"The right to buy weapons is the right to be free." -A.E. van Vogt
Well, if a disgruntled parishioner were to run amok with one at church, whilst attending a service....
good to see that gun ban working so well for the british.
"Then he turned round and stared at me and he just had this absolutely huge sniper rifle. It was almost touching the floor, with a massive scope,"http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2010/jun/02/cumbria-shootings-dead-derrick-birdYep
"fowling pieces?" When did we jump back to the Victorian Era? Last time I saw that term used for a shotgun was in The Valley of Fear. Once-Great Britain is a lost cause.

AS usual, lots of fame for the killer. "Hey you, dark nutjob in your dirty cellar, this is the media/political complex that runs the earth- we have a message for you!Don't do it, but if you kill a bunch of people, the whole world will drop what it's doing and care about YOU. Prime ministers, rich men, the cute girl from high school who didn't even know your name, those supervisors at work, the $%^& QUEEN- you know, Winston Churchill's old boss- will know your name and CARE about YOUR MOTIVATION.Just thought you'd like to know, in case it affected your plans."
Legalizing firearms in Britain wouldn't change a thing. The people are gutless and wouldn't use them. Do what they did in Huddlesfield after the "massacre". When the Jamaican pimps and Cypriot drug peddlars killed 4 cops, the entire police force said it would quit if required to carry weapons. Now it's all very civilized. The Jamaicans pimp their women, the Cypriots sell their drugs, and the police direct traffic. All while the papersa and telly keep the lumps anesthitized.
Ed,It's not so much that the people are gutless and wouldn't use them, it's that self-defense in the country where Great Britain used to be, which results in injury or death to the bad guy, results in criminal charges for the good guy.This includes instances where, without resorting to self defense, the good guy would have been injured or killed. As if that weren't bad enough, the punishments for good guys injuring or killing bad guys are often more draconian than the usual slap on the wrist that real criminals get in the UK.
Montie,In fairness, the modern UK is starting to make Wells' The Time Machine look downright prophetic.
