The Blue Max
Guess what is legal or acceptable in one country is not always legal in another. We do have strict handgun laws here compared to the states and am pretty sure England does also. Does that prevent you then from visiting any country that has laws you do not agree with? We do understand your constitution allows citizens the right to bear arms and I can respect that. We have different laws that seem to work for us altho there are various points of view on this subject. Not saying one system is better than the other either. I have had American travellers remark they feel safer up here with the laws we have. Have also had Americans say they do not feel safe without a gun. Perhaps like the pros and cons of seatbelts, helmet rules, depends on your experiences maybe? There are laws on both sides of the border that do not make sense to me. I guess just haven't found one yet that makes me think the states is not worth visiting. Gary.

good to have clearance for same, just in case. Still waiting for a reply from federal agencies.
These things do take time, dealing with government always does.
A registered postal letter arrived today.
In short, don't even "think" about entering the United States in any way, shape or form.
Both the department I was dealing with and my lawyers have decided it would best
if I never enter the country. Seems my continuing negative political feelings towards the
country simply means don't even try.Two different interviews with various
officials with me and my lawyers in attendance
present confirmed their feelings and my attitude.
It's over, thanks for all the advice from various individuals
