A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.The result in America is that certain low-level crimes that we have across of a wide area in the UK (not just in cities) are less common in the wider-US.
This stems from the fact that you are fair less likely to be mugged because a mugger cannot be sure if you're packing a concealed weapon (legally). Aggravated burglary too is rarer in many parts because who wants to break into a house if you know the owenr has a Berrata in their bedside table.
We have nothing like this in the UK of course. In fac we've banned pretty much any owenrship of guns for ordinary law-abiding people, which means that now the only people with guns are the criminals. Perhaps it is time for us to realise that a Second Amendment of our own could have positive impacts on some of the more lower level violent crime that has increased?
After all, prison is meant to be a deterrent as much as it is meant to reofrm. If you're average mugger knew that you might be carrying a 9mm semi-automatic weapon they might think twice before beating you up and nicking your wallet? Let's not forget about the Swiss and their love of guns compared to their violent crime rates. Thoughts?
