Hello from Scotland~

I was talking to a few Ameican friends via e-mail and quickly it became apparent from general conversation , that they own " VAST " numbers of firearms when compare to us Brits..

Our oppresive laws' such as the complete hand-gun ban in 1997 were introduced under the rouse of "public safety"

The resulting increase in hand gun crime PROVES that such harsh measure do not effect criminal use of firearms... BUT do result in less private ownership, which has never been a problem, yet continuing laws seem aimed at reducing not only the number of private gun owners but equally the number of firearms those individals own ! Why ? Is a man with 4 guns twice as dangerous as a man with 2 guns if he goes "Bananas" ? Only got two hands !

Government impossed restrictions on British hunters mean most are restricted in what they can own and must give "Good reason" for "each" firearm......... As a result the averge British hunters gun safe is likely to hold the following ... IF they are lucky !

ONE .22 Rimfire

ONE .22 centre fire...22 Hornet/.222/.223/etc Bolt action ONLY

ONE Deer rifle... .243/.25-06/.270/7x57/.308 Bolt action ONLY

Plus a couple of 12 Bore shot guns may be a 20 Bore and a single .410

IF and " ONLY " if you are a full member of a rifle club will you be allowed to own a .303 Enfield/.357/.44 lever rifle/.45-70 black powder/black powder pistol/and non-hunting firearms


Personally i have at present Krico semi-auto .22 / .308 Miroku M-bolt /Marlin .444ss
A old English side by side 12 Bore and a Beretta semi-auto 12 Bore

Sounds like some of you guys own more guns than our gunshops !! Go on make me jealous !!

Englander;)

Stephen,

The politicians know in advance that their 'safety laws' will do NOTHING to promote public safety, instead making it worse for the common man. This breeds a wave of crime which makes people more dependent on the government, which allows them to levy more taxes and create more public institutions, therefore creating more jobs for themselves.

Sadly, we appear to be headed down the same slippery slope.

MikeG, I think you are absolutely right about the politicians and the way they think. I hadn't thought about in those terms but it makes perfect sense. But how do you explain the hollywood liberal types like Rosie that doesn't want anybody but her bodyguards to have guns.?

Hey Redhawk, The ExtremeDooty Gun Club Charity is now taking donations. (we already have a Hi-Point 9MM)
