The Smallest Minority on earth is the individual. Those who deny individual rights cannot claim to be defenders of minorities. - Ayn Rand
It's much like a show I saw on TV: a paraplegic war veteran begun to make guns in his home - but to seel them to the underwolrd. Then he killed a vicious criminal harassing him.
Yes, it's good to see that sometimes the leniency of the British justice is properly targeted.
The Brits have their own problems with militant Islamists burrowed into their society and calling for their downfall, but the Crown's po-leece are spending their time investigating a pensioned-off old bubblehead who's sharp with a drill press and a lathe?
Reminds me of the '90s here in the States, when the Feds were busy chasing the "Two Guys Militia" while ignoring Arab flight-school students.
Commented a while back at a place where the blogger was ranting that 'making guns requires specialized equipment and skills and couldn't be done by anyone except an expert'. I pointed out that, among other things, a sub-gun would be easier to make than a revolver, and would need very little in the way of tooling; a drill press, the proper reamer(chamber reamer not required) and so forth. They didn't believe it.
Maybe something like this will convince them.
I like how they write relative ease in which someone can attempt... to do something. Kinda dumb.
I'm going to attempt to scale Mt. Everest right now. I hope they put that in the record books.
That, and isn't calling three guns a "cache" a bit of overstatement?
Well, remember, this comes from the media that described the full-auto Glock model 18 9mm pistol as the "most terrifying gun in the world"! So no, calling three guns a "cache" isn't that big of a stretch. Calling it an arsenal....
During WWII there was a plea for Americans (regular citizens mind you) to send guns to the UK because of the fear of invasion given that the general populace was disarmed.
Quote from Sir Winston Churchill "Their Finest Hour"
"When the ships from America approached our shores with their priceless arms, special trains were waiting in all ports to receive their cargoes. The Home Guard in every county, in every village, sat up through the night to receive them. ... By the end of July we were an armed nation ... ."
I wonder what will happen next time GB is threatened?
Well, I won't be sending them my spare firearms, that's for certain.
Relative ease? The guy was a retired Royal Navy engineer who then worked at Rolls Royce. If he did not have the skill to do it who would?
