Superiority of the right to bear arms

The article comes from the British Ananova site. It starts with:

A US man has been arrested after a speed camera was shot three times with a high-powered rifle.
And it ends with:
In Britain, speed cameras have been beaten, burned and hacked down by angry motorists but not shot at, so far.
Do you feel a smirk of that European superiority on the face of this article? I do.

Tell you what, my dear British hack: I bet you would vastly prefer execution by a shooting squad to being burned. Or stomped. Or hacked to pieces.

I consider the issue settled.
