OK this is out of the UK so not strictly 2A related. See how they are almost gleeful to lump guns with sexual perversion. And see why this perv is a "gun fanatic."

An "evil" gun collector who spent nearly two decades subjecting young boys to a "catalogue of cruel sexual abuse" has been jailed for 16 years.
Pensioner Philip Bignell, a 66-year-old retired public school plumber, used his collection of weaponry and war memorabilia to lure vulnerable victims into his clutches before "stealing their childhood innocence".
Two of those he assaulted said they were so scared by the armoury of rifles and bayonets he had that they felt unable to fend off the "sexual predator's" advances.
London's Harrow Crown Court heard they were also convinced that, should they dare reveal their suffering, the paedophile would "kill" them.
As a result, the youngsters, along with Bignell's other victims, kept their torment a secret well into adulthood.
It was only after one of them became a father and felt he could no longer cope with his inner turmoil that the police were called in and the pensioner arrested.
Bignell, who worked at Harrow School for nearly half a century, also had his dozen gun licences withdrawn.
The investigation resulted in others he had targeted also coming forward to detail their ordeals.
He was convicted of seven counts of buggery and 13 of indecent assault involving four victims - none of them from the school - between 1971 and 1990. Three were children aged just seven, 10, and 12 when they were targeted, while the fourth was a young man of 19.
Police believe there are other victims that they know nothing about and appealed for them to come forward.

Its all sick. I won't comment about the obvious BS with the guns. Sexual predators - esp. child molesters hold a special place on my $#!t list.

I am not sure just how applicable this story is to either CombatCarry.com or our American 2nd Amendment issues.
It's a real stretch as to if there is any CombatCarry forum category that it could be suitably moved to.
