In the uk it is illegal to own a firearm for self defense, we have had loads of massacres which all result in tighter firearm control. If we (Scotland) gt independence from the rest of the uk then the head man wants to ban firearms completely, none, for any reason, including air rifles and realistic bb guns and airsoft. And every time there is a massacre police are killed because they are unarmed. All the crims have pistols and automatic weapons anyway so I say don't disarm the rest of us. Gun free zones are targeted because it's easy to massacre folk because no one is there to stop you. If we get independence I will import a firearm and take over the country, who will stop me? The government without a military? I could do it because they want to disarm themselves. Anders Breivik attacked an island full of liberals, there was no one there to stop him because it was a gun free zone. The fact that it is gun free encourages murderers because there is nothing inside that zone to stop them bringing in a weapon. Gun free zones don't save lives at all, they make it easier to kill multiple folk. I should know, my whole country is a gun free zone. And anything carried for self defense is illegal here, if you can walk it is illegal to carry a cane or stick.
