Welcome to mylot jb. Rollo explained it very well in Response #3. The United States is nothing like the U.K. Our forefathers fought for our right to exist as a free nation and carefully crafted our Constitution so that we could remain free. The federal government is not the United States...the individual states are the United States...and the federal government does not have the power to take away any of the right guaranteed in our Constitution. We, as a people, are not willing to give up or allow to be taken away, any of our rights because they represent the core of who we are. We have the right to protect ourselves...from each other, from a foreign enemy and from our own government if it came to that. It has nothing to do with crime but it has everything to do with freedom.
