Reason #1 never to visit the UK.

The British are a bunch of pud-pulling pussies. Their national policy on being a victim is to not fight back and take it in the ass, because if you resist a criminal you might get hurt. After you've been robbed, raped, or beaten within an inch of your life, you're supposed to call in their law enforcement who might be able to find your attacker. I'm telling you, my eyes can't roll back far enough for this crap.

For those who don't know, the Assault Weapons ban sunset on Monday (9/13/04) here in the US. This was an incredibly stupid law which basically just outlawed guns based on the way they looked, not the way they worked. It also banned the manufacture of several items, most notably new high-capacity magazines for civilians, but not the possession of pre-existing items. In other words, this law served no purpose other than to piss off gun collectors.

Now this law is gone and that's a good thing. However, you wouldn't think so from reading the BBC's article on the issue. Visit the island of cowardice? No, I don't think I will.
