The ban is not in effect now, and I haven't seen a single person walking the streets with an AK47. It seems to me that these are the least of our problems.

Here's a good video that puts things in perspective.

Thank you for posting this video, I honestly didn't know things had gotten that bad in Australia and England. It's a shame they have little or no way to protect themselves or practice the sport they love.

It's a good lesson to be learned though, and one that every American should hear and know about. Give them an inch and they will take a mile.

Another good point made is that whether there is a ban on any type of gun, here or overseas, the black market will provide criminals with what they need and good people will have no way to protect themselves.
