A Bit of Firearm Sanity in Britain?

“That the subjects… may have arms for their defence suitable to their conditions and as allowed by law”

– The English Bill of Rights.

     Nigel Farage, of the UK Independence Party (UKIP),  gave an interview where he made a sane and rational statement: “I think the ban on handguns is ludicrous.”

     Unsurprisingly, some freedom-hating Brits think this is a scary idea:

     While she sees an indictment.  We see a bit of sanity starting to show up.

     Farage is only pushing for a mild and limited extension of a fundamental right:

“I would not like us to go to the American System which strikes me as being absolutely crazy that you can go and buy automatic repeating rifles down at a local gun shop that looks more like a supermarket.”

     Baby Steps.

    Excuse me Sir but as an American I can tell that this is not true. Only automatic arms built before 1986 may be purchased, which tends to make them extremely expensive, and even then you must pass a federal background check and be granted a special tax stamp by the federal government.

    You most definitely cannot walk into a gun store and walk out with an “automatic repeating rifle”. You just can’t, it isn’t legally possible.
