They want the carrying of acid the same as carrying a knife.

Apparently they carry it in little squirt bottles.

The want you to have a license to buy acid.

I was in Home Depot and saw a pallet of muratic acid jugs. Just sitting there in the aisle the other week not harming a soul.

No one in America would even give it a second glance.

Common sense acid controls!
Common sense truck rental controls!
Common sense truck hijacking controls!

I'll quit carrying a gun when they make murder and armed robbery illegal

Last week I bought 12 gallons of muriatic acid from Lowe's. Wasn't even asked for ID. But if I would have bought windshield washer fluid... thanks meth heads

It's even happening here.

These sick individuals need to have acid slowly dripped on their boy parts.

if 'certain' americans can't look at the UK and think "huh... clearly gun control wasn't the issue" then they should all gather together and drink kool aid... if you catch my drift...

And after that it will be concentrated chlorine bleach, and after that it will be concentrated drain cleaner, and after that flaming alcohol, and after that......

It isn't the 'dangerous item', it is the dangerous person or group of people behind it. Last time I checked, you can sharpen a butter knife with a rock and determination. The UK's idiocy towards this issue (and firearms) is pathetic and it is sad to me to see the same thing spouted out here in the states.

Acid attack on a 3 year old in a pram (stroller).

An armed society is a polite society.

Maybe if they don’t let them carry guns, they could at least bring back the Queen saying “behead them” and that afternoon they would be a beheading in the town square.

Better solution...stop hamstringing the populace and creating more victims by denying law-abiding citizens (subjects, actually) the means to defend themselves. I'll take my 230 grain hollow-point .45 rounds to an acid fight any day.
