an English Bill of Rights. No-one. How could they be expected to defend it, when they didn't even know that it existed?

    Anyway, some of us want to change things over here. It's going to be a long slog. We are challenging the same sort of Political Correctness that has given us the term "racism". Mention guns and you'll see either fear or revulsion..."are you some sort of nutter?"

    Try and be kind to we English wusses. After all, we've provided you with a remarkable social experiment; a near-perfect example of why you should fight to your last breath in defence of your Bill of Rights. Once you are disarmed, you become a mere Subject, an economic unit...and you forfeit the rights to Citizenship and Democracy.

    And, if it was up to me, you'd be exporting all the guns you can make; at least one for every decent man and woman. Plus, we'd pay you for them, this time.

    Well, Mr. Turner, I don't think we hate you so much as we hate your government's attitude.

    Earlier I asked the rhetorical question "Would the Brits send us guns if we needed them?". I imagine the answer is, "Yes, some of them would, if they had any to send."

    But certainly your government would never send guns for use by civilians. And, now that I mention, neither would our government do this. The "Progressives" have been running the show in most of the Western governments since WWII and allowing a populace to remain armed is not part of the progressive plan.

    The US has resisted UK-style gun control mainly for historical reasons and because we are more removed from the aristrocratic past than Europe and the UK are. Also, the US is still a vast land which is more sparsely populated than Europe, and so there is still a large residual of individualist thinkers. We owe much to the founding generation and the philosophical and constitutional legacy they left us; Australia is similar in many ways tothe US in many ways but has no such historical advantage and therefore has less of an individualist streak.

    Good luck in setting things to rights in the UK. John Locke yet lives...
