England's gun crime rate went up after the ban -- there's a whole display on it at The Armouries Museum in Leeds.

Gun crime has gone up 48% in England over the past three years. They have lost the country and don't even know it.

Scotland has the HIGHEST violent crime rate in the world.

Nobody notices stats on Ireland, the poorest of the industrialized nations -- the South is kinda a suburb of the British Midlands which goes there on ferries over the weekends to show the Irish how to drink and to tell what Americans would call "Polish jokes" but about their gaelic hosts. It's kinda sad...

I often keep one in a lockbox locked to my seatpost in my car. My nephews each have some firearms at their parents' home, in the event they wish to hunt at their childhood hunting grounds. Sportsmen frequently take their firearms on camping trips or trips to other areas (even other states) to hunt.

It is sad when the riding crop has become comfortable; i wish you guys trust and freedom from your government.

At least you have the leprechaun's gold to comfort you.

Obviously they only have to be locked in the cabinet when not in use. You have to take them out to use them. If you were going shooting again obviously you would take the firearm in the car. You can only use them on land that you have permission to shoot on if you didn't it would be armed trespass.

As I recall when I was in N. Ireland there were all manner of gun laws. They had a caliber limit. It was very difficult to wn anything as large as even a .270. They were waiting for an approval to get the little .17 Remington added to guns approved for the civilains. That was in 1994.

As for handguns i can buy any handgun i want i own 4 the ban did not apply in this part of the UK. Just as there are different gun laws in states in America the laws are different in regions of the UK.
I think it is england that you can't keep your guns in your house.

No in the UK all firearms have to be kept at the owners address in a approved gun cabinet.

Seriously, if it were to reach that point of regulation here, i would either be posting from prison or from the grave. I have a gun safe, because it was given to me. I use trigger locks that come with firearms for locking the fence and my footlocker.

We have too many gun regulations now, anything more is begging for reprisals against the government's tyranny.

Caliber isn't really a issue. For target shooting the only limit on caliber is what the range is certificated for. 50 call for example is used on ranges. As for hunting .308 is popular. One limit on caliber in N Ireland is for personal protection 9mm is the largest call allowed.

I don't make the rules. Its simple no approved gun safe no firearm.

Quote Applicants who satisfy our enquiries will normally be visited at home by a police officer. The Officer will discuss the application and proposed security arrangements. This officer will report to the Chief Officer of Police after his visit and if your application is approved, the certificate will be granted. If your security was installed and the officer inspected it on his visit, the certificate can be posted to you. If your security has not been installed, your certificate will be hand delivered by a Police Officer who will hand you your certificate once he is satisfied your security has been installed correctly.
