British Gun Control

I was doing some reading on the American Revolution and that led to further reading in relation to the rights of citizens. I ended up finding this site which presents some interesting finds. Violent crimes appear to be converging in the USA and England. Apparently their desire to curb violent crimes through gun control isn't working. Also it is interesting that their desires to start implementing gun control happened as a fear of the people after the Bolshevik Revolution. I'm not a Communist, but if there are enough people that want something then perhaps it is the 'goverment' that is wrong and not the people. Also interesting, through possession of weaponry this can be a method of being recognized. The colonies formed militias and fought back against these Intolerable Acts but they were still willing to petition the King for a cease-fire and a peaceful resolution of their differences. That the british people have allowed their common law rights to be infringed upon is confusing to me.

Also: this weekend I installed a mediawiki on my Fedora Linux system. The install went very smooth. But upon checking the prices of our provider for a static ip connection I probably won't get a static ip ($99 for 3Mbps down and 256Kbps up or something bad like that.)
