Links please. Britain has always had similar gun laws to Canada. Still does. Why do you think we DO have these levels of laws in Canada? Because we were a British colony (except Quebec) and we didn't separate through war.

In fact I can't think of a single First World country that has this "slippery slope" problem. Actually I can't think of a single First World country that has the same guns and violence problem. Or the same gun culture.

I told my kids, "Someday, you'll have kids of your own." One of them said, "So will you."
