England grabbed its citizens guns in 1997. Crime skyrocketed as the law-abiding were disarmed. The English citizens have a message for Americans.
Handguns were banned on the UK mainland (bar some exceptions), but are legal in NI. As is concealed carry.
Assault rifles were banned in 1988.
Rifles and shotguns are legal in the UK.
Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows this; sadly, common sense (especially on the east coast) died years ago.
As stupid as the 1997 law was (the Cullen Report didnt suggest a ban), the UK populace has never been a large gun owning public.
From certain cases I've read about, God help you though, if you DARE to use a rifle or shotgun to defend your life or property there however. You will go to prison and the perp--if he lives--will get off scott free--and--probably sue you.

And he’ll end up with your house, your gun, your vehicle, yuour wife- oh wait- that might not be a bad thing
Without guns, this nation would not exist. We defended our rights of liberty from the king in England. We have defended in may wars since. We have assisted others in defending their rights. When I went into the Army, me and the men from the south were far superior shooters to those from the cities of the north and east. They could not hit a lake if they fell out of a boat. We on the other hand, could fire almost any weapon they taught us and shoot it expertly right away. The one thing I had to learn was to use a pistol. I had already been shoot large caliber rifles for years when I went into the Army at 18. Guns kept this nation free. They ARE FOR KEEPING A GOVERNMENT FROM RULING US. Sadly, most idiots today WANT the government to rule and lord over them. If America had had these fools in he 1700, 1800s, we would have lost and still belong to England. We would have lost WWI and there would have been no WWII. We might even be under Nazi rule right now. But, thankfully, many have defended these right, from dictators in Sodom on the Potomac.
See if this rings this a bell. in March of 1996, Thomas Hamilton, a mentally unstable man walks into a school in the Scottish town of Dunblane and shoots 16 young children and their teacher. 10 other children and three other teachers before Thomas Hamilton took his own life. Leftists and the media in the UK were outraged at the fact Hamilton was able to get a gun. Emotions were running high, and the UK acted hastily to pass the Firearms Act...
Nice to know not all Brits are foolish twits like Piers Morgan! But that farmer who rots in jail...my blood boils just thinking about that poor man.
I'll give them my ammo first.
Great video, passed it on...
These fools were around then; they were ''loyalists''. Roughly a third of the population, which I suspect is similar to the numbers we have today. The main difference is the loyalists didn't control the flow of information as they do today. It's their ability to influence the unwashed that has weakened the culture. Unintended consequences??? Hardly...
Tony Martin was released in 2003 after serving only 3 years. Not exactly rotting in prison. This video is quite old.
And this is why the American system is superior to the British system in that it is difficult to act quickly and let emotionalism rule the day. And the Senate should be the toughest nut of all to crack, so Feinstein, wishing you epic fail.
But the fact Mr. Martin spent 1 millisecond behind bars is an outrage and horrendous miscarriage of justice, to say the least.
