    More Lunacy In The UK (It Never Ends)



    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    Rudyard Kipling

    The bullet, of Swiss origin, was still in its brass casing, complete with enough gunpowder for it to fire itself.
    Wow! Almost like a stick of dynamite!...

    RUN FOR YOUR LIVES, RUN FOR YOUR LIVES.....

    Typical anti reaction......

    The bullet, of Swiss origin, was still in its brass casing, complete with enough gunpowder for it to fire itself.

    Mr Khan said that if it had been struck hard enough or exposed to heat it could have gone off.

    To get hold of one of these is not easy. You have to go through a scrutinized search, you need a licence and you have to belong to a club."

    But to leave strictly controlled goods out in the street would be enough for a firearms licence to be revoked.

    The bullet has been examined at a Metropolitan Police laboratory and details about it kept for future reference.

    Police are treating the unattended ammunition as a crime. Mr Khan alerted them at 10.16am, and they arrived at his shop to pick up the bullet at 11.32am.
    IT WAS A .22LR, I have a bunch rolling around in the floor of my truck! They're also all over the house....OMG RUN It'S going to explode!

    Just think how the story would have turned anti-American if the bullet had been made here, instead of by the evil Swiss.

    (just think, now that the lib's control House & Senate, we are in for the same....)

    Run For Your Lives!...

    Hurry, hide, duck for cover, call the national guard (wait...they can't have guns over there)...call EOD...call the police (wait, they can't have guns, either!)

    This presents a deadly threat...
    I know, if the terrorists find this out, they'll probably be putting .22LR's everywhere...we're all doomed now!
    Help us... ...baaaaaaaaa...

    Sheesh!...how do people publish/read this stuff and keep a straight face?

    I've seen someone throw a bullet into a fire...not a great idea...but it doesn't do anything but...poof...

    This ought to be O'Rielly's 'Most Rediculous Item'...

    I wish I could find ammo laying around the streets. Preferrably something that isn't as inexpensive as a .22. Next time please leave larger calibers, thanks.

    If you wouldn't run such a risk doing so, it would be fun to run around London leaving little live .22 rounds all over.

    It might cause mass hysteria.........sort of like airplanes flying over pygmies/headhunters, etc. for the first time.

    We owe our judicial system and a lot more to those people.

    watch closely. If we are still able, we will soon be defending the Brtish Isles from some sort of take over if this mindset is alowed to pervade. They are getting as bad as France.

    And to think I used to have a brick of 'em in my pickups glove compartment as a teen. Even in the school parking lot! I guess that would have made me a potential mass murderer over there these days.

    My fear is that if we don't keep on top of it, things like this could one day happen here!

    I wonder what that would be like...Englishmen throwing 'stones' at white flags?

    We already treat .22lr like they did in this article.......anybody try to get a .22lr thru airport screening. They would react like it was a WMD, it would be funny if it wasn't true.

    that's pathetic is what it is. I feel bad for people who are that scared of an inanimate object.

    I have a couple .22lr's in my pocket right now from earlier this afternoon. They're fun to twist out of their casings, then burn the powder with a lighter.
