Re: Gun laws and hunting in the The UK
I'm not completely sure what happened to all the guns in 1997, but there have been numerous 'amnesties' when people can hand in illegal weapons with no questions asked. I don't know if the police bought them? They then had a huge clampdown on guns, and put lots of people in jail for a long time.
Quite a few people, mainly gun clubs and enthusiasts, were unhappy and tried to get some exemptions etc (which they succeeded in)
There were not big mass protests, and most of the population was in favour because they were genuinely appalled at what happened at Dunblane School and were determined nothing like that should happen again in Britain.
I quite like guns, and I have fired many different ones for many years ..... but when I'm in the pub with my wife and things get a bit drunkenly heated I'm normally glad that the mouthy little shit starting all the trouble probably doesn't have a hidden handgun on him.
Im talking about the UK here ... I have NOTHING to say about US gun laws
