    My question to all of you is, how did firearm ownership last so long in GB?
    I'm definitely not surprised that firearm ownership was banned, but how in the world it lasted so long.

    the heller decision has dashed the hopes of the gun banners when scotus held you have the right to keep and bear arms. but they can make it very expensive with taxes on everything.

    It is worth noting that while gun laws in the UK are extremely restrictive and most guns are banned for most people in most of it's member territories there are also still tens of thousands of active shooters over there as well as a great deal of public support for improving their self-defense laws.

    "Be it enacted by the Congress, rifles, shotguns, and pistols are added to the definition of "firearm" under the National Firearms Act..."

    That would pretty much do it.

    Ironically, silencers are significantly easier to obtain than they are here...

    That's true in most of Europe and many other countries too. Often you can just buy them over the counter like we do with other gun parts. The sound suppressors are considered to be just another way to protect your hearing and to be respectful of the neighbors. Too bad the powers that be here in the US cant see the simple logic there.
