Default I have a bad feeling about this one

Cumbria shootings: The 44-mile drive which became a journey to depravity | UK news | The Guardian

I wonder just how long I will have weapons to talk about once the anti gun, tree hugging, lesbian, butch looking, vegetarian, ghay loving b**tards target legitimate licenced firearm owners. Having said that my prayers go out to the families of the dead.

There are 600,000 licenced shotgun owners in the UK all of which are currently worried to say the least. I have almost written my firearms cert.

Despairing Davyboy

I was thinking just the same thing Davy


Quote:
Derrick Bird - the man who killed twelve people and then killed himself in Cumbria - legally held the two guns he used in the carnage.


The fact that he was licenced to keep the shotgun and a .22 rifle has prompted calls for a tightening-up on the renewal of gun licences from some quarters.

But Lord Brian Mackenzie, formerly president of the Police Superintendents' Association and a former Chief Superintendent with Durham Constabulary, said it was not easy to decide who should have a shotgun and who should not.

He suggested that its would be impossible to creas a sysmte for checks that would contend with someone who could be "perfectly stable but then become unstable".

Lord McKensize carried out a review of gun laws following the deaths of 16 people in the 1987 Hungerford Massacre carried out by Michael Ryan.

He said although Derrick Bird's case was different from Ryan's in Hungerford, the rules might need to be looked at again.

He said "In rural communities obviously shotguns are fairly commonly used and it's very difficult, I think, to decide who should have a shotgun.

"Clearly we do need to look at the system, find out the facts in this particular case.

"There's a difference between a shotgun and a sniper rifle which this chap, Derrick Bird, seemed to have so I think we need to look at the evidence and find the facts and then we'll decide whether in fact we need to tighten the regime."

God I hope not for you guys' sake - you've really only got shotguns and rifles left hey? And it wouldn't surprise me if similar noises were made here; it doesn't have to be a shooting solely in your own country for the gun control lobby to start up their undermining propaganda.

Just remind everyone that it would have taken only 1 armed civilian to have put the death toll at 1.

Since when is a .22 a sniper rifle?
