I supposed the same, benjiboy, and did not mean to infer that you were one (a 'gun nut'). You are far too relevant a member of the human race to sink that low. But you have to remember that in the USA whenever there is a mass killing, the call goes out for yet more firepower, not less. True, Switzerland is armed to the teeth but, one has to carefully observe that there guns are not LOVED like they are in the 'free' country called Amerika.
The reason, benjiboy, that you have no desire to touch one again is because in Britain, unlike in the USA, guns are not deemed 'sexy' and an enhancement and affirmation of masculinity. - David Lyga
