Anyone else seen the advert?

I like it...

Its well made and uses The Album Leaf, so it is FTW in my eyes. And it gets its message across very well.

Opinions?

Don't ask how I noticed that...

Powerful advert though, quite scary come to think about it.
Edit: That actually was really sad...

Awesome. I think that's absolutely 100% in tune with the sentiment of the video.

It's a really good advert, got the messege across really well. Though, i doubt i'd watch it more than once since it's 3 minutes 40.

even though i agree with the advert, i think the message should be de-assholizing britain instead of disarming britain, they are both pretty much impossible. Do you people think people should be able to carry guns in self defense? i've always agreed with 'disarming the innocent does not protect the innocent', but i dunno, its hard to say since my life hasn't been affected by gun crime.

i think its a symbollic thing, like everyone has fingertips, and almost everyone has a gun, well not rlly, but like in the end they say its child play. so they assume everyone has a gun, but the ad was like trying to promote not using it or something, by showing the consequences and stuff.

You can't change human nature and because of that there will always be murder. I think the best way to deal with that fact is to not live in fear of it and instead live better in honor of the gift that life is.

The problem with the rising crime rate in britain is that nobody seems to be doing anything about it! All our taxes are being spent on benefits and imigrants rather than more prisons! But then even if there were more prisons we would need judges to sentence everyone severely to get the point across rather than making an example of the odd lout! People on the street know that if they commit a crime the police arent even goin to look for them, let alone prosecute them! Politicians are paid hundreds and thousands of pounds of our taxes to runs this supposedly democratic country and yet they dont listen! Get a prime minister who does listen to us and maybe something will get done!

Yes, but if you take away guns, people are just going to build new ones. It's difficult to make a gun that can kill someone half a mile away. If all you need to to kill someone 5 feet away, a hell of a lot of people could knock one together in their garage.

thats the point though, why are these bastards making guns, to rob a shop to get money to fund their crack habit. People who have that mentality should be locked away and starved to death. I also hate how people use 'human rights' to make their lives better even though they have commited a crime, maybe affecting a lot of peoples lives.

Well, crackheads are not, in general, people with the skill to manufacture even a basic weapon.
However, even if you could remove all the extant firearms, and prevent new ones entering circulation, it could only be done through what would amount to an attack on personal freedoms that even Stalin might have considered 'a bit much'.
But maybe not, he was a loon.

are you seriously from manchester? ?Who in manchester calls them chavs? They're scallies to mancs!
Also, tons of immigrants? I haven't seen any obvious signs of them lately plus, they're a benefit to the economy and like the british don't emigrate? Old people pack up and move to the south of france and florida etc. all the time when they're no use to society and they still get their pensions from England. I'm not saying that's a bad thing but please, immigration is hardly our biggest problem.

Instead of disarming Britain, all they need to do are put tougher restrictions on them. If people have been convicted of a felony or something they can't buy a gun. You'd have to take a course on gun safety, pass a test and pay for a license. Disarming Britain would just make it easier to get firearms on the black market and cause more crime.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.

1. I have no idea what a "felony" is, please explain.

2. Guns are extremely difficult to buy unless you live in the country, it's illegal guns that are the problem.

3. By disarming Britain they mean disarming ALL guns illegal especially.

I don't know how to put it without sounding patronising but guns in the UK are a very different problem to the USA.

There are already restirctions on firearms, you do have to pay for a gun lisence and The main provider of weapons is already the black market!

If disarming britain meant destroying every single gun available to the public then so be it! Whether your a vintage gun collector or not i dont think anyone should be in the possesion of a gun in the same way i think that if xbox 360's were causing so much trouble i'd happily give mine up to clean up britain!

^I think that could be down to realism rather than stereotyping. You don't see many 70 year old women on trial for gun crime.

The likelihood of the right thing getting done if the majority of people are listened to is very low. That is because the majority of people hold views like yours.

If society were perfect than there would be no murders. A perfect society is a bit unrealistic. Fine =/= perfect.

With views like those, you are not in a position to be criticising anyone. You are no better than they are.
