Every time an American gunman goes on a killing spree, we shake our heads in righteous disbelief at our poor benighted colonial cousins.
Who threw off the yoke of British oppression with the help of private arms. :D

If you read Armed America, by Clayton Cramer, there are some great writings by British commanders about how they get casualties everytime they go out in the countryside from the d**ned militia.

Have I recommended that book already?

America’s disenchantment with “gun control†is based on experience: whereas in the 1960s and 1970s armed crime rose in the face of more restrictive gun laws (in much of the US, it was illegal to possess a firearm away from the home or workplace), over the past 20 years all violent crime has dropped dramatically, in lockstep with the spread of laws allowing the carrying of concealed weapons by law-abiding citizens.

in 1909, policemen in Tottenham borrowed at least four pistols from passers-by (and were joined by other armed citizens) when they set off in pursuit of two anarchists unwise enough to attempt an armed robbery.
That's the kind of society I'd be proud to be a part of. 8) Reading this also makes me wonder about revolutions in relation to armed society. Which revolutions were more successful, which of those successful revolutions were more benefitial to the people, and so on?

Why do you think the British were disarmed? It is a class society, and they had a really nasty red scare during the early third of the twentieth century.
