Yes. It will be very possible in the future as Obama packs the Supreme Court with liberal anti gunners. It is very possible now in certain states. Look at what has happened to travelers in NYC when they were forced into extended layovers.

The soldier had "medical problems that affected his memory".

If he is currently under care for such a problem, then you could say "Yes, and it is happening now".

What's on the 4473?

Happens all the time. Try it yourself and see what happens go to commiefornia illinoise newyork massachussettes etc and show a cop you got a handgun on your person. Guess what happens next and what civil right gets violated on a daily hourly basis across this nation coast to coast...

Why is it only a public outrage when it happens to former leo or war vets????

In those anti-firearm Countries, persons are merely subjects without a say, whereas we Americans are citizens with an opportinuty to be properly represented by persons knowledable as to our particular areas in the Republic. But this is in great danger at this time as they seemingly in power represent us not in reality but in their pipe dreams of a disarmed society and a former USSR motto of "Each to his own need" rather than "Each to his own ability to work and support his or her family and support the GOD inspired Nation that Washington and his
brave American founder envisioned.

Unbelievable. This guy has given many bad guys acute lead poisoning and done God knows what else for his country. He will prob look over his shoulder the rest of his life. He should be able to protect himself and his family after service of that nature. All citizens, I mean subjects of the UK should be able to as well, this guy just has many more reasons why he needs to.

The comments following the article were disgusting except for one or two. How can these sheep feel this way??? These people only think guns are used in a bad way, unless it's the "State" who has the gun. They also are freaking out about the fact that he had four kinds of "real" ammunition! Man, this guy should pack his sh!t and join the US Army, we'd be lucky to have someone with his skill set walking our street armed with a gun...and ammo!

And because in Britain it seems like the only dudes who's balls haven't dropped off are the warfighters.

Yes it can and probably will with the progressive in power and nothing to stop their agenda.
