1 - an AK is far easier to build than an AR style rifle

2 - Derrick Bird also used a shotgun.

3 - one death is too many

4 - Police forces in the U.K. should remove firearms from people more often (e.g., before dunblane)

5 - You reach a point where if no guns were available, they'd just do it another way.

6 - I understand Americans wanting to be armed - theyre surrounded by armed Americans, and live in a country populated by other dangerous animals.

7 - We don't really have dangerous animals in the U.K.

8 - We're not surrounded by armed Americans in the U.K.

9 - Most gun deaths in the U.S. are handguns, deaths by "assault style rifles" or other rifles is insignificant in total number

10 - If i'm british, in britain, and get stopped by the police, and reach into my pocket, they won't assume i'm reaching for a gun. In America, they might.

11 - If there were no firearms licensing laws in the U.K., i'd have a house full.

Enough said?
