Default Recent Changes in French Gun Laws!

I simply do not know what to do.... I called into a Breton gunshop this morning (an English guy owns it) there has been some changes in French Law which they have just sneeked in without consulting anyone.

Magazine restrictions on hunting rifles, outright ban on semi-automatic .22lr rifles (formally not restricted), and a bunch of little stuff. I detect trouble in the wind, I wouldn't mind but if you travel a little further East you can pick up a T74 Soviet Tank for next to nothing, and they are bothered about magazines on Hunting rifles.....

I have no idea what I an going to do.............

It's probably just the EU enacting politician protection laws. You can't protect yourself from them if you can't be armed....

About a week ago I posted something I read about recent changes in Italian gun laws, but nobody had any hard info to add. I was reading an article about an Italian made copy of an 1865 Spencer rifle (lever action tube fed) and the article stated that "due to recent changes in Italian Gun laws, the magazine capacity is restricted to 5 rounds". This seems awfully silly to me, but I guess the whole EU is clamping down even further on gun owners. My suggestion, move to Vermont.

Would if I could.....Italian gunlaws are bazaar to say the least as it is and not even the Italians understand them, odd in a way because more stuff is coming out of Albania than you can shake a stick at. A heavy goods vehicle was checked with illegals in it a few months ago and those not armed to the teeth with knives had TT30/33's. The unarmed immigration official, quite wisely in my view stood to one side and let them depart..........
