BB guns are legal and pretty much unregulated....
Do I need to turn myself in for crimes I committed at age six with my daisy red ryder ?
What? Criminal have GUNS in the UK? How can that be? They took away everyone’s guns to prevent this very thing! They made LAWS and everything! How DARE this criminal disobey the UK’s tough gun laws!
Sarcasm aside, this is yet another example of how gun laws work. They disarm the law abiding citizens, strip them of their right to defend themselves, and make every town and city a worry free playground for the criminal to do as he pleases without fear. The police can not provide security, they can only arrive after the fact and clean up the mess.
Gun laws also allow governments turned dictatorships to rule without fear of uprisings, which was the real reason for the disarming of the masses to begin with.
I doubt you would shoot the paramedics in the head.
Just a guess.
Smiling at you...
Daisy Red Ryder...
I was only six yet I think I shot the neighbor lady in the butt once......:o)
You bad, bad boy.
Now you know that that was not appropriate.
All guns (even the BB and Air guns) must be treated with respect.
We want all the readers YOUNG and old who follow my posts to
I paid my debt to society......Dad took away my ammo for a month ! Back still hurts looking for old BB’s......
Well poor dear...yep, debt paid.
Thank you Squantos.
