    So are they allowed to own any sort of firearm over there now? This came up at work tonight and I didn't want to give missinformation. From what I gathered watching the vid it seemed like they had to turn all of their firearms in. Am I right?

    That's just pretty sickening...

    Some folks, almost I guess outa disgust and the costs, and paperwork of retaining ownership - did hand in stuff they need not have. The '97 deal was handguns. (Early 90's was when semi rifles got hit too).

    So right now IIRC - as long as someone has ''good reason'' - they can have rifles and shotguns. My old bud's at shoot club carried on having compo's using Win 94 type lever guns so as to be able to load for and use handgun ammo.

    The slippery slope is tho no less slippery and who knows when they might try and remove those items too. Another Tony Martin type incident and I'll bet they target shotties

    Sadly the ''Great'' has long departed from ''Great Britain".

    And we have those who rant against the NRA (are you here Greaybeard?) yet they offer no better alternative. If the NRA dies then our gun rights die, if the NRA thrives then so do our gun rights. I belong to the NRA, GOA, and Gun Owners of California. The more pro-gun organisations we all belong to the stronger we are. If you are not doing your part then you are a part of the problem and not a part of the solution. Lets all pull together, JOIN!!

    In my case, I am a lifetime member of NRA but I hate the way they, on occasion, post some stuff and send out "action alerts" that are absolute crap:

    1. Last year they plaster the internet with all kinds of rubbish about how "The UN is going to vote over July 4th on a measure that will make gun ownership illegal". Not true at all and easily proven untrue by anti-gun forces to make the pro-gun side look like lying idiots.

    2. This year they completely misrepresent the OSHA regulations about the explosives industries and retailers to the point of, once again, encouraging thousands if not millions of gun owners to make ill-informed and ignorant comment about these regulations.

    I think that on balance the NRA does more good than harm but sometimes they need to get a freekin' grip.
