Americans are arming themselves for self-protection against terrorists and criminals, a right the British people do not have. When Islamic terrorists bring their senseless acts of murder to the streets of America, hopefully some legally armed citizens will be able to respond and end the threat before police arrive, thus saving lives and proving there is still a need for our Second Amendment right to bear arms.
