IMPORTANT: I don't want to start a pro-gun vs anti-gun storm. Just want to discuss my options. Few days ago I started a thread about immigrating to a western country (from India). I want some clarifications on the very important issue of gun and self protection laws in various countries. USA has great gun and self protection laws. But there are some problems for me immigrating over there. I like online sports betting. To the point where it's an important enough issue to affect my choice of countries. My another hobby, forex trading will also face some problems there. UK - Horrible gun and self protection laws (but great for online betting, forex trading etc). One thing I would like to know - how do the rich and affluent people protect themselves in London? I find it very hard to believe that even rich people don't have guns etc. London has a high crime rate. Just a quick overview of the situation in UK - gun laws, self protection etc would be nice. Europe - Not sure. Feel free to chime in here.
