In less than 2 weeks, Mr Tony Blair - our wise and wonderful Prime Minister, will have managed to sneak a 'back door Parliamentary Bill' on to the
English [UK] Statute book.
In effect, private citizens of whatever race, colour, creed or social standing, will no longer be able to purchase certain Replica weapons, Blank
Firing Replica weapons, Deactivated weapons or possess any of the above.
I do know from a very good friend in Glos police, that there will be a very short 'amnesty' and thereafter, proscecutions will take place. Penalties
are in line with the 1968 Firearms Act [Ammended 1972, 1981, 1990 & 1997/8]
For a first offense under this act, a citizen could face a £5000 fine and/or 14 years imprisonment.
This is, as far as I am concerned, a last ditched attempt by this Labour Government to ban all types of weaponry from we, the public.
What do you think about this and, more importantly, did any of you fellow Brits know about this?
Or, better yet, what do you Yanks think about this? How would you get around this new law [legally] or how would you stop this from happening in the
Just to put things into perspective, I own an H&K MP5 and a superb little Berretta Brigadier - both 9 milly of course - and I guess that I'm kinda in
the brown stuff 'cause they are 'illegals!'
