Jeffers admitted possessing a firearm with intent to endanger life and was jailed for 10 years.

Goes to show you can still get 'em ... if you mean business.

That, or the number of idiots is (I actually typed are instead of is, but I'm drunk) increasing. I know I'm part of that problem.



No... The number of idiots isn't fluctuating that much. We've always been here, lol.

I think it really comes down to blind and humorless sourpusses that can't take a joke. For all the times I've been accused of being a "snowflake" for defending against personal attacks, I'd say this new breed of snowflake takes the cake.

UK gun free? This is an oft cited myth.

The UK is not gun free. There are over a 1.3 million licensed guns in circulation. It's just the UK culture is not gun orientated. We don't feel the urge to carry a gun with us when we are out shopping, nor do our police feel the urge to shoot people for (er) walking away.

Shooting someone in the wizzie probably demonstrates a lack of intelligence rather than an advert for the reasons not to possess guns.

We should come up with a name for that. Dumbcakes? Doesn't seem punchy enough, you should start a thread on this, I'm all lazy and pretending to go to sleep.

If you want it no matter where in the world and the legality of what it is you want so long as you have the cold hard cash you can get it or at least find a copper trying to pass off as a hitman/seller of weapons.

Basic level shotguns and pistols that probably are more likely to blow your hand off than kill someone else are normally easy to get as they'll get passed on quickly with perhaps a small bit of ammo as if they've been used in an area they normally get moved on sharpish.

Got to admit in 40+ years on this planet I aint had a gun pulled on me and probably never will and the best thing was when I went Greece the security guy must of wanted a coffee and he popped his SMG on the desk about 10ft from me and just wandered off at the airport.

We do have guns. It's called the IRON FIST.

Plenty of people in the UK have guns. The percentage of private ownership is not as high because, unlike the population of certain other countries, we do not live in perpetual fear of our neighbours, law enforcement, or the government. Because WE ARE NAILS!

After reading the article, I can't help but feel like you all need more guns. This woman is having sex with this man(I can only imagine what they were doing with the gun), and it happens to go off. Afterwards, she tells police that the guy is a "bad man". He's a "bad man", yet she's having a "sex fantasy" with him and his weapon. Yeah, sure sounds like you guys need more natural selection in your lives.

Yes. I agree that the UK should not have guns. You know what, why we are at it, you may as well do away with your military also. Get rid of anything that can be used as a weapon. You can then proceed to create plastic bubbles for each of your inhabitants to reside in. Safe Spaces for all.

I'll second that, my friend. Darwinism works.

This thread really isn't as much about firearms as it is about abject STUPIDITY.

I mean the nasty, 1%, deeply ingrained, embarrassing kind of stupid.

Sadly, even after this, the stupid is still there.

But If I had a handgun I wouldn't trust myself to not do silly things like pretending to be Yosamity Sam when drunk.
I'm bad enough with a Longbow.
Your argument appears to be you can't be trusted with a gun so no one should be. I don't care either way what our neighbors across the pond do for gun laws, just not a very good argument.

If there was no such thing as the UK military the US military would not have the high standards to dream of aspiring to. Why don't you pay us a visit and run your mouth off in the high street, you will get a good old fashioned kicking, and you will experience healthcare free at the point of delivery, after our unarmed police have arranged free transport to A & E for you.

Are you suggesting if you run your mouth off in America you will not get your ass kicked by a mob of people? Or are you suggesting Brits have no self control and are brutish thugs while Americans are far more refined and have self control?

All I am saying is that it is you would almost certainly not be shot.
