A former soldier who handed a discarded shotgun in to police faces at least five years imprisonment for "doing his duty".
Paul Clarke, 27, was found guilty of possessing a firearm at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday – after finding the gun and handing it personally to police officers on March 20 this year.
The jury took 20 minutes to make its conviction, and Mr Clarke now faces a minimum of five year's imprisonment for handing in the weapon.

The subjects of UK Have been disarmed.
It is illegal to own or poses a gun.
That said, I think it is beyond stupid.
I guess in UK, like the US, the police are not there to "protect and serve"
They are there to "Punish and Enslave" as was shown on cop car in transformers movie.
Truly bad show, UK.

The answer to this? Find a gun? Keep it! Hide it. Purchase ammunation, on the sly, and keep it hidden. Never know when TSHTF and you need a back up weapon to throw away after you done some evil deed.
