Default Heads up Scottish airgun owners

http://www.shootingtimes.co.uk/news/..._licensed.html

It would seem that Scotland is now more determined than ever to become the 'California' of the UK. Soon 500,000+ law abiding Scottish airgun owners will have to go and beg their local police for a licence to keep their guns (the suckers who comply at least). The Scottish assembly has also hinted that they want to tighten up shotgun legislation too.

I used to be somewhat against Scottish independence, but now i actually want them to go, before they drag the rest of the UK down with them.

I'm surprised it's taken this long.

Default Something to which one might look forward

On the bright side, the world economy is going to collapse in the not too distant future. Governments will be crumbling like sandcastles. People who are strong and self-sufficient will survive and parasite people will perish. Anyone you might recognize as having been part of the Left / big-government, turn them away at your door and leave them for the dogs to consume.

Personally, I long to hear the screams in the night.

All my life, I have been looked down upon. Soon I will hear their wails tapering off into silence.

One could give them an airgun to kill themselves with ... oops, not powerful enough, ha ha ha ha ha ...

Sambo, so I understand you correctly, you want air rifle licenses to be implemented in Australia?

No, I don't. But to own an air rifle, we need to have a licence for it first and it's been that way for decades.

OK, I think I understand now. In Australia, a license is needed to legally own a BB gun or air rifle and y'all have had that law for decades. Hmm, that really sucks!.....

That's what happens when you have no rights and the majority of the voting public think that firearms laws aren't strong enough. It's democracy in action.
