guns are for pussies.
This is where I want this thread to go.
Would you say gun owners are compensating?
Guns are for pussies I'm not from Philly but some say I'm a blunt
That's just the way I am and no I'm not going to front
but yeah, guns are pretty much unnecessary
I assume you're just talking about guns with civilians in normal, everyday American society?
yes. I think eventually, we could move to a society like Britain, where the cops don't even carry guns, but that's a long way off.
That used to be true but they started carrying guns awhile back.
oh yeah? how long ago? I could've sworn they didn't have them when I was there in '03.
The brits are much more heavily armed after 9/11 and at least in 2004-2005, some of the police officers carried a pistol of some sort - often a Glock. Most of the police officers I saw didn't, but the occasional one did.
Around areas like Downing Street, Picadilly Circus (sp?), and the Heathrow airport, the police (or some special unit of the police) carried submachine guns such as the HK MP5 and assault rifles such as the HK G36C (or some variant). I wouldn't be surprised if the assault rifles were single shot only, though.
