How an anti-gun brit learned to love the 2nd amendment

"Can cultural snobbery crowd out common sense?by Raheem Kassam"

When Austin Petersen first met me in 2009, I must confess, I was as anti-Second Amendment as Bashar al-Assad probably is right now. Guns in the hands of citizens is not a concept that I, as a Brit living in a leafy London suburb could ever understand the importance or sanctity of. It was a foolish an uneducated position that I blame myself for primarily, but also a cultural snobbery that I now realise suggests an inherent belief not just in government as an entity, but in those who are charged with disposing the powers that government gives them. I hereby repent publicly, as I have done privately for over a year now. And I hope you, dear reader, can forgive me.

My familiarity with the Second Amendment (for we have no such concept in Britain) came as recently as what the British media would describe as the “spate” of public shootings in the United States. Bizarrely, instead of concerning ourselves with our own issues, Britain submerged itself in the American gun debate, starting with Gabby Giffords, through Aurora, and reaching schadenfreudesque frenzy over Newtown. Media pundits as well as my Facebook friends seemed to revel with glee at the deaths of the victims – as it gave them all a chance to say, “I told you so.”
