In 1922 England banned all firearms. When WW2 started all the longarms and handguns were made for the British Army and the HOME GUARD had nothing to fight with if Germany landed on British soil. NRA Members sent their personal cherished long arms, rifles, shotguns and handguns to England never to see them again.

Please be careful, friends--that first sentence is an oversimplification (while I do agree that Britain's gun laws are restrictive in the extreme!). I'm a pro-2nd amendment American living in Britain, and I continually hope, especially at these times when there's so much intense public debate, that my fellow Americans (particularly conservatives) won't fall into the trap of misrepresentation, even in small degrees or by accident. Many folks from both sides of the pond do it all the time.. then again, many liberals have demonstrated that the truth doesn't matter to them.
