    Angry And I thought Soviet gun laws were insane!!

    We all think we know how obscene British gun laws are, but I don't think I could ever have envisioned a more restrictive and horrible country to live in as a citizen shooter, even in my wildest nightmares, than in the UK.

    For instance, to own this cutting edge assault weapon shown below (a 1917 Webley & Scott Brass Flare Pistol) -- a pistol that could obviously be used on a wild and deadly shooting spree -- you must obtain a "Firearms Certificate with the correct Variation, or [the weapon] can be deactivated to order").



    Same goes for the futuristic assault shotgun in the next pic, a deadly 20 Bore Black Powder Muzzle Loading Shotgun. For that death-dealing weapon of mass destruction you must plead with your local police for a Shotgun Certificate (which is based on "good reason"; if you don't "need" a muzzle loading shotgun, or you aren't willing to let the police into your house occasionally to make sure you have properly stored your weapon in a "secure place", then no Certificate and no gun).



    Really frightening stuff -- and even more chilling is that most Brits put up with this madness!!

    They're also not allowed to own a locking folding knife in the UK. This way, they'll be able to identify the stabber since they will be missing a few fingers.

    It sure is nice, as are many other beautiful and historical arms on that UK site that will either soon be destroyed by "deactivating" them (because the law-abiding purchaser cannot obtain -- or can't bother to obtain -- the proper bureaucratic "jump through the endless hoops" permit or license), or that have already been deactivated.

    Aren't you glad that we had a Revolutionary war over here to separate ourselves from the UK ? I am. But don't kid yourself, there are those here that would do that in a second to us if they had the chance.

    But they have the protection of their bill of rights.

    So obviously their government can't do that!

    When my Canadian mother in law (who was RCMP) passed away, the Luger her father had obtained during WWII passed to my father in law. Since he did not have the requisite permits needed for owning that in Canada, he was required to turn the gun over for mutilation. They gave it back to him...as a memento I guess. When he showed to me, I just about broke down. I can't be made to understand it.

    No kidding, I have been to the UK in the aftermath of a soccer (football) game, the lack of guns has not seen a drop in violent or distructive activity at all!~
