I see that the barrel on pic no.2 comes with a useful reminder to the person being aimed-at.

I'm very pleased that we do things differently in dear old Blighty.

Very small mined of you, to judge other nations..
I will let my American relatives know what you think of them when I visit over Christmas in a couple of weeks time...I am very pleased I enjoy differing cultures and experiences.

I’ve no doubt our crime rate would be worse than Detroit if we had hand guns and AR15’s the way it’s going in cities with stabbings.
Countries are made of different cultures and every one of them has their share of good traditions and flaws. Waste of time passing judgement.
slow news day? zzz zzz zzz
What is the problem?

They have the highest incarceration rate on the planet. 22% of the Earth's prisoners are in the US despite being 4.4% of the population.

Land of the free lol
We don't do things differently..

There's more than half a million legally licensed gun owners in the UK.

That is because they are tough on crime. In the UK you can be walking the streets again 10 years after murdering someone, you can deal drugs on the street with impunity.
