We had an armed population in Britain as I outlined,as I said the prevalence of arms owned by the general population and the aristocracy
was reduced until we arrived at Britain as it is today.
America has a gun problem even if certain parts of the population are in denial.
As I said to solve the problem they have to start somewhere,a journey has to start with a step in a better direction.
Total removal of firearms will not be achieved,just as it hasn't been achieved in Britain.
I feel much safer in Britain than in the USA where in some states it is easier to buy an assault rifle than a beer.
