    They were warned the rifle display during the march in Plymouth, Devon, could be deemed as 'glamorising' weapons.

    Wow. Just when you thought the UK government couldn't sink to further depths on this issue.

    Here's what I predict will happen next:

    1. Cadets, active duty, and reserves will be required to march and travel to/from work in civilian attire so as not to "glamorize" military uniforms, which may "offend anyone."

    2. Britain's S.A.S. (Special Air Services) and The Corps of Her Majesty's Royal Marines will be disbanded so as not to "offend anyone."

    3. Police Bobbys will be reduced in rank to constable and required to wear civilian clothes so as not to "offend anyone."

    4. All airshows throughout the U.K. will be disbanded, as the predominant attraction are the military aircraft, which will undoubtedly "offend people."

    Meanwhile, U.K. knife crime, gun crime, and terrorist activity will skyrocket, unabated, due to the "wonderful advances" the U.K. is making these days towards not "offending anyone."

    Date: In the very near future

    Dear Mr. U.S. President and all U.S. Senators and Representatives:

    Two decades ago, throughout the U.S., we enacted a variety of gun laws whose intention was to reduce gun crime. Our little experiment backfired, and we saw crime skyrocket. When we admitted the error of our ways and relaxed gun laws, crime plummeted.

    Recently, the U.K. has been trying their own experiment, but on a much larger scale, and it's effects are disasterous. We've trying reminding them of why such efforts don't work, including the fact that when you disarm the general populace, of which 90% are law-abiding citizens, you make them targets for the 10% of the populace who're law-breaking criminals.

    They're not listening. Because they refuse to listen, please DO NOT FOOLISHLY COME TO THEIR RESCUE when their island sinks back into the Middle Ages! To do so would be highly co-dependant on an international level. I do not want my hard-earned taxpayer dollars helping a nation that was perfectly capable of helping itself at one time, but didn't.

    The reason matters not. The substance is that there comes a point in time when one has to allow for natural consequences. They are not our fledgling colony, for whom we must care when they foolishly run afoul of trouble.

    Sincerely,


    since9

    The worst of it is the leaders of the troop caving in setting the example for the cadets. It's perfectly wonderful to be a gutless wonder afraid to stand up to the scorn and derision of those fuchsia wearing gonadless pansies shaping public policy. It would be a shame for a group teaching military values to actually stand up to those who would sacrifice everybody's safety and security because they are afraid of children marching with non functioning guns. The cadet leaders should be sacked for being frauds. The cadet leaders already proved there are no testicles inside their panties.

    1962 a man loaned the honor guard his collection of 1903 A3 rifles for a parade. The ones with the firing pins removed from the bolts were stored in the music room, the 3 still in shooting condition were stored in my locker at school. The man brought them to school in the back of his pickup and recruited a couple of kids to help him bring them into school. Nobody batted an eyelash, the little old lady who lived across the street, didn't have a heart attack and none of the teachers showed the slightest sign of fear. 2 years ago a scene like that would have gotten the police called to the school and everybody involved would have been arrested.

    I said it before, I'll say it again, the only difference between the UK and the USA is 3200 miles and shame on all of us for not standing up to the puke breath ninnies who want to turn all of us into genteel victims of the unwashed criminal types who don't care about public opinion.

    Exactly. What's a profession of arms without their arms?

    In 1912, my grandfather toted his shotgun to school. Daily. He was in the 4th grade. After all, how else was he going to kill a rabbit or squirrel for supper?

    Well, the puke breath ninnies in the U.K. confiscated arms throughout India last century, and just look at what a fine mess they're dealing with these days: Only the criminals are armed, courtesy of a vibrant, albeit illegal, arms manufacturing cottage industry.

    One would think the British Government would learn from it's past mistakes, but nooo.... Apparently, that's either too difficult a task for them, or they're too pround to admit their folly. Regardless of the reason, they're sinking their country into the sea with their foolish tripe.
