Care to embarrass yourself with a description of your "handguns" and how you can possibly legally own them in the UK?

You can't buy a fucking air rifle over a certain power level.

Worry about gas prices? No. That is your problem. Just like the VAT.

Personally, I have no problems at all with the red-light cameras because there is a correlation between them and cutting down on violations, and hence, accidents. I do have a problem with the dumb radar cameras, because all they do is bring in revenue, and most of that revenue goes to the company from whom the governments lease the equipment.

It's worth noting that there is a very strong correlation between running red (or so-called "orange") lights and being involved in serious accidents.

However, there is not a significant correlation between exceeding the posted speed limit and being involved in an accident. It is true that if you are speeding and in an accident, the damage and injuries will be worse than if you were driving slower, but speeding in and of itself (as long as it's done with some sense) rarely *causes* an accident. Of course NHTSA and the insurance industry can create conclusory statistics all they like, but the percentage relationship between reasonable speeding and causing or being involved in an accident is very, very small.

Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery. (Winston Churchill)

Firearms (Amendment) (No. 2) Act 1997

You need to belong to a Pistol Culb and that is where you shot , no I can not carry any of my firearms in public , unlike when I lived in New England . And I am only allowed to use shotguns on my land not the pistols . And the reason behind the power limit on air guns to to stop the kids hurting them selfs .
I don't worry about gas prices it's all small change and VAT is my accountant's problem not mine
Maine coon would know the shop I got my wilson 45 (embarrassing little sissy's gun I know )form the Kittery trading post , much cheaper than buying in the UK

Um, courts interpret and law ENFORCEMENT officers ENFORCE, hmmm see how those two words go together, would you like me to draw you a picture. It is the duty of law enforcement to enforce all the laws without being subjective to what they are.

Have fun getting raped at the petrol station by the tax man, on the motorway by the camera "man", and again by your government when it comes time to actually try to own a handgun like your cartoon character brandishes.

Now I understand why it was so easy for the gun grabbers to get you to heel.

An unarmed population will be easier to convert to Islam, I guess.

Allah O'Ahkbar! Maybe there won't "always be an England", after all. Bloody shame, it is.
Irony/handgun toting avatar/petrol station/cartoon/Allah O'Ahkbar?

What a load of incoherent, unrelated, racially slanted bollocks. However, it must be strong stuff you dropped-send me a gramme old boy.

I too am curious how a private individual can legally own a rimfire or centrefire handgun in the united kingdom, unlessen ourselves here in Northern Ireland of course.
To my knowledge private ownership of handguns ( in the UK ) is illegal, perhaps yer man has one of those long barrelled "buntline" abortions or somesuch other "technical" way round the rules as laid down. But then it aint a handgun is it.
Cheers anyway,
Marcus
