London, Gun Free Zone

You can legislate all you want, but it won't get rid of humanity's embedded capacity for violence. That said, I line up with Col. Jeff Cooper:
--"One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that 'violence begets violence.' I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure -- and in some cases I have -- that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy."
