The gov. didn’t take away the right to bear arms, there never was any such right. The thing about USA is not just that you can bear arms, but it is legal to shoot a burglar who breaks into your house. It is not legal to do this in Australia and you will be charged (with some degree of freedom and understanding from law enforcers).
UK email spying - idiots. As if they can possibly monitor emails or have any use for doing so. Anyone who wants to send anonymous messages can do so a thousand different ways. Only complete idiot crooks are going to be using emails.
But yeah no freedom in this country, completely fascist state, government is stupid beyond belief, keeps leaving ultra sensitive data on laptops on trains/losing it, millions of cameras but apparently nobody watching them, they bought cameras instead of cops, so, no cops - and tonnes of crime, knife crime galore, carrying a knife illegal but everyone doing it and not getting in trouble for having them or stabbing people coz jails are full. And can’t bother building new ones that is too much like work.
So in summary instead of doing anything useful to address issues they come up with some stupid half assed wanky scheme like cameras everywhere or spy on emails. Man, they have talking cameras now telling you what to do on the street.
Watch V for Vendetta that is where it is headed, at least that is what they want. Whoever “they” are.
They think they can gather info on people to prevent, say, terrorism: but with all the info in the world, it all falls apart, and then the cops shoot the wrong guy, and then they LIE about it trying to cover themselves, and nobody has to resign/apologise/go to jail for shooting the wrong guy. Meanwhile teenagers with guns going around shooting whoever they want.
Whilst on my rant, you can also buy elephant ivory in the frikking street markets.
This place is a joke of clowns
